Rittich dealt with a knee injury from the start of 2019, Kristen Anderson of The Calgary Sun reports.

The injury occurred during an 8-5 win over the Sharks on Dec. 31. Rittich went 14-5-2 with a 2.83 GAA and a .902 save percentage after sustaining the injury. It will prevent the netminder from playing with the Czech Republic at the World Championship in Slovakia, as he will take the offseason to get healthy and prepared for next season.
