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. Oct 16 - 12:29 AM

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.
May 9 - 8:01 PM

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.
May 9 - 5:44 PM

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.
May 2 - 6:12 PM

Brett Ritchie was recalled up to Dallas on Saturday.

In 39 career games up in the bigs, Ritchie has just 10 points. He has yet to play in the NHL playoffs, but has 13 points in 16 AHL playoff games for Texas.
Apr 30 - 5:05 PM

Brett Ritchie (lower body injury) was re-assigned back to AHL Texas on Sunday.

Ritchie didn't play in either of the first two playoff games for Dallas as he recovers from a lower-body injury. He is expected to play in the AHL postseason.
Apr 17 - 5:54 PM

Brett Ritchie is still day-to-day with a lower body injury as the Stars begin their playoff run.

According to Mike Heika, coach Lindy Ruff said "he is skating on his own and close to returning to practice." Dallas will play their first four games over the next week, so it's still unclear if the prized youngster will heal up in time to make an appearance. The 22-year-old has scored just 10 points through his first 39 games of his NHL career. Down on the farm though, he's scored at nearly a point per game since 2013-14.
Apr 12 - 9:17 PM

Brett Ritchie (lower body) won't play in the last two games of the regular season.

He has missed five games with a lower-body injury suffered a setback this week, which will result in him being re-evaluated again prior to the playoffs.
Apr 4 - 1:41 PM

Brett Ritchie (lower body) won't join the Dallas Stars on their upcoming road trip.

Ritchie will consequently miss the Stars' games in Los Angeles and Anaheim on Saturday and Sunday respectively. He has an assist in eight games this season.
