  • Jets' David Rittich: Hangs on for sixth win

  • Jets' David Rittich: On wrong side of history

    Rittich made 23 saves in a 4-1 loss to the Capitals on Friday. He allowed three goals.

    He will go down in history as the guy that allowed the goal that tied Gordie Howe's all-time goal record -- Alex Ovechkin wired a shot from the top of the right circle that found the five hole late in the first period for his 801st NHL goal. The Jets are scuffling a little with three losses in their last four games. Rittich is 1-2-0 in those four games.

  • Jets' David Rittich: Fills in, earns win

    Rittich made 35 saves during a 5-1 victory over the visiting Senators on Tuesday.

    Rittich, who drew the nod with Connor Hellebuyck suffering from a non-COVID illness, earned consecutive starts for the first time this season. Coming off a 31-save loss to the Kraken on Sunday, Rittich rebounded to help the Jets secure their third win in four outings. With the Jets facing back-to-back road games against the Bruins on Thursday and Capitals on Friday, Rittich (5-3-0) could get additional work over emergency backup Arvid Holm if Hellebuyck is unable to dress.

  • Jets' David Rittich: Starting versus Senators

    Rittich will patrol the home crease Tuesday against Ottawa, Ken Wiebe of Sportsnet reports.

    Rittich is coming off a 31-save effort in Sunday's 3-2 loss to Seattle. He will get a second consecutive start because Connor Hellebuyck (illness) is unavailable. As a result, Arvid Holm will suit up as the backup goalie Tuesday. Rittich has a 4-3-0 record this season with a 2.77 GAA and an .896 save percentage. Ottawa is tied for 17th in the league with 3.13 goals per game this season.

  • Jets' David Rittich: Lead slips away in third period

    Rittich surrendered three goals on 34 shots in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Kraken.

    Rittich had a 2-1 lead to protect going into the third period, but Ryan Donato's deflected goal 16 seconds into the frame evened the score. Jared McCann added a goal with 4:32 left, and that sent Rittich to his third loss of the year. The 30-year-old is at 4-3-0 with a 2.77 GAA and an .896 save percentage in seven appearances as the infrequently-used backup to Connor Hellebuyck. The Jets are back home for a game versus the Senators on Tuesday, though they head into the holiday break with a road back-to-back versus the Bruins and the Capitals, so Rittich may not have to wait too long for his next start.

    Rittich made 22 saves during Friday's 3-1 victory over the host Blackhawks.

  • Jets' David Rittich: Tending twine Friday

    Rittich will get the starting nod in Chicago on Friday, Mitchell Clinton of the Jets' official site reports.

    Rittich yielded four goals on 26 shots in a loss against Columbus on Dec. 2. The 30-year-old is now 3-2-0 with a pedestrian 3.07 GAA and .881 save percentage. He'll continue to get little work as Connor Hellebuyck's primary backup.

  • Jets' David Rittich: Starting Friday

He is 3-1-0 with a 2.77 GAA and an .890 save percentage in his first season with the Jets. He will face the Blue Jackets, who have scored only 60 goals in 21 games this season.

  • Jets' David Rittich: Struggles versus Columbus

    Rittich gave up four goals on 26 shots in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Blue Jackets.

    Rittich gave up a pair of goals in each of the first two periods, and the Jets never bounced back. He had won his last three starts and is now at 3-2-0 with 15 goals allowed on 26 shots this season. With Connor Hellebuyck playing well as the primary goalie, Rittich's chances to play are likely to remain infrequent.

  • Jets' David Rittich: Slated to play against Canes

    Rittich is set to defend the cage at home versus Carolina on Monday, Mark Masters of TSN.ca reports.

    Rittich will be making just his fourth appearance in the crease this season and figures to be one of the least utilized backups in the NHL this year. The 30-year-old netminder's lack of starts isn't due to his performance but rather Connor Hellebuyck being a workhorse goalie that wants to play as much as possible.

  • Jets' David Rittich: Starting in Seattle

    Rittich will get the starting nod in Seattle on Sunday, Mike McIntyre of the Winnipeg Free Press reports.

    Rittich will make his third appearance of the year for Winnipeg. He's allowed six goals on 52 shots in two outings so far, going 1-1-0 in the process. Rittich has yet to make a start at home this season. He posted an .898 save percentage on the road during the 2021-22 campaign.

  • Jets' David Rittich: Picks up overtime win

    Rittich allowed two goals on 21 shots in Sunday's 3-2 overtime win over the Kraken.

    Rittich didn't get to play with a lead in the contest. The Jets bounced back from a couple of one-goal deficits and Mark Scheifele sealed the win 54 seconds into overtime. Rittich is now 2-1-0 with eight goals allowed in his three appearances so far. Connor Hellebuyck has been excellent as the Jets' primary goalie, so Rittich will likely be confined to a backup role with infrequent playing time.
