Player Notes

  • Ducks sign Nick Ritchie to 3-year deal
    The Anaheim Ducks have signed Nick Ritchie to a three-year contract.

    Advice: The deal is worth a total of $4.599 million, according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman (that's an AAV of $1.533 million. Finally, this contract dispute is over. Ritchie held out of training camp and the start of the regular season because the two sides couldn't come to terms on a new contract. This was always going to be a difficult negotiation for the 22-year-old because he simply didn't have any leverage. Ritchie had 10 goals and 27 points in 76 games last season. He has a lot to prove this season. Rotoworld.com 50 minutes ago
    Day-to-Day
  • Capitals sink Lundqvist, NYR in overtime
    Henrik Lundqvist stopped 34 of 38 shots in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Washington Capitals.

    Advice: It was far from a perfect night for Lundqivst. He gave up a soft power play goal to Alex Ovechkin early in the second frame, and he failed to control a rebound on Matt Niskanen's winner in the extra frame. Lundqvist now has a 2-3-1 record with a 2.31 goals-against-average and a .930 save percentage this season. It's the first time all year that he's allowed more than two goals in a start. Lundqvist is more of a number two goalie in most fantasy leagues at this point. He's no longer the elite goaltender he once was. Rotoworld.com 53 minutes ago
