The Boston Bruins announced their restricted free agent transactions, and there was one notable player left off.
Ondrej Kase and Robert Lantosi also were not given a qualifying offer.
The Bruins did, however, sign defenseman Nick Wolff to a one-year, two-way deal with a cap hit of $750,000.
Ritchie and Kase now will become unrestricted free agents. The Bruins, of course, still can sign either one to a cheaper contract, but the B’s do free up a little bit of cap space with the start off free agency on the horizon.
