Richardson potted a pair of goals in Friday's win over the Flames. Richardson is now up to 26 points (nine goals) in 68 games on the season. The 31-year-old is a decent depth scorer, but he's fairly inconsistent and has never surpassed 14 goals in his career, so don't expect him to be of much value in anything but the deepest of leagues.
Richardson scored a goal in the first period of Saturday's 4-2 loss at Philadelphia. Richardson isn't a big contributor as Arizona's third-line center, but Saturday's goal marked his second point in five games. He's got two goals and an assist in the last seven games, and is up to 24 points for the season. The 31-year-old also took four shots in the game, his highest total since firing five in a game Jan. 26.
Richardson scored his fifth of the season in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to Winnipeg. Richardson decided to make the most of his 14:20 on the ice with five shots -- one of which made it past Connor Hellebuyck. Even though the 30-year-old winger hasn't bene able to find twine much this season, he is on pace for a career-high 33 points. Even though he has three points in his last four games, expect Richardson to continue logging bottom-line minutes.
Richardson tallied a rare goal in Thursday's 3-1 loss to San Jose. Richardson made the most of a tiny jump in ice time, firing three shots and scoring his fourth of the season. Prior to this one, the 30-year-old winger had not scored since Jan. 2. Though he received a promotion, expect Richardson to soon return to his bottom-line minutes.
Richardson picked up a goal and assist in Saturday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Oilers. He has six points (one goal, five assists) in his last six games. Richardson has been playing inspired hockey in Arizona's bottom six, but don't expect it to continue much longer. He is clearly capable of delivering in fits and spurts, but he's never delivered more than 27 points in any season (81 games in 2009-10) . Richardson is a marginal play in even the deepest of leagues.
