Bruins' Nick Ritchie: Big impact in second Boston game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ritchie finished with a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Stars.

After a quiet Bruins debut, the trade deadline acquisition left a mark in his second game with his new club. Ritchie's ninth goal of the season gave his team a 3-1 lead in the second period, and he added an assist on David Pastrnak's tally in the third. The power forward's game should fit well in Boston, but don't expect productive scoring efforts like this one to become the norm, though a change of scenery away from the low-scoring Ducks is a positive for fantasy owners relying on Ritchie in deeper formats.

Bruins' Nick Ritchie: Set to debut on third line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ritchie will make his debut for the Bruins in Tuesday night's game against the Flames.

Ritchie is slated to work on the Bruins' third line with Charlie Coyle and Anders Bjork on Tuesday. It's a combo that could stay together with the team hoping that the 6-foot-2, 230-pound Ritchie can provide the sort of capable big-bodied presence up front that Boston's brass was looking to add prior to Monday's NHL trade deadline.

Bruins' Nick Ritchie: Moved at deadline
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bruins acquired Ritchie from Anaheim in exchange for Danton Heinen on Monday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

The 6-foot-2, 230-pounder gives the Bruins some added size up front and seems likely to work in a bottom-six role for Boston out of the gate. Prior to Monday's trade, Ritchie logged eight goals and 19 points in 41 games for the Ducks.

Ducks' Nick Ritchie: Two of each Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ritchie scored two goals, dished two assists and went plus-4 in Sunday's 6-5 overtime loss to the Golden Knights.

Ritchie and Adam Henrique each had four-point efforts as the Ducks' second line carried the offense in the high-scoring affair. The big game bumped Ritchie up to eight goals and 19 points in 41 contests this year. He's added 79 hits, 78 PIM and 70 shots.

Ducks' Nick Ritchie: Opens scoring for Anaheim
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ritchie scored a goal on his only shot of the game Tuesday in a 3-2 shootout win over Ottawa.

Ritchie drew first blood for the Ducks midway through the first period when he potted his fifth goal of the season. A bottom-six winger, Ritchie has five goals and 12 points in 32 games this season.

Ducks' Nick Ritchie: Nets power-play tally in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ritchie (knee) scored a power-play goal and skated 17:53 during Monday's 4-2 loss to the Sharks.

Ritchie assumed a second-line role in the contest and produced on special teams, but that tally came with the result already out of hand for the Ducks. The 24-year-old now has 11 points, 47 hits and 54 PIM in 28 games. Ritchie has typically filled whatever role is necessary in the last couple of seasons -- expect the forward to move around the lineup rather than maintain a consistent role.

Ducks' Nick Ritchie: Back in lineup Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ritchie (knee) will suit up for Monday's contest in San Jose.

Ritchie sprained his MCL in early December and missed the last 19 games rehabbing the injury. The 24-year-old forward has 10 points in 24 contests this season.

Ducks' Nick Ritchie: Won't return to lineup Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ritchie (knee) is not listed on the roster report for Friday's game versus the Hurricanes, indicating he will not make his return.

Ritchie remains on injured reserve at this time. The 24-year-old winger is recovering from a sprained left MCL suffered on Dec. 6. Ritchie will have an extended amount of time to get back up to game speed, -- the Ducks begin their bye week following Friday's game, and they won't play again until Jan. 27. He'll need to be activated from injured reserve prior to making his return.

Ducks' Nick Ritchie: Still sidelined Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ritchie (knee) won't play in Thursday's tilt versus the Predators.

Ritchie was deemed a game-time decision earlier in the day, but he will have to wait for his return to the lineup as he recovers from a sprained left MCL. The 24-year-old will get another chance to slot into his usual bottom-six role for Friday's game against Carolina.

Ducks' Nick Ritchie: Ahead of schedule
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ritchie (knee) will be a game-time call for Thursday's matchup with Nashville, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.

Ritchie is evidently way ahead of schedule in his recovery, as he was intially given a 6-10 week recovery timetable after spraining his left MCL on Dec. 6. If he's able to go, the 24-year-old will slot into a bottom-six role against the Predators.

Ducks' Nick Ritchie: Faces lengthy recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ritchie will be out 6-to-10 weeks with a sprained left MCL, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.

Ritchie suffered this injury during Friday's loss to the Capitals, and he's unlikely to return until late January at the earliest. The six-week timeline lands during the All-Star break, so Ritchie will aim to return following that. The 24-year-old has accrued 10 points through the first 27 games, and it's unsettled who will bump into the top six in his place, although Maxime Comtois is a top candidate.

Ducks' Nick Ritchie: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Ducks placed Ritchie (lower body) on injured reserve per the NHL's official media site.

Ritchie was forced to leave Friday's game with a lower-body injury, and with his placement on IR, will need to sit out a minimum of three games. Coach Dallas Eakins said Friday that Ritchie could be facing an extended absence, so his timetable for a return remains unclear. In his stead, Maxime Comtois is expected to draw into the lineup.

Ducks' Nick Ritchie: Could face extended absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

In his post-game interview, coach Dallas Eakins said Ritchie's lower-body injury didn't look good, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.

While Eakins didn't officially specify what injury Ritchie was dealing with, Stephens reports that his knee was mentioned. Ritchie exited Friday's game after a hit by Radko Gudas, and the Ducks' winger was unable to put weight on his left leg. A more specific update on the 24-year-old should come in the next few days.

Ducks' Nick Ritchie: Suffers apparent leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ritchie left Friday's game versus the Capitals with an apparent leg injury, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.

Ritchie went down awkwardly in the corner after a hit from Radko Gudas in the first period. The severity of Ritchie's injury is unknown, but he needed help to get off the ice. If the winger misses time, Maxime Comtois will likely replace him in the lineup.

Ducks' Nick Ritchie: Dishes assist Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ritchie managed an assist and two hits in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Wild.

Ritchie had the secondary assist on Jacob Larsson's first NHL goal at 1:52 of the second period. Ritchie has provided decent depth scoring with eight points in 15 appearances. His physicality (24 PIM, 27 hits) and first-unit power-play time could make him worth a roster spot in deeper fantasy formats.

Ducks' Nick Ritchie: Breaks lengthy goal drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ritchie scored a power-play goal on three shots and had two PIM in Sunday's 3-2 overtime loss to Chicago.

Ritchie sent the game into overtime with his goal 6:17 into the second period. It was just his second goal of the year and first in nearly a month, snapping an 11-game slump. He does have points in four of his last six games, but you can look elsewhere for offensive help.

Ducks' Nick Ritchie: Helpers in three straight games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ritchie registered an assist and two shots on goal in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Golden Knights.

Ritchie showed continued chemistry with his new linemates, relaying a pass to Maxime Comtois, who then set up Ryan Getzlaf for the tally. Ritchie now has six points and 21 hits through 11 appearances, and his current top-line usage could make the physical winger worth a look in deeper formats.

Ducks' Nick Ritchie: Sets up insurance goal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ritchie produced an assist, two PIM, two shots on goal and a pair of hits in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Avalanche.

Newly promoted to the top line, Ritchie found linemate Maxime Comtois for an insurance tally in the third period. Ritchie is up to five points, 19 shots on goal, and 22 PIM in 10 games this season. He'll see a bump in value while skating alongside Ryan Getzlaf, but the 23-year-old winger is likely to be shuffled all over the lineup throughout the campaign.

Ducks' Nick Ritchie: Dishes nifty assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ritchie picked up an assist and tacked on five hits in Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Penguins.

The physical winger had the puck pinned against the board behind the net before sliding a backhand pass to Ondrej Kase, who buried it for the only Ducks goal of the game. Ritchie was showing off the skill that got him drafted 10th overall in 2014. He had a career-high 31 points last season, and figures to factor in the offense more this year as he holds a spot on the first power-play unit.

Ducks' Nick Ritchie: Racks up 18 PIM
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ritchie received four minor penalties and a misconduct in the third period of Friday's 5-2 win over the Kings.

Ritchie became a familiar face in the sin bin in the Ducks' final game, and then his role in a kerfuffle at the end of the game put his count at 18 PIM. Ritchie had a career year with 31 points in 60 games, and he also set a new personal high with 82 PIM after Friday's festivities.
