The heat is rising for Josh Ritchart
Returning to the Flames for his 2nd season after a season ending injury in 2018, Josh was a high priority signing coming into 2019, and you can see why. Due to our depth, and us easing him back in after the injury, he’s only playing 27.8 minutes a game currently, yet still averaging 20.7ppg, and going at 69.4% from inside the 3pt line. His 3pt shot has eluded him so far, but even then we’ve seen signs of it starting to come back with his 4/5 night against the Senators last week.
His best game in April came against a massive rival in the Joondalup Wolves, on the road, where he logged 35 minutes, and had 26 points and 5 blocked shots in the 6 point win. Once he gets back to full fitness, we’d expect his 3pt shot to come back and his overall numbers to continue to increase.
