This picture has been making the rounds through Ottawa's corner of the internet lately, but I figured there's no better way to kick off Bobby Ryan's first day in town -- to be known henceforth as 'Ryanpalooza' -- with this throwback photo.

Above you see a very young Bobby Ryan on his draft weekend -- July 31, 2005 to be exact -- in a Mighty Ducks jersey and a (now defunct) Ottawa Lynx ballcap. He signed autographs at the ballpark that day.

Little did he know he'd be back in town to play for the hometown NHL team a couple weeks shy of eight years later.
