  • Capitals' Mike Richards: Will play Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Richards (illness) took part in warmups and will play in Saturday's game against the Penguins. Richards missed Friday's practice with an illness, but the ailment will not prevent him from taking the ice in Washington's do-or-die matchup with Pittsburgh. He will center the Capitals' fourth line.

  • Richards is dealing with an illness and missed Friday's practice as a result, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. It's too early to tell if Richards will be available for Saturday's Game 5 against the Penguins, but the next morning skate should help us shed light on the situation. Either way, this isn't likely to cause a stir in fantasy circles as the veteran has yet to record a single point in the playoffs.

  • Capitals' Mike Richards: Pots goal Tuesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Richards had a goal in Tuesday's 4-2 win over Ottawa. Richards opened the scoring early in the first period with his second goal of the season after being joining the Capitals in early-January. With limited minutes and power-play time, the two-time Stanley Cup winner is of tremendous value to the Capitals for his defensive abilities, but doesn't produce enough offense to warrant fantasy relevance outside of deeper leagues.

  • The drug charge against Richards was stayed in court Wednesday, the Winnipeg Sun reports. Richards was charged with one count of possession of a controlled substance while trying to cross into Canada last June, but with the charges now dropped, he is free from any further legal entanglement in the matter. The two-time Stanley Cup winning center has just one goal in 15 games this season, but with the legal picture cleared up, he could draw some interest if he hits unrestricted free agency this summer.

  • Richards found the back of the net Monday in a 3-2 win over the Coyotes. This was Richards' first point as a member of the Caps in 15 games. He's a two-time Stanley Cup winner playing for the best team in the league but Richards is only averaging 12:10 of ice time this campaign, and is well past his prime when he was a Flyer and went through a stretch of 283 points in 315 games between 2007-11.
