Brett Ritchie has scored a goal in three of the last four games.

He tallied his sixth marker of the year in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to Nashville, which matches the total he had in 31 games during the 2014-15 campaign. Ritchie has seven points through 21 contests this year.

Brett Ritchie potted his fifth goal of 2016-17 in Monday's 3-2 overtime win over Minnesota.

He has accounted for six points in 20 contests this season. Ritchie is on pace to easily surpass the nine points he scored in 31 outings during the 2014-15 campaign.

Brett Ritchie scored one of two Dallas Stars goals Saturday night in their 3-2 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

Ritchie’s goal at the 7:21 minute mark of the first period tied the game and a little more than two minutes later, Curtis McKenzie gave the Stars a brief lead. It was eventually squandered, but Ritchie can still feel positive about his contribution because he snapped a four-game streak in which he failed to earn a single point. This was his third goal of the season with his most recent one coming again the Jets on October 25th.

Brett Ritchie led the Dallas Stars in shots on goal with six, but none of them got past Devan Dubnyk in the 4-0 shutout loss to the Minnesota Wild Saturday night.

This was the Stars’ second shutout loss in their last four games. In some ways, it was also Ritchie’s most promising outing because he has not had more than three shots on goal in a game yet this season.

The Dallas Stars saw production from two younger scorers in a 6-5 loss to the Colorado Avalanche.

Both Brett Ritchie and Devin Shore enjoyed one-goal, one-assist games on Saturday. If younger players can chip in semi-regularly, an already frightening Stars offense could be borderline unstoppable.

Brett Ritchie will probably be part of the Dallas Stars' opening game roster.

It's not too surprising that Ritchie seemingly made the team given that he signed a one-way deal in June, but it still was something he had to earn after spending most of 2015-16 in the minors. He's got some offensive upside, but that could be mitigated in the short-term by a bottom-six role.

Brett Ritchie is expected to make the Stars roster out of training camp.

Ritchie spent most of his time in the AHL last season, but he signed a one-way deal during the off-season. That doesn't mean he can't be sent to the minors though. The odds of him sticking around in the NHL are pretty good. He scored 10 points in 39 NHL games over the last two seasons. He won't have any fantasy value.

Brett Ritchie's new contract is a one-way deal.

He is set to earn $875,000 in 2016-17, so he should get a long look at training camp for a roster spot on Dallas. Ritchie has played 39 NHL games over the last two seasons and he has contributed 10 points.

Brett Ritchie has signed a one-year contract with the Dallas Stars.

He spent most of the 2015-16 campaign in the minors with Texas, where he had 14 goals and 28 points in 35 games. He also posted one assist in eight appearances with Dallas.

Look for Brett Ritchie to be a healthy scratch in Game 6.

Ritchie played in each of the last two games of the series, but he'll sit with Patrick Eaves returning tonight. Jamie Oleksiak, Curtis McKenzie, Patrik Nemeth, Jamie Oleksiak and Jordie Benn will also watch the game from the press box.

It's unclear if Brett Ritchie will be in the lineup for Game 6.

Ritchie alternated with Antoine Roussel on the third line during the morning skate. He doesn't have a point in two appearances, while averaging less than seven minutes of ice time, so it wouldn't be surprising if he was in the press box.

Brett Ritchie made his NHL playoff debut on Thursday night in a 3-2 overtime win over St. Louis.

He had a minus-1 rating in just 6:36 of ice time. Ritchie appeared in eight games with the Stars during the regular season. Coach Lindy Ruff scratched Curtis McKenzie and Colton Sceviour to make room for Ritchie and Valeri Nichushkin.

Brett Ritchie leads Dallas' scratches in Tuesday's Game 3 against St. Louis.

Ritchie will be joined by Patrik Nemeth, Jamie Oleksiak, Jordie Benn, and Valeri Nichushkin. Unfortunately, there isn't a lick of value to speak of here.

Brett Ritchie or Curtis McKenzie could get into the lineup for Game 3 on Tuesday night at St. Louis.

Coach Lindy Ruff said they are options to play after they practiced on Monday. The Texas Stars were knocked out of the Calder Cup Playoffs in the first round, so Ritchie and McKenzie were called up over the weekend. If Ritchie gets to play then it would be his NHL playoff debut.
