Bryan played much of his minor hockey for the Cambridge Hawks of the Alliance Pavilion League until 2001-02 season.
He then played for the Cambridge Winter Hawks Jr.B hockey team when he was 14 years old while attending Southwood Secondary School until he was 15 years old when he moved on to the OHL Barrie Colts.
Bryan was selected in the 3rd round (50th overall) in the 2003 OHL Draft after a standout season with the Winter Hawks.
Bryan was selected first round (12th overall) in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft by the Atlanta Thrashers. He won a gold medal with Team Canada at the 2007 World Junior Hockey Championship.
Bryan played Junior B for the Cambridge Winter Hawks. After four seasons playing for the Barrie Colts of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) in which he played in 2006 CHL-NHL Top Prospects Game, he joined the Thrashers' farm team, the Chicago Wolves for two games in the 2007 playoffs, recording no points or penalties.
According to one local columnist, "He didn’t play much, and he was playing out of position, but the biggest thing was that he fit right in ... he played like he'd been there all season."
Bryan signed a three-year NHL entry level contract with the Atlanta Thrashers and was committed to them up to the end of the 2009–10 NHL season. He made the Thrashers out of training camp in 2007 and joined the team full-time.
Bryan made his NHL debut on October 5, 2007, scoring in his first game, the first Thrasher ever to do so.
Midway through the season, Bryan was demoted to the Wolves where he would go on to win the 2008 Calder Cup Championship. He would spend the entire 2008–09 NHL season with the Thrashers, scoring 31 goals.
He re-signed with the Atlanta Thrashers as a restricted free agent in August 2010. He signed a three-year contract worth $7.15 million.
Due to team relocation, Bryan now plays for the Winnipeg Jets. When the team relocated to Winnipeg, he changed his uniform number from #10 to #18 out of respect for Dale Hawerchuk who played for the original Winnipeg Jets.
Prior to going to arbitration, Bryan and the Winnipeg Jets agreed to a 5-year, $23.5 million contract on July 22, 2013. In the first year of his new contract in the 2013–14 season, he had a career year offensively, putting up 64 points, playing in all 82 games.
