The 6'4, 215 pound hulk gathered 48 points in 68 games in the AHL last season, and could get his first taste of NHL action this coming season. Dallas Stars prospects defeated the New York Rangers prospects 4-3.

Ritchie added seven markers and four assists in 13 playoff contests. The 21-year-old forward doesn't have any NHL experience yet.

Brett Ritchie skipped practice Monday because of a lower-body contusion.

He did skate on his own though. "He's doing a lot better," coach Lindy Ruff said. "He just had a bad contusion that we felt is going to keep him out a few days. He may be available to play those last two games." Ritchie will probably begin his pro career in the minors.

Brett Ritchie has netted 24 goals in 30 OHL games this campaign for Niagara.

His goal output is presently the second most in the league behind only Oshawa's Boone Jenner (27). Ritchie is also fourth in the OHL scoring race with 47 points on the year. His success has earned him a spot on Canada's selection camp roster for the 2013 World Junior Championship. The 19-year-old is already built like a power forward at 6-foot-3 and 210 pounds and when his skill is factored into the equation it should make for an easier transition to the NHL when he's ready to wear a uniform with the Dallas Stars.
