Report: Leafs signing winger Nick Ritchie to a two-year deal

Rumors have been swirling around the Leafs and Nick Ritchie since before free agency even opened and it appears there was some traction there. On Saturday morning, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reported that the Leafs have come to terms with Ritchie on a two-year contract that will carry an AAV of $2.5 million.

Hearing Nick Ritchie to TOR. Sounds like 2x$2.5M
— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) July 31, 2021

Ritchie, 25, was drafted 10th overall by the Anaheim Ducks in the 2014 NHL Draft and played 287 regular season games for the organization across five seasons before being traded to the Boston Bruins in February of 2020. He played all 56 games for Boston in the abbreviated 2020-21 season, recording a career-high 15 goals while adding 11 assists.

The big-bodied winger will add some secondary scoring to Toronto’s forward group, as well as a physical edge. His 102 hits in 2020-21 would have led the Leafs forward group by a mile as the departed Zach Hyman led last year with just 69 hits. Ritchie isn’t shy about dropping the gloves either, having already done so nine times in his young career, including three bouts last season.
