Ryan Reaves is one tough customer. New Jersey’s Bobby Farnham is … well, not so much. Farnham may think he can hang with the big boys of the NHL, but Reaves isn’t buying what Farnham is selling. Another angle: Farnham had a chip on his shoulder throughout the rest of the game and later delivered […]
Ryan Reaves loves his pranks. When he’s not uploading videos of him scaring various Blues players, he’s drawing on Ty Rattie’s face during an interview. Rattie was called up as a response to the team’s rash of injuries, but he had no idea that a Sharpie was waiting for him. Another look: Gotta love Reaves.
Ryan Reaves hasn’t had a great 2015-16 to date. Aside from missing some of his usual great forechecking and speed, Reaves has also refrained from dropping his gloves. That changed on Saturday when he fought for the first time this season, battling Calgary’s Deryk Engelland.
Last season, Ryan Reaves proved to be the perfect combination of muscle and skill. Always willing to drop his gloves, Reaves demonstrated that he could produce offensively with six goals and six assists in 81 games.

On the night Major League Baseball started a new season, Ryan Reaves provided another reminder why hockey players are considered the toughest in sports.

When the news broke that Ryan Reaves was being promoted from the fourth line to the third line, some fans questioned the intent. If you haven’t been following Reaves’ game closely this season, you may have missed the fact he has elevated his game, shed the enforcer label and has transformed into a strong, powerful […]
Are these officials trolling us? Ryan Reaves and Eric Bolton dropped their mitts and were preparing to engage in what would have been a heavyweight battle. The two positioned themselves and as soon as the first punch was about to be thrown, the officials stepped in and broke things up.
The St. Louis Blues have been struggling to find their offensive balance. While the STL line continues to roll and score on a nightly basis, the rest of the key players have been mostly silent. I already touched on the fact Paul Stastny has been off to a slow start, but other skaters (T.J. Oshie, […]
Ryan Reaves has struck again! This time he has the help of Max Lapierre in a prank pulled on Ian Cole. Reaves and Lapierre (with a brief cameo from Barret Jackman) plastic wrap Cole’s car and then film the results.
Ryan Reaves’ new hobby is scaring Kevin Shattenkirk for our enjoyment. Let’s hope this is just the first video of many.
Have you ever noticed how Ryan Reaves looks a little bit … off in EA’s NHL line of video games? It turns out that Reaves has noticed too. Previously, Chris Stewart suffered the same fate. Is it really that hard for EA to get skin tone at least kind of accurate? Apparently it is, as […]
Ryan Reaves dropped the mitts 10 times over the course of 63 games in 2013-14. If it seems like you didn’t see Reaves fight quite as often as you did in previous years, you’re right. He fought seven times in 43 games in 2012-13 and 13 times in 60 games in 2011-12. Though he focused […]
