Nick Ritchie's Player ProfileFebruary 2014 - Nick Ritchie was named the Ontario Hockey League's Player of the Week (ending February 9th) after the big power forward muscled his way to six goals and eight points in four games. Ritchie's highlight performance was when he racked up five goals and six points factoring in on every Peterborough Petes goal in a 7-6 shootout loss to the Kingston Frontenacs on Friday, February 7th. His outstanding individual performance set a new personal career high for points (6) and his five goals established a new franchise record for the Peterborough Petes, a milestone that lasted since 1983. Ironically, Nick Ritchie's five-goal game was the first by a player since his older brother (Brett) tallied five versus the Niagara IceDogs on November 4th, 2012.
November 2013 - After returning from being sidelined for four games, Nick Ritchie fired off four goals and six points in a three-game span to return with a vengeance. The big winger has battled staying healthy early in his young career but few players are as dominating as Ritchie when he's playing a full health. Ritchie remains a potential top 10 prospect for the 2014 NHL Entry Draft and currently leads Peterborough in scoring with 18 points through 16 contests, including a team high 10 goals.
