Richardson (leg) remains on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site. The 32-year-old has been limited to 16 games this season due to a fractured tibia and fibula. We learned that Richardson started traveling with the team near the end of February, but the veteran remains without a timeline for his return to game action. It's safe to leave him on the waiver wire this late in the season.
Richardson (leg) will be "along for the ride" as the Coyotes kick off a three-game road trip, Sarah McLellan of The Arizona Republic reports. While this news rules Richardson out for the next three contests, it's encouraging that he will be able to join the team. The center had a strong start to the year with five goals and four helpers in just 16 outings, but he hasn't played since mid-November. With Arizona almost certainly out of playoff contention, the team is likely in no rush to get the 36-year-old back on the ice.
Richardson (leg) skated at Sunday's morning skate with teammates. The forward's return timeline as been murky, but this new development seems like he'll be able to return within the next few weeks. With nine points in 16 games before going down, if he is able to get back on that scoring track, Richardson would be a solid fantasy play.
Richardson (leg) skated for the first time Monday since breaking his leg on Nov. 17. Richardson was having a decent season before going down, recording nine points and 25 shots in 16 games. It's still up in the air how long it might take the 31-year-old to return to game action after undergoing surgery back in November, but suiting up for a twirl at practice is certainly a step in the right direction.
Richardson (leg) has officially been placed on injured reserve, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports. We already knew that Richardson would be facing a lengthy absence following his surgery Friday, so this move to IR is not surprising. Jordan Martinook, Laurent Dauphin, and Dylan Strome are in line to see more playing time in Richardson's absence.
