|Assets:||Is plenty physical and has the projectable size to match. Also moves the puck out of trouble decently. Usually plays a safe game in the defensive zone.|
|Flaws:||Needs to add even more bulk to his 6-2 frame in order to withstand playing a physical style at the highest level over the long haul. Lacks some skill.|

I just tried to be consistent." In 64 games with the Canucks in 2013-14, he recorded 16 points and a plus-5 rating.

Darren Dreger on Twitter
ImpactStanton had 25 points and 126 penalty minutes in 73 AHL games last season. He was never able to earn regular playing time with the Chicago Blackhawks, but he might be a decent source of penalty minutes if he can earn a top-six role in Vancouver.

Ryan Stanton faces tough task with Blackhawks | 09/14/2013 10:17 AM
NewsAll six defensemen who contributed to the Chicago Blackhawks' championship season are back and so Ryan Stanton knows it'll be tough for him to crack the roster heading into the regular season.
ImpactBut he's clearly next on the totem pole should a Chicago blueliner suffer an injury or go into a slump. Stanton had a strong season with the Rockford IceHogs in the AHL in 2012-13, tallying 25 points and finishing plus-16 over 73 games. He also had 126 penalty minutes. Chicago coach Joel Quenneville understands the battle Stanton's in to earn a place. "He's in a competitive spot," Quenneville said. "We've liked his development in his career. He's another defenseman we think could play if given the chance. It looked like he belonged in practices when he came up (and played in one game) last year. We'll see how he plays. When you put him into an NHL game, you know you'll be comfortable with him on the ice."
