Shawn Horcoff was ill this morning and was doubtful for tonight's game against the Coyotes. Dallas coach Lindy Ruff said "another player" was also iffy with injury. Looks like they decided to pull the trigger on Ritchie to compensate.
Ritchie skated a full practice this morning for Texas.
In an unrelated move, the Texas Stars returned goalie Henrik Kiviaho to the Idaho Steelheads. Kiviaho backed up Jussi Rynnas on Sunday.
