Ryan Parent (born March 17, 1987) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman who currently plays within the Vancouver Canucks organization of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing careerEdit

Parent grew up in the remote town of Sioux Lookout, Ontario, playing minor hockey for the Flyers rep program until his minor bantam year. At age 15, he played AAA hockey for the Thunder Bay Kings Bantam team and was a teammate of future NHL'ers Tom Pyatt and Marc Staal. Parent was then signed by the Waterloo Siskins Jr.B. team for the 2002-03 season before being drafted by the Guelph Storm in the 1st round (8th overall) in the 2003 OHL Priority Selection.

Parent was drafted by the Nashville Predators in the first round, 18th overall, in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. After playing three seasons in the Ontario Hockey League with the Guelph Storm, Parent joined the Milwaukee Admirals for the 2006 American Hockey League playoffs. He returned to the Guelph Storm for the 2006–07 season. Parent also played on both Canada's 2006 and 2007 World Jr. Hockey Championship gold-medal winning teams.

On February 15, 2007, Parent was traded along with Scottie Upshall, a 1st round draft-pick, and a 3rd round draft-pick to the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for Peter Forsberg. On April 5, 2007, Parent made his NHL debut with the Flyers against the New Jersey Devils. He scored his first NHL goal during the 2009–10 season in a 7-4 Flyers loss against the Florida Panthers.[1]

Parent is considered a defensive specialist and he has been often compared to NHL players Scott Hannan and Robyn Regehr. He was nicknamed "Bernie" by his Flyers teammates because of former Flyers net minder Bernie Parent.[2] The two are not related and pronounce their last names differently.

On June 19, 2010, Parent was traded back to the Nashville Predators along with a 2011 conditional draft pick for the rights to Dan Hamhuis.[3] However before the regular season began Parent was traded to the Vancouver Canucks along with Jonas Andersson for Shane O'Brien and Dan Gendur. Vancouver then put Parent on waivers.[4] Parent cleared waivers and is currently on the Canucks roster.
