Description: New York center Brad Richards found the net twice Tuesday in a win over Carolina.
Insight: That gives Richards 20 goals for the season, the ninth time he's reached that threshold in his career. Richards' goals Tuesday were his fourth and fifth since the Olympic Break.
 
2/4/2014 9:44:00 PM
Description: Rangers center Brad Richards had a goal and an assist, three SOG and a +3 Tuesday against Colorado.
Insight: Richards' 0.72 ppg average (41 points in 57 games) is nearly identical to what he produced last season, but he has raised his SOG average from 2.39 to 3.30 per game.
 
12/5/2013 9:47:00 PM
Description: Rangers center Brad Richards extended his scoring streak to five games with a goal and one assist Thursday at Buffalo.
Insight: With eight goals and 22 points in 29 games, Richards is performing at a similar level to last season. However, he's raised his SOG average by 0.78 per game.

Description: Brad Richards acknowledged that the Rangers could buy him out over the summer. SOURCE: ESPN
Insight: The New York center called his 2013 season "a mess." Richards posted nice stats during the regular season (11 goals, 23 assists, +8) but John Tortorella demoted him to the fourth line during the playoffs. He didn't play at all in the last two games of the Boston series. Maybe a change of scenery will help Richards turn things around.

Description: New York center Brad Richards will be a healthy scratch for Thursday night's Game 4 against Boston. SOURCE: New York Times
Insight: Richards has seen his role diminshed this postseason and now it looks like he doesn't even have a role. This is pretty puzzling, especially considering how well Richards performed during the regular season (11 goals, 23 assists, +8).
 
4/19/2013 9:55:00 PM
Description: Rangers center Brad Richards strung together a hat trick Friday in an 8-4 win over Buffalo.
Insight: Believe it or not, Friday marked Richards' first career hat trick. It took him 896 career games to finally pot three goals in the same game. The win puts New York in sole possession of eighth place in the Eastern Conference with four games left to go in the regular season.
 
3/26/2013 10:37:00 PM
Description: New York center Brad Richards has produced one goal and two assists over his last two games.
Insight: It has been a disappointing season for Richards. He has five goals and 18 points in 30 games (0.60 ppg) after putting up 25 and 66 in 82 games (0.80 ppg) last season.
 
3/8/2013 10:35:00 PM
Description: New York center Brad Richards played well in his return to the lineup Friday against Ottawa (one goal, six shots on goal, +2).
Insight: Richards sat out the Rangers' previous two games because of soreness. He's not quite the player he used to be (just 12 points in 21 games) but Richards is still good enough to start in most fantasy leagues.
 
3/8/2013 1:59:00 PM
Description: Rangers center Brad Richards (back/neck spasms) is doubtful for Friday's game against Ottawa. The good news, however, is that it wasn't a concussion.
Insight: Richards has been dealing with soreness related to his neck and back after getting hit into the boards from behind Sunday against Buffalo. Richards has posted a pair of gials and 11 assists in 20 games this season and it was just 2009 that he put up 91 points for the Dallas Stars.
 
3/7/2013 4:53:00 PM
Description: Rangers center Brad Richards (upper body) doesn't have a concussion but there is still no timetable for his return, according to Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record.
Insight: Richards has been dealing with soreness related to his neck and back after getting hit into the boards from behind Sunday against Buffalo. Richards says he doesn't think the injury is a long-term concern.

Description: Rangers center Brad Richards (upper body) will miss Tuesday's game against the Flyers. SOURCE: Andrew Gross, Bergen Record
Insight: Richards has been dealing with an upper-body injury after getting hit into the boards from behind Sunday against Buffalo.
 
3/5/2013 6:07:00 PM
Description: Rangers center Brad Richards (upper body) is questionable to play Tuesday night after leaving the morning skate. SOURCE: Bergen Record
Insight: Richards has been dealing with an upper-body injury after getting hit into the boards from behind Sunday against Buffalo. The Rangers recalled Micheal Haley from Connecticut shortly after the skate so Richards will likely be a game-time decision.
 
1/27/2013 10:58:00 AM
Description: Rangers center Brad Richards had a goal, an assist, three shots and a plus-4 Saturday against the Maple Leafs.
Insight: Richards has six points (2 G, 4 A), 12 shots, four PIM and a plus-6 differential through five games. The Richards-Rick Nash-Marian Gaborik line has produced 14 points (6 G, 9 A) over the last three games.
 
1/15/2013 11:56:00 AM
Description: Rangers center Brad Richards is probable for Saturday's game against Boston. He's dealing with the flu.
Insight: Richards is a fantasy star coming off a mediocre 66-point season (25 G, 41 A). During the previous two seasons he had scored more than a point-a-game. Hopefully he'll return to his previous production level.

Description: Brad Richards scored a goal and added two assists in the Rangers' 4-3 win over Pittsburgh on Tuesday. NHL.com
Insight: Richards, who has points in each of his last three games, has 19 points (9g-10a) in his first 21 games as a Ranger.
 
7/2/2011 11:08:00 AM
Description: The New York Rangers have agreed to terms with Brad Richards on a nine-year contract worth $58.5 million. TSN
Insight: After listening to presentations from a half-dozen NHL teams on Friday, July 1, Richards had reportedly narrowed his choices down to the Rangers, Leafs, Kings, and Flames. He will no doubt play on the Rangers' top line alongside Marian Gaborik, which could benefit the fantasy values of both players.
 
6/23/2011 2:42:00 PM
Description: According to Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk, Brad Richards will not waive his no-trade clause prior to July 1. ESPN
Insight: What this means is that the Stars will receive absolutely nothing in return for their top scorer (77 points) last season. What this could also mean is that Richards has not chosen a team that he has a preference for and that he may elect to take the best offer. The Leafs, Rangers, and Kings have to be the strongest candidates for his services.
 
6/2/2011 3:07:00 PM
Description: According to Bob McKenzie of TSN, the Dallas Stars won't make a contract offer to Brad Richards because of the team's ownership situation. TSN
Insight: Richards will need to waive his no-trade clause before the Stars can begin shopping his rights to teams interested in his exclusive negotiation rights prior to July 1. It is difficult to foresee how Richards' situation will play out, although his days in Dallas appear to be over.
 
4/13/2011 11:06:00 AM
Description: Brad Richards admitted that he is "still kind of hesitant" to sign a long-term contract with the Stars because of the team's ownership issue. ESPN Dallas/Fort Worth
Insight: Richards still has two and a half months to contemplate his decision, but the inability of Stars' owner Tom Hicks to find a new buyer has dragged on much longer than that. Richards will be the most highly sought-after UFA should he remain unsigned by July 1.
 
4/12/2011 5:22:00 PM
Description: The Dallas Stars have fired head coach Marc Crawford after two seasons behind the bench. TSN
Insight: The Stars could not make the playoffs during the two seasons that Crawford was at the helm. The Stars had the opportunity to make the playoffs on Sunday with a win, but they could not defeat the lottery-bound Minnesota Wild. Crawford has been a head coach for three other franchises (Colorado, Vancouver, Los Angeles), so there's always the chance he could land somewhere.
