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.

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.

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.

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.

Canucks' Richardson Practicing As Third-Line Center

News: Brad Richardson (general body soreness) is back practicing with the team and is centering the third line, the Vancouver Sun's Brad Ziemer reports.
Analysis: Brad Richardson took an off day Friday to rest up, but has since been practicing with the club. He was supposedly going to center the fourth line, but some roster moves may have opened up that third-line spot. Even if he lands the gig, don't expect much, as he has never topped 30 points and likely won't see significant power-play time.

Canucks' Richardson Misses Practice With Soreness

News: Brad Richardson missed team practice Friday morning with general-body soreness, the Vancouver Sun's Brad Ziemer reports.
Analysis: The Canucks don't play until Thursday so it seems as if Brad Richardson is just taking a rest day. Coach John Tortorella claims it is nothing serious and just a way to give the guy a rest. He is the projected fourth line center this season and will be a key depth forward on the team.

Brad Richardson

Canucks' Richardson Could Center Third Line

News: Brad Richardson skated between Chris Higgins and Jannik Hansen during scrimmages Saturday and could potentially center the team's third line.
Analysis: Brad Richardson could be worth a look in deep leagues if he lands the gig, but don't have high expectations. The 28-year-old forward has never topped 30 points in his entire NHL career.

Brad Richardson

Richardson Signs With Canucks

News: Brad Richardson agreed to a two-year, $2.3 million contract with the Canucks on Friday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.
Analysis: Brad Richardson should help the Canucks with depth, but he doesn't figure to be a major fantasy contributor after scoring a total of just 33 points in 193 games over the last three seasons. He was a healthy scratch at times the past two seasons, and has never averaged more than 13:29 of ice time per game throughout his career. Richardson is likely ticketed for the Canucks' fourth line, though even that spot may not be guaranteed.

Brad Richardson

Richardson's Assists Help Kings Top SJ

News: Brad Richardson logged two assists in LA's 3-2 win over San Jose on Saturday night.
Analysis: He won't be mistaken for an offensive-minded rearguard with numbers like 1-5-6 in 16 games. There are probably better blueliners for your playoff pool.

Kings' Richardson Likely A Healthy Scratch For Game 4

News: Brad Richardson is expected to be a healthy scratch for Wednesday's Game 4 against the Devils, L.A. Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Brad Richardson took part in morning skate but stayed on the ice while Simon Gagne departed with the group of players slated to play on Wednesday. Gagne's return would keep Richardson on the bench in all likelihood.

KIngs' Richardson Ready

News: Brad Richardson (appendectomy) pronounced himself ready to play Wednesday against the Canucks, the LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: The report adds that Brad Richardson will likely replace Andrei Loktionov on the Kings' fourth line in Wednesday's Game 4.

Kings' Richardson Practices

News: Brad Richardson returned to practice Tuesday, a week after undergoing an appendectomy, the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Brad Richardson, who skated on the Kings' fourth line Tuesday with Colin Fraser and Jordan Nolan, has a real chance to play in Wednesday's Game 4. "We'll see tomorrow, but he is cleared for full activity," coach Darryl Sutter said of Richardson on Tuesday. "This was his first day. He'd have to have a setback."

Richardson Back Skating For Kings

News: Brad Richardson (abdomen) skated Saturday for the first time since an emergency appendectomy five days ago but is unlikely to play in Game 3 on Sunday, the LA Kings Insider reports.
Analysis: Brad Richardson is a possibility for later in the series but seems very unlikely for a quick return Sunday.
