2018 Fantasy Outlook
Heading into the 2018-19 season, Rittich has a strong chance to win the backup job as the primary backup to Mike Smith in Calgary. While American prospect Jon Gillies figures to compete with Rittich for the No. 2 spot, the Czech-born netminder does have a slight leg up, possessing more NHL experience than his main competitor. A stocky goalie who takes up a lot of real estate in the cage at 6-foot-3, 202 pounds, Rittich appeared in 21 games with the Flames last season, recording a 2.92 GAA and .904 save percentage before an arbiter awarded him a one-year, $800,000 deal this offseason. Whether Rittich spends more of his time with the NHL or AHL team, he's unlikely to get enough starts to warrant much fantasy attention, especially if Mike Smith stays healthy. Read Past Outlooks

Rittich surrendered six goals on 27 shots in a 6-3 loss to the Lightning on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
Rittich has now given up 11 goals in his last three starts. His record drops to 20-5-5, with a 2.66 GAA and a .911 save percentage. Don't be surprised if coach Bill Peters turns to Mike Smith against the Panthers on Thursday night.
