The Fourth Period’s David Pagnotta, following an Eric Francis report from a few days ago, is reporting that Brett Ritchie has signed a one-year deal with the Flames that should be announced shortly. Besides perhaps Ritchie’s inclusion, no real surprises here, either. Parker Bell was invited to Penticton but could not participate, which made Cooper Walker a late camp invite.
