Brett Ritchie (born on July 1, 1993) is a Canadian ice hockey player who currently plays for the Dallas Stars in the National Hockey League (NHL).

He played his junior hockey with the Niagara IceDogs of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL).

Playing CareerEdit

JuniorEdit

In the 2009–10 season, Brett scored 13 goals and 16 assists in 65 games during his first season in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL).

During his second season, he missed approximately a month of the season due to mononucleosis, but despite playing just 49 games, his scoring improved to 21 goals and 20 assists during the 2010–11 season.

Unfortunately, due to his illness during the mid-season, he missed his opportunity to play in the 2011 CHL Top Prospects Game.

On January 5, 2012, Brett was traded to the Niagara Icedogs for Guelph's 2012 2nd round pick, Peterborough's 2014 2nd round pick, and Niagara's own 2013 2nd and 5th round picks; all of which Sarnia immediately traded to Mississauga to acquire goalie JP Anderson.

ProfessionalEdit

On July 11, 2012, Brett signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Dallas Stars.

He began his professional career April 5, 2013 with the Texas Stars against the Oklahoma City Barons where he scored his first professional goal.

He achieved a hat trick after scoring his third goal of the night on an empty net in the Texas Star's game against the Charlotte Checkers on December 27, 2014.
