Ritchie signed a one-year, $900,000 deal with the Flames on Thursday.
Ritchie hasn't gotten close to replicating his 2016-17 numbers when he garnered 16 goals and 24 points in 78 games with the Stars. Since then, the 28-year-old winger has cracked the 10-point threshold just once, including managing a mere eight points in 32 games this year. The Ontario native shouldn't be expected to offer much fantasy value this year and figures to serve primarily in a bottom-six role.
Ritchie produced a goal and two assists with two shots in Wednesday's 6-2 win over the Canucks.
Ritchie entered the game with just five points in 31 games, but blew up in the season finale with the first three-point performance of his seven-year NHL career.

He's mostly played in a fourth-line role as head coach Darryl Sutter tries to juggle his line combinations to help kick-start the team's offense.
