Nick and Brett Ritchie swap sides in NHL’s first brother-for-brother trade
Brett Ritchie and Scratch Ritchie were seen as under two years withdrawn in Orangeville, Ontario. They’ve been together in the NHL for a few seasons.
After a short time, they’re connected perpetually in hockey history.
The Arizona Coyotes traded Scratch Ritchie and defenseman Troy Stecher to the Calgary Flares not long on time Friday for Brett Ritchie and unpretentious player Connor Mackey. As demonstrated by NHL subtleties, it’s the key family-for-family trade coalition history.
I think it got poured out, so they were laughing when I called them, Effects senior boss Brad Treliving said. It’s uncommon. Due to nothing else, we’re significant. It just worked out that way.
Calgary is expecting to move into a season finisher spot by adding Stetcher and Ritchie, the last choice of whom has 21 obsessions in 53 games this season.
Scratch Ritchie, 27, picked 10th by and large pick by the Anaheim Ducks in the 2014 NHL draft, has nine targets and 12 associates in 58 games this season.
More settled family Brett, 29, a following-round pick of the Dallas Stars in the 2011 draft, has six targets, and two helpers in 34 games.
