A familiar sight in BC, but a definite rarity in Ontario!

Another Pacific NW species I need a bit of help with. The ID the dive master gave me was Ringed Nudibranch but what I'm seeing when i search for that doesn't look much like this specimen.
I know its not a great pic but can anyone ID this rockfish? I'm looking at the NOAA guide and there look to be several possibilities.
