RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Brett Ritchie.
Ritchie posted 22 goals and 26 assists over 68 games for AHL Texas last season, adding another seven goals and four assists through 13 playoff games. He's only 21 and already making his mark. Don't be surprised if the power winger gets called up to the NHL for a game or two this year, but it's unlikely that he'll make an extended appearance in Dallas.
Ritchie had a stellar final season in the OHL, scoring 41 goals (sixth in the league) and adding 35 assists in 53 games, despite missing 15 games. And included in that was a stretch where he scored and impressive 26 goals in 20 games. He made his professional debut following the OHL campaign and quickly notched three goals in five games with the Texas Stars (AHL). He is expected to begin 2012-13 in the AHL and combines with Alex Chiasson and Valeri Nichushkin to give Dallas some great young scoring depth at right wing.
Ritchie continues to show a solid scoring touch in his minor league career and finds himself among the second tier of a deep group of RW prospects for Dallas.
