The St. Louis Blues signed forward Nick Ritchie to a professional tryout, the team announced Thursday.

Ritchie split the 2022-23 season with the Arizona Coyotes and Calgary Flames, amassing 13 goals and 26 points in 74 outings. His best statistical season came in 2018-19 when he collected 31 points in 60 games with the Anaheim Ducks.

The Ducks selected him with the 10th overall pick in the 2014 NHL Draft. Ritchie spent the first five seasons of his career in Anaheim, but he's moved around quite a bit in recent years and suited up for four different teams - the Boston Bruins, Toronto Maple Leafs, Coyotes, and Flames - over the last three campaigns.

Ritchie and his older brother, Brett, were traded for each other at the deadline in March, with Nick heading to Calgary from the desert alongside defenseman Troy Stecher.

The 27-year-old has scored 84 goals and 186 points in 481 career NHL games.
