Ritchie is an interesting prospect. He's not a big body, but he's not small either. At 6'0, 174lbs I He will add more weight as he matures and gets stronger. He provides reliable effort tracking up and down the ice. When he suited up for Team Canada, at the Hlinka Gretzky Cup in the summer, he was involved. He doesn't cheat the game. His reads are responsible. Rarely does he get caught deep in the offensive zone. He's above the play when his group doesn't have control of the puck.
