David Rittich signs extension with the Flames

David Rittich has signed a two-year, $5.5 million contract extension with the 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 earns win on Friday vs. Panthers

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.

David Rittich to make fourth straight start

David Rittich is expected to make his fourth consecutive start for the Calgary Flames when they take on the Florida Panthers on Friday night.

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 outstanding in Flames win

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.

David Rittich expected to start on Saturday

David Rittich is expected to start in goal for the Calgary Flames when they take on the Minnesota Wild on Saturday.

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.
