Calgary Flames

Fantasy Impact: The 26 year-old managed a career high 27 wins in 2018-19, along with a .911 save percentage and 2.61 GAA in 45 games. Rittich split time last season with Mike Smith, and will have to hold off newly signed Cam Talbot this season. While he is far from a guarantee, Rittich will enter camp on top of the Flames goaltender depth-chart. If either goalie in Calgary is able to earn the bulk of the starts, there is definite wins potential on a strong team with a very good defense.

David Rittich surrendered three goals on 27 shots, but got his 17th win of the season on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Rittich has been having a great season in Calgary, but has given up at least three goals in five of his last six games. His overall numbers are still going to allow him to get regular starts, but fantasy owners would feel more comfortable starting him if he could break out of this mini slump.

Fantasy Impact: At this time, Rittich seems to be locked in as the Flames starting goaltender. His play would suggest he deserves it. If he falters, Mike Smith may earn another chance at regaining his grip on the starting role, until such time, keep rolling out Rittich on your fantasy roster.

 

David Rittich made 35 saves on 36 shots in the Calgary Flames 4-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday night.

Fantasy Impact: It seems as though David Rittich currently has the inside track on the Flames starting job in goal. Rittich and Mike Smith have battled back and forth for the starters job all season long, and while Rittich has clearly been the better option, expect Mike Smith to continue to get his fair share of starts. This battle may go on all year, but if you can only roster one guy... roll the dice with Rittich.

Fantasy Impact: David Rittich came into the Flames last game in relief of Mike Smith. It is unknown whether Smith was pulled or left due to injury, but either way Rittich is going to get his chance to stake his claim on the Flames net once again. Keep an eye on the situation going forward as it seems as though the Flames will ride the hot hand in goal as the season moves along.

 

David Rittich stopped 24 of 26 goals for a 4-2 win over the Oilers on Saturday night. The win brings Rittich's season record to 6-1.

Fantasy Impact: David Rittich has successfully wrangled the starting goalie job away from Mike Smith this season. The 26-year old Czech netminder has put up some impressive numbers so far this year with a 6-1 record, 1.92 GAA, and a .933 save percentage. Rittich should hold down the starting netminder duties at least until he falters. Rittich should be started in all fantasy formats at this point.
