In line with Brett Ritchie's trajectory, Nick Ritchie has commenced a hockey venture in Europe. Both Ritchie siblings are presently active in European leagues, with Nick recently finalizing a one-year contract with Karpat in Finland's Liiga, according to Chris Johnston from The Athletic.

Previously selected as the 10th overall pick in the 2014 draft, Nick Ritchie displayed his abilities in 74 games last season, splitting time between the Arizona Coyotes and the Calgary Flames. His noteworthy performance comprised 13 goals, 26 points, and an impressive 218 hits. Despite a promising trial period with the St. Louis Blues, where he engaged in fisticuffs, Ritchie's NHL ambitions were constrained due to concerns about his foot speed.
Initially drafted by the Anaheim Ducks, Ritchie spent portions of five seasons with the team before stints with the Boston Bruins, Toronto Maple Leafs, and aforementioned appearances with the Arizona Coyotes and Calgary Flames.
Having amassed 481 NHL games, tallying 84 goals and 186 points, the 27-year-old, 6-foot-3 winger is striving to regain the attention of NHL scouts by performing well overseas. With an earnings record of nearly $12 million in his career thus far, Ritchie aims to make an impression in European hockey before potentially rejoining the National League next summer.
