Canucks' Richardson Resumes Skating Wednesday

News: Brad Richardson (ankle) resumed skating back in Vancouver on Wednesday, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 AM reports.
Analysis: Brad Richardson, who hasn't played since Jan. 16 due to the injury, is probably more than a week away from returning to action. Until he starts practicing with the rest of the team's healthy forwards, Richardson shouldn't be viewed as close to being activated from IR.

Brad Richardson

Canucks' Richardson In Walking Boot

News: Brad Richardson (ankle) has been outfitted into a walking boot, Jon Abbott of TSN 1040 AM reports.
Analysis: Brad Richardson isn't dealing with a fracture of any kind, but doesn't seem particularly close to getting back on the ice. The Canucks have yet to provide an expected recovery timetable for the center since he landed on injured reserve last week.

Canucks' Richardson Still Not Ready For Return

News: Brad Richardson (ankle) is not ready to return to action and will likely be out Tuesday against the Jets, Jim Jamieson of The Province reports.
Analysis: Brad Richardson has already missed over a week of action, so he's eligible to return when he's fully healthy. Coach Willie Desjardins expressed his surprise that Richardson was still recovering from the ankle injury, so he'll likely have to aim for a return on Thursday against the Sharks.

Brad Richardson

Canucks Place Richardson On IR

News: Brad Richardson (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Friday.
Analysis: The Canucks recalled forward Ronalds Kenins in a corresponding move. Brad Richardson's activity remains limited while he recovers from the ankle injury, taking him out of the running to return to the lineup Friday. Since he's already missed over a week due to the injury, he'll be eligible for activation as soon as the Canucks deem his ready to go.

Canucks' Richardson Not Ready To Play

News: Brad Richardson (ankle) isn't expected to be ready to play Friday against the Sabres, Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province reports.
Analysis: Coach Willie Desjardins reiterated Thursday that Brad Richardson's injury isn't considered serious, but because the forward hasn't been able to resume practicing yet, his return to action will have to wait. Richardson has sat out the Canucks' previous three games with the injury.

Brad Richardson

Canucks' Richardson To Remain Out Tuesday

News: Brad Richardson (ankle) left the Canucks' morning skate early and doesn't look like he'll be an option for Tuesday's game against the Ducks, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Brad Richardson resumed practice in full Monday, but it appears he'll get some more time to recover from the ankle injury that sidelined him for the final two games of the Canucks' road trip. Linden Vey is expected to fill his spot in the lineup, skating alongside Chris Higgins and Alex Burrows. Richardson's next opportunity to return to action will come Friday versus the Sabres.

Canucks' Richardson Out Tuesday

News: Brad Richardson (lower body) won't play Tuesday against the Lightning.
Analysis: Brad Richardson is thus on track to miss his second straight game. We'll revisit his status in advance of the Canucks' first contest after the All-Star break, a Jan. 27 tilt against the Ducks.

Brad Richardson

Canucks' Richardson Questionable For Monday

News: Brad Richardson will be re-evaluated prior to Monday's game after looking "pretty sore" Sunday.
Analysis: Exactly what Brad Richardson is dealing with is unclear, but it may be rooted in a lower-body injury that he was dealing with earlier in the month. The team should provide an update on his status prior to Monday's game against the Panthers.

Canucks' Richardson (Lower Body) To Play Thursday

News: Brad Richardson (lower body) will play Thursday against the Panthers.
Analysis: By participating in Thursday's optional gameday skate without any issues, Brad Richardson was given the go-ahead to suit up for the game later in the evening. He's expected to center the Canucks' third line, a role that won't provide him with a ton of fantasy relevance.

Canucks' Richardson Leaves With Lower-Body Injury

News: Brad Richardson suffered a lower-body injury in Tuesday's win over the Islanders and didn't play in the third period, Iain MacIntyre of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Coach Willie Desjardins said after the game that he believes Brad Richardson will be healed up and ready to play in time for Thursday's tilt with the Panthers. The center notched an assist -- his 19th point in 38 games this season -- and recorded two PIM in his 7:25 of ice time Tuesday.

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.

Brad Richardson, C, VAN Canucks' Richardson Continues To Find Twine

Brad Richardson

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.

Brad Richardson

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.

Brad Richardson

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.

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.
