"He did his physicals and fitness [tests], and passed with flying colors," general manager Bob Murray said. "Now it's a matter of immigration. He'll need a few days with the team anyways. ... He will be [practicing] tomorrow."

Anaheim selected Ritchie with the No. 10 pick in the 2014 NHL Draft, and he has 59 points (26 goals, 33 assists) in 186 NHL games and four goals in 19 playoff games.
