Former Ryerson Ram makes his mark in France

Every kid who hits the ice at a young age wants to make the National Hockey League (NHL).

If you take a look at the Ryerson baseball team roster, you’ll notice many of the players are from Ontario – Toronto, Markham or Scarborough, for example – but this year, the team has a new player who’s neither from Ontario, nor from Canada.

Aidan Dolan made the trek over the southern border from the U.S. to start his first year at Ryerson this fall. Dolan hails from Buffalo Grove, Ill., a town just north of Chicago.
