Nolan
Ritchie

A super-savvy pivot who is capable of plenty of offensive production. Does need to work harder to stay involved in plays due to his skating stride and limited glide. Opts for the linear stride when it comes to his skating, which makes him trackable. Works to get on the right side of pucks and jumps…

Top-10 prospects of the month – March 2021

A super-savvy pivot who is capable of plenty of offensive production. Does need to work harder to stay involved in plays due to his skating stride and limited glide. Opts for the linear stride when it comes to his skating, which makes him trackable. Works to get on the right side of pucks and jumps at opportunities to eliminate lanes. Strong support player if not immediately in the fray. Has adjusted his game from a dynamic threat to high IQ player, and boasts plenty of on-ice intelligence. Mastered passing into high-danger areas, but also isolates opponents by using deceptive body language and working towards the advantage. Prefers crisper or hook passes than saucer passes. Has good touch on puck, showing soft catch and release ability. Never panics and often chooses the right pass to get the job done. Owns an accurate and well-timed wrist shot.  Lacks strength on pucks, despite having a lower centre of gravity. Avoids getting physical along the boards and doesn’t seem to get aggressive on the puck. Can function a step in advance of the play. Needs to work into open zones so he can get off an accurate shot. Gets plenty of power-play time, but limited with his defensive assignments. However, lacks grit and a booming one-timer. Has come into his own with the Brandon Wheat Kings roster and could be an attractive project.
