Nick Ritchie (born Nicholas Ritchie (born December 5, 1995) is a Canadian professional ice hockey forward currently playing with the Anaheim Ducks in the National Hockey League (NHL).

He was selected by the Ducks in the first round (10th overall) of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing CareerEdit

Nick was a top rated prospect who was ranked #7 on the NHL Central Scouting Bureau final list of 2014 NHL Draft eligible North American skaters.

During the 2012–13 season, he played with the Canada men's national under-18 ice hockey team to win gold medals at both the 2012 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament and the 2013 IIHF World U18 Championships.

On August 2, 2014, the Ducks announced that they had signed Nick to a three-year entry level contract.

On January 7, 2015, he was traded by the Peterborough Petes to the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds (along with teammate Connor Boland) in exchange for Kyle Jenkins and four draft picks.

On April 6, 2017, Nick was suspended for two games (one regular season & one playoff game) after punching Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Michal Rozsival in the face as retaliation for a cross-check that Rozsival delivered to his teammate Corey Perry.
