Getting called up is great. But will he play games?

Great! I was hoping he would get called up. At the very least he earns some NHL dough, while getting the opportunity to skate/practice with NHLers.

Wouldn’t mind Pelletier getting a similar opportunity as the season progresses.

Getting paid more either way. So good for him.

Is Ritchie healthy or with Duehr back down did they have just 12 forwards?

I hope he draws in to the lineup. I would expect him to bring a little more offense to the 4th line than Richardson and I love the size on that line. Good luck young man.

With Duehr down and Ritchie hurt, they only had 12 healthy forwards.

Because they're carrying two extra d-men, they only have the roster space for 13 forwards.

Richardson has been perfectly fine this year.

If he does get in the lineup he should play like Adam Luczicka and just pound every opposing jersey he sees.

I agree, no complaints. I just think Ruzicka might have a little more upside offensively, and he's big. I think that his skill set could potentially play really well with Lucic and Lewis.

I can't see Sutter taking any of Lewi, Lucic or Richardson out for Saturday after praising them after the Chicago win.

Guessing Ruzicka is munching pop corn.

Only way would be if Richardson missing practice is more than just "Maintenance"

Richardson hasn't played a ton after being hurt in pre-season / to start the year. And they just had a day off. So it just being maintenance today is a bit weird to me and calling up another center to me feels like there might be more of an injury there.

Lucic would be a good mentor for him. He has a reasonable amount of skill, but not enough skill alone to become a top line player. Lucic proved that hard work and drive can get you a long way.

I personally think Ruzicka has what it takes, hopefully he shows it.
