  • Coyotes' Nick Ritchie: Manages assist Thursday

    Ritchie posted an assist, four shots on goal and five hits in Thursday's 5-3 loss to the Senators.

The helper ended Ritchie's three-game point drought. The 27-year-old winger is up to 18 points, 59 shots on net, 106 hits, 28 PIM and a minus-6 rating through 38 appearances. Half of his points have come on the power play, though his usage with the man advantage has fluctuated a bit recently.

  • Coyotes' Nick Ritchie: Suffers apparent wrist injury

    Ritchie exited Saturday's loss to Tampa Bay with an apparent wrist injury, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports.

    Ritchie has an assist in each of the last three games and four of his last five outings. The winger has gone nine contests without a goal, but he's still finding ways to contribute with offense and physical play. The 27-year-old is up to seven goals, nine assists, 48 shots on net, 86 hits, 26 PIM and a minus-6 rating through 32 appearances.

  • Coyotes' Nick Ritchie: Offers another power-play assist

    Ritchie logged a power-play assist, two shots on goal and nine hits in Thursday's 6-3 win over the Maple Leafs.

    Ritchie set up a Jakob Chychrun tally in the second period. The 27-year-old Ritchie has three helpers in his last four games, and two of them have come on the power play. The nine hits were easily a season high, giving him 82 hits, 15 points (nine on the power play), 44 shots on net, 26 PIM and a minus-8 rating through 31 appearances.

  • Coyotes' Nick Ritchie: Slides assist

    Ritchie provided an assist, two blocked shots and two PIM in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Golden Knights.

    Ritchie snapped a four-game point drought with the helper, as offense continues to be hard to come by in a bottom-six role. He helped out on a Juuso Valimaki tally in the second period. For the season, Ritchie's at seven goals, six helpers, seven power-play points, 37 shots on net, 66 hits, 24 PIM and a minus-7 rating in 28 contests. The Coyotes only have 11 healthy forwards on their roster currently, so Ritchie shouldn't have any trouble staying in the lineup until reinforcements arrive.

  • Coyotes' Nick Ritchie: One of each Sunday

    Ritchie scored a goal on three shots, dished a power-play assist and added two hits in Sunday's 5-4 overtime win over the Flyers.

    Ritchie recently sat out three games as a scratch amid a slump in his play. This was his second game back, and it likely bought him more time in the lineup. The winger's last multi-point effort was his two-goal game against the Capitals on Nov. 5. For the season, the 27-year-old has seven tallies, 12 points (seven on the power play), 30 shots on net, 53 hits, 20 PIM and a minus-7 rating in 23 appearances. He'll likely be confined to a bottom-six role with power-play time unless he heats up.

  • Coyotes' Nick Ritchie: Provides helper Monday

    Ritchie logged an assist and four hits in Monday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Predators.

    Ritchie's picked up two assists in the last three games, though those have been over a span of eight days due to the Coyotes' light schedule of late. The winger saw a season-low 10:45 of ice time in this contest, and he's been in the bottom six lately, though a role on the top power-play unit has kept him useful for fantasy purposes. Ritchie has 10 points (six on the power play), 23 shots on net, 38 hits, 16 PIM and a minus-6 rating in 17 appearances.

  • Coyotes' Nick Ritchie: Garners power-play assist

    Ritchie logged a power-play assist, three shots on goal, two PIM and two hits in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Rangers.

    Ritchie ended his season-worst three-game point drought by helping out on a Clayton Keller goal. Through 15 contests, Ritchie has been a pleasant surprise for the Coyotes, earning nine points (six on the power play). He's added some grit in a middle-six role with 32 hits and 16 PIM, though he also has a minus-7 rating since the team often gets outscored.

  • Coyotes' Nick Ritchie: Leads Coyotes in comeback win

    Ritchie scored a pair of goals in Arizona's 3-2 win against Washington on Saturday.

    Washington had a 2-0 lead in the third period before the Coyotes battled back. Ritchie played a huge part in the comeback, scoring the tying and winning goals. The latter came at 19:24 of the third period. This was his third multi-point game of 2022-23, but outside of those contests, Ritchie hasn't contributed much offensively. He's up to six goals and eight points in 11 games this season.

  • Coyotes' Nick Ritchie: Lights lamp on power play

    Ritchie scored a power-play goal and added two hits in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Panthers.

    All four of Ritchie's goals this season have come on the power play, though he hadn't scored in his five contests. The 26-year-old winger has added a pair of assists, 12 shots on net, 19 hits, 10 PIM and a minus-6 rating in nine games. He began the year in a top-six role, but he's slipped back to a more familiar bottom-six spot since his early-season surge ended.

  • Coyotes' Nick Ritchie: Distributes helper in win

    Ritchie recorded an assist and two hits in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Blue Jackets.

    Ritchie set up a Zack Kassian goal in the first period. After recording no points in the previous two games, Ritchie was bumped down to a bottom-six assignment Tuesday. His helper was his first even-strength point of the year. He's at three goals, two assists, 10 shots on net, 12 hits, 10 PIM and a minus-5 rating through six contests, but his fantasy value will be directly correlated to his success on the power play, which has been a surprising strength for the Coyotes early on.

  • Coyotes' Nick Ritchie: Two-point effort Monday

    Ritchie scored a goal and an assist, both on the power play, in Monday's 4-2 win over the Maple Leafs.

    The 26-year-old lasted less than a season with Toronto before he was dealt to Arizona in February, but Ritchie returned for some revenge early in the new campaign. He's off to a hot start for the Coyotes with three goals and four points through three games, and all of his production has come with the man advantage. Ritchie's never scored more than 15 goals and 31 points in an NHL season, but if he keeps his spot on the first power-play unit, his current fantasy value may not be a mirage.

  • Coyotes' Nick Ritchie: Nets Coyotes' first two goals

    Ritchie on Thursday scored both of the Coyotes' goals during a 6-2 loss to the Penguins.

    Ritchie, who is attempting to settle in with the Coyotes, scored twice Thursday and produced three shots on goal. He just couldn't do it all. The 2014 first-round draft pick joined the Coyotes midway through last season and collected 10 goals in 24 games. Ritchie is expected to lead the Coyotes through the rebuilding season. Down 3-0 and outshot 29-11 midway through the second period Thursday, the Coyotes captured the momentum and generated seven consecutive shots, capped by Ritchie's first goal of the season.

  • Coyotes' Nick Ritchie: Makes preseason debut

    Ritchie (upper body) played in Saturday's preseason game versus the Blues.

    Ritchie ended last season with an upper-body injury, but he was back in action Saturday. The 26-year-old winger figures to play a middle-six role for the Coyotes in 2022-23, though his physical playing style has often caused him to sit out with injuries throughout his career.

  • Coyotes' Nick Ritchie: Finishes season sidelined

    Ritchie (upper body) missed the last six games of the season.

    Ritchie's roller-coaster year began in Toronto, where he posted just nine points in 33 contests in a limited role. He bounced to and from the Maple Leafs' AHL affiliate before he was traded to the Coyotes in February. The results were much better with his new team -- 10 goals and four assists in 24 games -- as he saw top-six minutes before suffering the injury. The 26-year-old winger is likely not as bad as he was in Toronto nor as good as the early returns in Arizona would indicate. He's under contract for another season and could see a noticeable role with the Coyotes again as they continue through their rebuild, though any prolonged slump could see him sit out in favor of younger prospects.
