However, the young winger has expressed regret, saying that he was remorseful just 10 minutes following the interview with a New Jersey paper, in which he made headlines the next day.
"I was like 'Gosh, I shouldn't have done that ... it was kind of stupid,'" Ryan told the Orange County Register.
Although the Philadelphia Flyers, the team Ryan grew up cheering for, offered to send former winger James van Riemsdyk to Anaheim as the key piece in return for Ryan, no trade was made.
Ryan couldn't be happier to be back with his teammates.
"I wanted to come back to (my home in) Newport Beach and come back to this team and this group of guys," Ryan added. "Always. That was the No. 1 thing."
Ducks GM Bob Murray, who was quite disappointed to hear Ryan's hope to be dealt back in June, has not shared any details on the winger's future with the club. He had mentioned though that a meeting would be needed to clear the air, but has yet to take place.
However, Ryan doesn't believe his GM needs to publicly take him off the trade block as he did back in November when coach Bruce Boudreau was hired to replace Randy Carlyle behind the bench.
"I know that I have Bruce's support and that means a lot to me. The general manager is obviously the person that pulls the strings behind the curtain. But having the support of your head coach ... I feel like I have a great relationship with Bruce," Ryan said. "I think that if Bruce wants me here, I'm here to stay.
"I can't speak for the front office. I have no idea. Hopefully it's something they can clear up with you. As far as I'm concerned, I'm here and I'm ready to go."
In 82 games with the Ducks last season, Ryan posted 31 goals and 26 assists for 57 points.
