“This was a very difficult decision, but as an organization moving forward we thought it’s the best for not only the Philadelphia Wings, but for Chris,” Wings Head Coach & GM Paul Day said. “Ryan is a fast, physical defenseman and has played for our defensive coach Ian Ruble. We needed some help defensively and we’re able to acquire a very good athlete who’s only 24 and already has quite a bit of experience in the league.”

This season, Wagner played in four games for the Bandits. He had 14 loose balls, 3 caused turnovers and 1 shot.

In 2018, his first season with Buffalo, he had 15 appearances. He had one goal and 10 assists for 11 points with 2 PIM. He had one power-play assist, one short-handed assists, and one game-winning goal.
