2019 Fantasy Outlook
A contract dispute early in the year and injuries later on didn't stop Ritchie from having his best season yet as a pro in 2018-19, posting 31 points (nine goals, 22 assists) in just 60 games. The 234-pounder also contributed 123 hits and 82 penalty minutes while settling into his role as the physical force on the Ducks' second line. The 23-year-old has yet to play a full 82-game schedule -- in part due to his heavy playing style -- but an increased role could make him an intriguing fantasy option this year. Expect the 6-foot-2 winger to approach 40 points, 200 hits and 100 PIM if he can stay healthy in 2019-20. Read Past Outlooks

Big impact in second Boston game
LWBoston Bruins
February 27, 2020
Ritchie finished with a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Stars.
ANALYSIS
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.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
2014
A 6-foot-2, 234-pound frame gave Ritchie the confidence to lead the Ducks in hits for two straight seasons, dishing out 247 and 221, respectively. His size can hold him back in the speed department, but the Ontario native makes up for it with astute positioning and puck-handling, registering 24 goals and 31 helpers over the last two years. Ritchie accomplished this while logging bottom-six minutes, but the 22-year-old will battle Andrew Cogliano for the second-line left-wing spot this year. How Ritchie would respond to facing opponents' top defenders nightly is a reason for concern, and the return of Patrick Eaves (illness) could complicate things. Ritchie's undetermined role on the team is enough concern for fantasy owners to take a wait-and-see approach.
Ritchie’s 2016-17 results need to be viewed with the proper lens. Yes, his 28 points (14 goals, 14 assists) in 77 games look pedestrian at first glance, but the 6-foot-2, 232-pound power winger hit that value despite averaging a tick below 13 minutes per contest. Moreover, he has the attention of team brass having buried four goals -- including a pair of game-winners -- on last season’s playoff stage. Ritchie effectively uses his size to his advantage, and it results in steady production across the board. Entering his third season, Ritchie is the type of player you’ll likely want to pounce on before he becomes a household name in fantasy circles.
Ritchie, the 10th overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, is a big, nasty, skilled winger who is like a dog after a bone -- he never, ever gives up in his pursuit of the puck. And he’ll go through a wall to get it. He hits, he scores and he scares the snot out of opposing defenders just like Milan Lucic does. And it’s that combination that has scouts salivating. He has struggled through injuries in junior. And his weight is a bit of an issue (230 pounds). But he’s a potential multi-category fantasy stud...as long as he’s more Lucic than Nathan Horton.
