Canucks' Richardson Nets Two Points In Win

News: Brad Richardson scored his eighth goal of the season and added an assist in Monday's blowout win against Phoenix.
Analysis: Brad Richardson snapped a four game cold-streak Monday, tallying his first goal since December 7th against Ottawa. Richardson can be hard for fantasy owners to trust due to his inconsistent, hot and cold nature. However, the third line center has 17 points in 33 games this season and is certainly worth rostering in most formats.

Canucks' Richardson Continues To Find Twine

News: Brad Richardson scored his seventh goal of the season in Sunday's loss to Ottawa.
Analysis: What has gotten into this guy? Brad Richardson is on fire right now, recording four goals and eight points in his last six games. The third-liner has 15 points in 28 games this season, putting him on pace for the first 20-goal, 40-point campaign of his NHL career. Considering the Canucks' scoring has been balanced this season, Richardson is worth a look in deeper leagues right now.

Canucks' Richardson Explodes For Three Points

News: Brad Richardson carried the Vancouver offense Thursday, scoring two goals -- one shorthanded -- and assisting on the other in a 3-0 win over Pittsburgh.
Analysis: Brad Richardson's been surprisingly productive of late, with six points over his last four games, and is easily on a career-best scoring pace with six goals and seven assists in 26 games so far this year. However, considering his history, a big breakout when all's said and done seems unlikely.

Canucks' Richardson Nets Two Points In WIn

News: Brad Richardson scored an empty-net goal and added a helper in Friday's win over Columbus.
Analysis: As Vancouver's third-line center, Brad Richardson has notched four goals and nine points in 23 games this season, to go with a minus-6 rating. While he isn't known as a big offensive producer, his 10-goal, 30-point potential make him worth a look in some very deep leagues.

Canucks' Richardson Suits Up Saturday

News: Brad Richardson (undisclosed) ended up skating 14:23 in Saturday's loss to the Kings.
Analysis: Brad Richardson was a game-time decision heading into the contest, but was cleared to play after making it through warmups with no setbacks. The center had a relatively quiet day with a minus-1 rating and one shot on goal, but the Canucks were probably just happy that he was healthy and available to suit up among their bottom-six forwards.

Canucks' Richardson A Game-Time Decision Saturday

News: Brad Richardson (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision Saturday against the Kings, Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province reports.
Analysis: Brad Richardson evidently suffered some sort of injury in Thursday's game, but it must not be too serious if he still has a shot at playing Saturday. The Canucks will likely evaluate him during pregame warmups before making a determination on his availability. Richardson has three goals and six points over 14 games on the campaign.

Canucks' Richardson Scores First Two

News: Brad Richardson potted his first two goals of the year Tuesday against Carolina, opening the scoring 1:32 into the first period and then putting home an empty-netter with 17 seconds remaining. He also went plus-2 with seven penalty minutes.
Analysis: Brad Richardson hadn't been rewarded on his 18 shots over eight games to start the season, but that all changed Tuesday. However, he doesn't tend to be a strong source of fantasy production, as he's a checking-liner who's never scored more than 27 points in a season, doesn't lay a lot of hits and doesn't block a lot of shots.

Canucks' Richards Plays Setup Man In Win

News: Brad Richardson dished out a pair of helpers in Wednesday's win over Calgary.
Analysis: Brad Richardson was also credited with three shots on goal and two PIM in the win. Although he has never posted more than 27 points in a season, Richardson will get chances to produce decent offensive totals this season alongside Linden Vey and Zack Kassian on the third line. Still, Richardson doesn't play on the power play and isn't known for his offensive production, making him unappealing in shallow fantasy formats.

Canucks' Richardson Out Saturday With Injury

News: Brad Richardson (undisclosed) will not play in Saturday's exhibition finale against the Oilers.
Analysis: Brad Richardson has been limited since taking a hard hit into the boards last week, but the Canucks haven't provided any indication he'll have to sit out the regular-season opener due to the injury. Still, Richardson's spot on the Canucks' roster isn't guaranteed, and missing the final exhibition game may prove detrimental to his chances of claiming a spot.

Richardson's Game-Winner Lifts Vancouver

News: Brad Richardson scored in the 59th minute to propel the Canucks over visiting Los Angeles on Saturday, 2-1. He fired a team-high six shots on goal.
Analysis: With 11 goals and 11 assists in 69 games, Brad Richardson's season hasn't exactly been a bust for those in very deep leagues, but he's never going to be an elite scorer.

Canucks' Richardson Scores Lone Goal In Blowout

News: Brad Richardson scored his 10th goal of the season Saturday, as the Canucks were stomped 5-1 at home by the Ducks. Ryan Stanton and Zack Kassian grabbed helpers on the the first-period marker.
Analysis: Brad Richardson actually managed to put up a decent stat line despite the beat down, recording four shots, two PIM, two hits and a takeaway. He now has four points in his last five games and also was one of only two Canucks to finish with a plus rating (plus-1) against Anaheim. In 67 games this season, the 29-year-old has been somewhat of a surprise, recording 21 points (10 g, 11 a) to bring him within one goal and six points of his career high set in 2009-2010 with the Kings.

Canucks' Richardson Stellar In Win

News: Brad Richardson netted his ninth goal of the season, had an assist and went plus-4 in Sunday's win over Buffalo.
Analysis: Sunday was just Brad Richardson's second game back after missing seven games with an undisclosed injury. The goal on Sunday ended a 21-game drought for Richardson, who has struggled offensively of late. The goal and assist were his first points in 11 games, giving the center 19 points in 64 games on the season. It's hard to put faith in Richardson, but the trio of him, Shawn Mathias and Zack Kassian was lights out on Sunday, combining for nine points against the Sabres. Who knows, maybe Richardson is on to something.

Canucks' Richardson Rejoins Lineup Wednesday

News: Brad Richardson will play Wednesday against the Predators.
Analysis: Brad Richardson missed the last six games with the undisclosed injury, with coach John Tortorella only labeling him as day-to-day during that time. The 33-year-old has totaled 17 points in 62 games on the season.

Canucks' Richardson Considered Day-To-Day

News: Brad Richardson missed Monday's game against the Islanders with an undisclosed injury.
Analysis: Brad Richardson was out of the lineup the previous two games as a presumptive healthy scratch, but coach John Tortorella disclosed that he was "day-to-day" with an injury. The nature of his ailment remains unclear, as does when he might return to the lineup.

Brad Richardson

Canucks' Richardson Returns

News: Brad Richardson (undisclosed) is slated to return to action Thursday against Montreal.
Analysis: Henrik Sedin will not play in the Canucks' next two games, but the team's forward corps will be bolstered Thursday by the return of both Brad Richardson (who has 17 points in 56 games) and Chris Higgins.

Canucks' Richardson Out Monday

News: Brad Richardson (undisclosed) will not play Monday against the Red Wings.
Analysis: There's no indication what's wrong with Brad Richardson at this point, but expect Zac Dalpe to take his place in the lineup against the Wings. Richardson has eight goals and nine assists in 56 games this season.

Canucks' Richardson Scores Power-Play Goal

News: Brad Richardson scored a goal with the man advantage in a win over the Jets on Sunday. It was his first power-play goal of the season and only the second of his career.
Analysis: Brad Richardson isn't used on the power play in Vancouver, but scored Sunday as he came on for a shift just before a first-period power play expired. He now has 15 points in 39 games on the season. Not bad for a guy who plays on the third line.

Brad Richardson

Canucks' Richardson Collects Two Helpers

News: Brad Richardson picked up a pair of assists and went plus-2 in a 6-2 blowout of the Bruins on Saturday.
Analysis: He has now collected six goals and 14 points in 35 games on the season. His production has been rather impressive, considering the fact he has spent all season in a bottom-six role. He continues to play on the third line and never gets any power-play minutes. He is useful in deeper formats, but it's hard to count on a third-liner in shallower leagues.

Brad Richardson

Canucks' Richardson Ends 11-Game Goal Drought

News: Brad Richardson ended an 11-game goal drought on Tuesday, scoring his sixth goal of the season in a win over Nashville.
Analysis: Brad Richardson has cooled off as of late, tallying only three points over his past 11 games. He is falling back into the depth role we originally thought he would take on with the Canucks. He still has 12 points in 30 games on the year, but he is playing on the third line, averaging 13:19 of ice time per game and seeing no power-play minutes.

Canucks' Richardson Adds To Goal Total

News: Brad Richardson scored his fifth goal of the season in a 4-2 win over the Sharks on Thursday. He now has three points over as many games.
Analysis: He has now registered nine points in 18 games on the season and is plus-5. He is skating on the third line and is definitely worth a look in some deep leagues. He leads the league with two short-handed goals and is a regular on the penalty kill.

Avs' Richardson: Two More Assists

News: Brad Richardson set up two goals in Saturday's win over the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: He now has eight points (four goals, four assists) in 16 games and is well on his way to a career total. He may be able to help you, at least in the short term.

Canucks' Richardson Is OT Hero

News: Brad Richardson played the role of overtime hero in Tuesday's 5-4 victory over the Islanders.
Analysis: It was his fourth goal of the season, and he's now collected a surprising five points over his first 11 games. Brad Richardson hasn't scored more than six goals in a season since his seven-goal campaign with the Kings in 2010-2011. The offseason acquisition is proving to be quite a surprise, but he isn't used on the power play and is currently operating in a bottom-six role.

Brad Richardson

Canucks' Richardson Scores Third Of Season

News: Brad Richardson scored his third goal of the season in a shootout loss to the Penguins on Saturday.
Analysis: Brad Richardson now has three goals on seven shots this season and is providing Vancouver with some solid depth scoring. He is currently centering the fourth line though, and is only worth a look in the deepest of leagues. He is too low on the depth chart to continue putting up these impressive numbers.

Brad Richardson

Canucks' Richardson Scores Second Shorty

News: Brad Richardson scored his league-leading second short-handed goal of the season in a 3-0 win over the Sabres on Thursday.
Analysis: Brad Richardson has been a solid depth scorer this season and has two goals and an assist over his first eight games. Richardson is currently playing on the fourth line though, and is never used on the power play. He is not known as a goal-scorer so you shouldn't be too excited by his two short-handed markers. He has only scored 45 goals in 399 career NHL games. Don't get your hopes up.

Canucks' Richardson Pots Short-Handed Goal

News: Brad Richardson scored a short-handed goal in a 6-2 victory over the Oilers on Saturday.
Analysis: In addition to the goal, Brad Richardson went an impressive 80 percent on faceoffs. He is a depth scorer though and isn't usually known for his offensive production. He looked good against the Oilers on Saturday on the team's third line but rarely sees power-play time and shouldn't be seen as a viable fantasy option.
