Guildford Flames have added 25-year-old forward Evan Ritt to their 2018/19 roster.

The Colorado native spent last season with French side Gap, scoring 11 goals and 16 points in 36 Ligue Magnus games.

Prior to his move to Europe, Ritt spent three years at the University of Denver, with Flames Head Coach Paul Dixon excited by his side’s newest addition:

“Evan was really keen to join us, and we are thrilled to have him commit to us. He can play the game at pace which is really important to us, and he looks to be a really good fit in helping us improve on the overall quality of our forward group.

“Last year we had a great group of guys come together in the dressing room, and I have no doubt in speaking to Evan that he will slot beautifully into that dynamic.

“Last year was his first year in pro hockey and he did very well with a good side in France, and we are looking forward to what he can do with us with that experience now under his belt.”
