Canucks' Richardson Still Sidelined

News: Brad Richardson (ankle) won't play either Monday against the Blues or Tuesday against the Preds, the Province reports.
Analysis: Beyond that, Brad Richardson should be considered iffy, at best, for Thursday's contest against Chicago.

Canucks' Richardson Remains Questionable

News: Brad Richardson (ankle) participated in Thursday's morning skate, but remains questionable to play later in the evening against the Avalanche.
Analysis: Brad Richardson was able to practice with the team Wednesday as well, but with the center suggesting he'd likely be day-to-day for the remainder of the season, his availability may remain in question for any given night. That sort of unreliability makes it tough to justify rostering him, even in deeper formats.

Brad Richardson

Canucks' Richardson Not Playing Thursday

News: Brad Richardson (ankle) will not play Thursday against the Avalanche, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Brad Richardson was able to skate during the team's optional session, but it looks like he'll receive further time off to recover from the ankle injury. He remains day-to-day.

Canucks' Richardson Could Be Slowed Rest Of Season

News: Brad Richardson (ankle) could be limited by his injury for the remainder of the season.
Analysis: Brad Richardson said he tweaked his ankle a week ago against the Jets and is viewing himself as day-to-day on an ongoing basis the rest of the way. While he was able to practice Wednesday, Richardson said that the inability to control his movements during games can present issues. He's been forced to sit out the last four games as a result, and there's no indication when he might draw back in. It could happen as early as Thursday against the Avalanche if Richardson indicates he feels comfortable enough his ankle during the Canucks' morning skate to give it a go later that evening.

Brad Richardson

Canucks' Richardson Out Again Tuesday

News: Brad Richardson (ankle) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Jets, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Brad Richardson was able to take part in the Canucks' morning skate, but is apparently still fighting the ankle injury a bit. As a result, he'll sit out his fourth straight game, with Linden Vey centering the Canucks' third line in his stead.

Canucks Rule Richardson Out For Road Trip

News: Brad Richardson (ankle) has been ruled out for the Canucks' two-game road trip over the weekend.
Analysis: With Brad Richardson limited to skating on his own prior to Friday's practice, the Canucks determined he wouldn't be fit to play over the next couple of days. Richardson should continue to work out on his own back in Vancouver in preparation for a possible return to the lineup Tuesday against the Jets.

Brad Richardson

Canucks' Richardson May Not Go On Road Trip

News: Brad Richardson (ankle) was able to skate under the evaluation of the Canucks' skills coach prior to Friday's practice.
Analysis: The ankle injury forced Brad Richardson out of Thursday's loss to the Blue Jackets, and it looks like it could cost him some additional time. Since he hasn't resumed practicing with the full squad, Richardson's chances of traveling with the Canucks for their two-game road trip over the weekend appear questionable at best. Coach Willie Desjardins should confirm as much before the team departs to Los Angeles for the first game of the trip.

Canucks' Richardson: Game-Time Call Thursday

News: Brad Richardson missed the Canucks' morning skate with an ankle injury and is a game-time decision for Thursday's tilt with the Blue Jackets, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: It sounds like Brad Richardson might have aggravated the ankle injury that cost him 24 games prior to his return to the lineup Saturday. The third-line center has played effectively in his first two games back, picking up an assist in both matches. The Canucks will see if Richardson can make enough progress over the afternoon to suit up against the Blue Jackets, but it seems likely that he could sit out as a precaution if nothing else. Linden Vey would enter the lineup in the event Richardson is ruled out.

Brad Richardson

Canucks' Richardson Out Thursday

News: Brad Richardson (ankle) was not on the ice for warmups, meaning he will miss Thursday's game against the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: Brad Richardson was considered a game-time call after what sounded like an aggravation of the ankle injury that sent him to injured reserve. His next chance to return will come Saturday against the Kings.

Canucks Activate Richardson From IR

News: Brad Richardson (foot/ankle) was activated from injured reserve Saturday, signaling that he'll play later in the evening against the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Brad Richardson has been out since January with the lower-body injury, missing the Canucks' last 24 games as a result. However, he resumed practicing in full Wednesday and centered the Canucks' third line at Friday's practice, an indication he's ready to go after a lengthy absence. Richardson's return will put the team's forward ranks at full strength entering the stretch run of the season.

Brad Richardson

Canucks' Richardson Expected To Return Saturday

News: Brad Richardson (ankle) expects to play Saturday against the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Brad Richardson has been out since late January due to an ankle injury, but has made strides over the past week to return to the ice soon. That could come as early as Saturday, when Richardson would certainly be welcomed back into the Canucks' lineup. While at the moment he expects to be ready, Richardson's status probably won't be confirmed one way or the other until closer to game time Saturday.

Brad Richardson

Canucks' Richardson Gets In Full Practice

News: Brad Richardson (ankle) logged a full practice Wednesday, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Brad Richardson didn't skate as part of a regular line during the session, so it wouldn't appear likely that he'll play Thursday against the Kings. Nonetheless, Richardson's participation in practice at least positions him one step closer to a return, though a definite date hasn't been established yet.

Brad Richardson

Canucks's Richardson Continues Skating

News: Brad Richardson (ankle) skated before Monday's team skate, Elliott Pap of the Vancouver Sun reports.
Analysis: Brad Richardson has been sidelined since early January with an ankle injury, and while his ability to continue skating is an encouraging sign, he'll likely need to get a few practices with the team under his belt before he returns. The team has not provided a timetable for the 30-year-old, but he's likely at least a week away from game action.

Brad Richardson

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.

Brad Richardson

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.

1/31/2015

Brad Richardson, C, VAN

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.

Brad Richardson

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.

Brad Richardson

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.

Brad Richardson

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.

Brad Richardson

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.
