In an interview with Expressen, Johan Ryno confirmed that he would not continue his hockey career. Apart from a short stint in North America and in Switzerland, Ryno spent his entire career in Sweden.
Ryno joined HC Lugano in mid-February from Färjestad BK and was expected to play for the National League team until the end of the season. In the end, he only got to suit up for them in one game. The Bianconeri then announced in March that his contract would not be extended.
