Bryan was born in Pontiac, Michigan, but grew up in Troy, Michigan. He is the younger brother of retired AHL player Matt Rust who also played for the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins during the 2011–12 AHL season.
Bryan's speech is occasionally dysfluent because he is a person who stutters, but he is accepting of his stuttering.
