Description: Blackhawks center Brad Richards scored a goal and had three shots during Monday's shootout victory over the Predators.
Insight: Richards now has seven goals and 19 points through 34 games. However, more impressively he is plus-nine on the season, as he is minus-64 over 1,016 career games.
 
11/30/2014 10:17:00 AM
Description: Blackhawks center Brad Richards scored a pair of goals in the Western Conference Finals rematch against the Kings on Saturday.
Insight: Richards has six goals and 10 assists this season, so he isn't producing like he used to, but if owners selected him at the right time, he may be providing some value. He is worth owning in deeper leagues.
 
11/12/2014 10:02:00 AM
Description: Blackhawks center Brad Richards scored his third goal of the season on Tuesday.
Insight: Richards tied the game at one with a score at the 9:13 mark of the second period. Kris Versteeg and Brandon Saad had the assists. Chicago went on to win in a shootout due to Patrick Kane's shootout goal.
 
10/1/2014 7:19:00 PM
Description: The Blackhawks have signed Brad Richards to a one-year, $2 million contract.
Insight: The Rangers bought out Brad Richards in June. The 34-year-old had 51 points (20 goals) in 82 games last season, but he certainly could see an uptick as Chicago's second-line center.
 
7/1/2014 7:22:00 PM
Description: Blackhawks center Brad Richards should be a good fit in Chicago.
Insight: He is coming off a 51-point season with the Rangers, and really should improve upon those numbers, as he will be playing alongside Patrick Sharp and Patrick Kane. Expect around 60 points for Richards, in 2014-15.

Description: Brad Richards has been bought out by the Rangers. SOURCE: Nick Kypreos, Sportsnet
Insight: It's not unexpected and the move frees up nearly $7 million in cap room for New York. Richards was productive during his three-year stay in Manhattan, generating 56 goals and 95 assists in 210 games for the Blue Shirts. This season marked Richards' second trip to the Stanley Cup after winning it with the Lightning in 2004.
 
4/17/2014 10:26:00 PM
Description: Rangers center Brad Richards played a big role in Thursday's Game 1 victory over the Flyers.
Insight: Richards finished the night with one goal and two assists. All three of his points came in the third period. New York leads 1-0 heading into Sunday's Game 2 at MSG.
 
4/9/2014 10:19:00 AM
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.
 
5/27/2013 8:12:00 PM
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.
 
Cold5/23/2013 12:58:00 PM
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.
 
3/5/2013 6:33:00 PM
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.
