During the Senators game, the Jansen children held up a sign saying if Ryan scored, their dad would get them a dog.
Ryan picked up his 17th score on a scrum in front of the Rangers net at the 19:40 mark of the second period. The goal actually ended up being the game-winner.
During the game, TSN interviewed the Jansen family, who said the father had been bugged for about three months to get a dog. So he offered his children the bet and lost. Now they’re getting a Pomsky they say they'll name Bobby.
“I just shouldn’t have picked such a talented player like Bobby Ryan,” the father said.
According to Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen, Ryan said he felt more pressure to get the family a puppy than he did for calling out his teammates.
