Ducks notes, part III: Ryan will hit gym again.

from Sunday’s Ducks notebook, which didn’t make it to the web in every market…

Bobby Ryan reported to training camp last year having shed 20 pounds after an offseason training regimen.

This summer, he plans on staying in Anaheim to get even more fit.

“I think last summer was a good start,” Ryan said. “I had a good foundation. Now it’s going to be a different kind of training this summer for me. Put on a little more muscle, chip away at the baby fat, and continue to do the things they’re telling me.”

The results were evident in Ryan’s game this season. He led all rookies with 31 goals and 57 points, and was named a finalist for the Calder Trophy. He’s hoping the results of this summer’s hard work will translate to his sophomore season.

“I’m looking forward to it,” he said. “It’s going to be another summer like last one. I’m not going home at all.”
