Former Bruins Gets Let Go From His PTO

The St. Louis Blues made some roster adjustments last Friday, reducing their training camp roster to 43 players, including former Boston Bruin, Nick Ritchie.

Ritchie, aged 27, came to camp as an invitee on a professional tryout (PTO) but didn't quite make the cut. The Blues initially saw potential for him to strengthen their bottom six, but he couldn't leave a strong enough impression to secure a spot. His inclusion might have limited opportunities for other deserving players.

Nick Ritchie has had a journey through multiple teams, with his most recent stint split between the Arizona Coyotes and the Calgary Flames, where he recorded 26 points (13 goals and 13 assists) in 74 games. His trade to Calgary in exchange for his brother, Brett Ritchie, made headlines for the sibling swap.

Hailing from Orangeville, Ontario, Ritchie was a first-round pick (10th overall) by the Anaheim Ducks in 2014. Over eight seasons and with a few team changes, including stops with the Ducks, Boston Bruins, Toronto Maple Leafs, Coyotes, and Flames, he's accumulated 186 points (84 goals and 102 assists) in 481 games.
