Calgary Flames

NHL CapHit: $2,750,000 Puckpedia Profile

The Flames have re-signed David Rittich to a two-year extension worth $5.5M ($2.75M AAV).

Rittich played very well for stretches of the 2019 season, going 27-9-5 with a 2.61 GAA and .911 SV% in 45 games with the Flames. However, when it came to the postseason, the Flames leaned on Mike Smith and were ultimately bounced in the first-round. Coming into 2020, Rittich will be battling with Cam Talbot for the No.1 job and the 26-year-old probably has the early edge to win the spot.
