2018 Fantasy Outlook
A 6-foot-2, 234-pound frame gave Ritchie the confidence to lead the Ducks in hits for two straight seasons, dishing out 247 and 221, respectively. His size can hold him back in the speed department, but the Ontario native makes up for it with astute positioning and puck-handling, registering 24 goals and 31 helpers over the last two years. Ritchie accomplished this while logging bottom-six minutes, but the 22-year-old will battle Andrew Cogliano for the second-line left-wing spot this year. How Ritchie would respond to facing opponents' top defenders nightly is a reason for concern, and the return of Patrick Eaves (illness) could complicate things. Ritchie's undetermined role on the team is enough concern for fantasy owners to take a wait-and-see approach. Read Past Outlooks

Hit with fine
LWAnaheim Ducks
March 9, 2019
Ritchie has been assessed a maximum fine of $4,121.86 for crosschecking Christian Folin of the Canadiens in Friday's game.
ANALYSIS
Ritchie has avoided a suspension, which frankly is what matters the most to those depending on him in fantasy circles. The fourth-year winger will look to extend his point streak to three games in Sunday's home clash with the Kings.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2014
Ritchie’s 2016-17 results need to be viewed with the proper lens. Yes, his 28 points (14 goals, 14 assists) in 77 games look pedestrian at first glance, but the 6-foot-2, 232-pound power winger hit that value despite averaging a tick below 13 minutes per contest. Moreover, he has the attention of team brass having buried four goals -- including a pair of game-winners -- on last season’s playoff stage. Ritchie effectively uses his size to his advantage, and it results in steady production across the board. Entering his third season, Ritchie is the type of player you’ll likely want to pounce on before he becomes a household name in fantasy circles.
Ritchie, the 10th overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, is a big, nasty, skilled winger who is like a dog after a bone -- he never, ever gives up in his pursuit of the puck. And he’ll go through a wall to get it. He hits, he scores and he scares the snot out of opposing defenders just like Milan Lucic does. And it’s that combination that has scouts salivating. He has struggled through injuries in junior. And his weight is a bit of an issue (230 pounds). But he’s a potential multi-category fantasy stud...as long as he’s more Lucic than Nathan Horton.
