Calum Ritchie's Player Profile

Tony Ferrari - The Hockey News - Dec. 19th: "Ritchie has shown evasive puck skill and a high-end shot in spurts, and his playmaking stems from intelligence, but he just hasnt been able to find the scoresheet as much as hed like. A big second half of the season could do him wonders."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Dec. 14th: "Fascinating prospect who will be better for having an old-school, hard-nosed coach in Derek Laxdal who spent the past three years on an NHL bench."

Jordan Malette - Smaht Scouting - Nov. 25th: "Calum Ritchie offers value in all three zones, mainly through proper positioning that allows him to provide strong puck-side support, especially in the defensive end. Calum is typically the puck transporter through the middle of the ice navigating through pressure and entering the zone with control."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - Nov. 15th: "Hes 6-foot-2, a strong skater, and has a lot of skill and playmaking ability. He has the puck-on-a-string type of hands and can make tough plays at fast speeds. Ritchie is a very good passer who hits seams consistently."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - Nov. 1st: "Hes got quick hick hands (hes lethal on breakaways/in the shootout), a cleverness to his game as a passer (whether through seams or often blind), slick skill in traffic sliding pucks under sticks and rotating through coverage or past checks, and a knack for finessing pucks into spots for himself or his linemates to skate onto."

Sebastian High - Dobber Prospects - Oct. 20th: "He plays with a high motor which, along with his excellent edgework, compensates for his unrefined stride mechanics. He doesnt shy away from physical contact, attacks the slot consistently, and creatively shifts the angles of attack to create dangerous opportunities for himself or his teammates."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - Oct. 19th: "Plays a pro style game all over the ice. Even on nights where you dont think hes been effective, check the score sheet. "

Steven - Daily FaceOff - Oct. 3rd: "Ritchie started the season by winning gold and leading the Hlinka Gretzky Cup in scoring. Ritchie made the OHL all-rookie team with Oshawa last year and should take his game to another level this year."

Peter Baracchini - The Hockey Writers - Sept. 27th: "Ritchie has the whole package of a player that you would want in a centreman. He has the size, speed, hands, smarts and skill to be effective on both sides of the puck in any situation."

Bob McKenzie - TSN - Sept. 22nd: "The Oshawa Generals centre has the size, skating and skill combination that project him to have a good chance to be a high-end No. 2 NHL centre and the upside to be a lower-case No. 1 pivot in the NHL."
