Ryder Ritchie's Player Profile

Rachel Doerrie - ESPN - April 2nd: "While his point totals didn't develop at the speed of others, Ritchie is a high-ceiling player whose playmaking and skating give him an intriguing offensive toolkit. He will need time to develop, but with the right steps, there is legitimate reason to believe he can be a top-six winger at the NHL level."

Scott Wheeler - The Athletic - March 25th: "He can play at multiple paces and adjust his tempo between them. He protects extremely well and will commonly shake past or around opposing players, building speed through his crossovers to hang onto the puck inside the offensive zone until a play presents itself."

Sam Cosentino - Sportsnet - March 13th: "After missing more than two months, hes starting to find his stride just in time to leave a lasting impression with scouts. He still has a chance to impress with perhaps some WHL playoffs and potentially some time with Canada at the U18s."

Corey Pronman - The Athletic - March 12th: "His effort is fine but his consistency could be better. I also don't think he's a dynamic playmaking winger but instead a very good one. He could be a middle-six wing."

Steven Ellis - Daily Faceoff - March 9th: "Hes not big, but hes skilled, and he can reach a high top speed that makes him difficult to contain. I wish he were more consistent, though."

Peter Baracchini - The Hockey Writers - March 7th: "What makes him successful is that he uses his skating and puck control to his advantage. When you give him the space to work with, he will make you pay for it."

Mike Morreale - NHL.com - March 1st: "Ritchie (6-0, 175) is highly competitive with good hands, quick acceleration, a big shot and keen vision with the puck on his stick."

Jason Bukala - Sportsnet - February 27th: "He isnt the biggest body, but he plays hard between the whistles and has a bit of a throwback style of game. Hes a mix of skill and will whos responsible on and off the puck."
