Calum Ritchie is the 17th-ranked North American skater in the NHL Central Scouting mid-season rankings ahead of the 2023 draft. The jury’s out on the 6-foot-3 center for the OHL’s Oshawa Generals, with him being ranked as high as a top-10 pick in some lists and a late first-rounder in others.
Ritchie has 42 points in 42 games this season, good for third among 2023 NHL draft-eligible players in the OHL, behind Colby Barlow and Quentin Musty. However, Oshawa ranks third-last in the league and is rebuilding, adding more weight to Ritchie’s shoulders.
Despite a slow stretch earlier in the season, he’s picked up as of late with a six-game points streak and 14 points in his past 10 matches. How has this helped his draft stock? Tony Ferrari and Brock Otten analyzed Ritchie’s game in the Jan. 25 episode of The Hockey News On The ‘O’ Podcast.
