    Red Wings' Brad Richards: Puts forth multi-point outing Saturday

    Richards tallied a pair of assists in Saturday's 5-1 rout of the Islanders. Father Time has not been kind to the 11-time 60-plus point center, as these were just his 14th and 15th points in 38 games this season. Still, Richards provides a winning pedigree and a ton of experience to a Red Wings squad ripe with young talent -- something that is sure to come in handy should Detroit be able to muscle their way into the postseason come April.

    Red Wings' Brad Richards: Scores in win Monday

    Richards scored his fifth goal of the season in a 4-2 victory against the Islanders on Monday. Ricahrds snapped a seven-game scoreless streak with the goal. The center's production has waned over the last couple seasons, and he's on pace for the least points of his career this year. That being said, he's not relied upon as heavily in Detroit, and is there to provide a steady second-line presence rather than light up the scoreboard.

    Red Wings' Brad Richards: Out Friday for personal reasons

    Richards will miss Friday's game in Buffalo following the passing of his grandfather, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. Khan adds that Richards will play Saturday against the Ducks, a home game that precedes three straight games on the road. It's not clear who will take his spot in the lineup Friday, but it appears that a call-up will be made since there are only 11 forwards available and currently no extra defensemen that could temporarily assume a forward role.

    Red Wings' Brad Richards: Firing at will

    Richards was unable to get on the scoresheet, despite launching six shots on net against the Wild on Monday. Richards saw his three game point streak come to an end Monday. Peppering opposing goaltenders, the 35-year-old has 29 shots on goal in his last seven outings, recording two goals and three assists in the process. St. Louis will be next to face the center's onslaught of shots on Tuesday.

    Richards scored a goal in Sunday's 4-2 victory against Calgary, his third in the last seven games. Richards has played much better as of late, with four points in his last seven contests.

    Red Wings' Brad Richards: Scores Detroit's only goal

    Richards scored Detroit's only goal while firing five shots on net in Monday's 2-1 loss to the Sabres. Age has clearly caught up to the 35-year-old forward, but he has done his best to defy it with two points and 11 shots over his last two games. Even with this minor bump in production, Richards has just two goals and five assists this season despite playing in a top-six role.

    Red Wings' Brad Richards: Finally gets first goal of the season

    Richards scored his first goal of the season in Saturday's overtime win over Nashville. He has struggled to recover from a back injury and has just five points in 14 games. Richards' star has dimmed over the last few years, in part due to age and in part because of his slow feet. But Richards' drop doesn't feel as dramatic as former teammate, Vinny Lecavalier's. Still, we wouldn't put him on a roster unless it was super deep and he manages to go on a run.

    Red Wings' Brad Richards: Two helpers makes a difference Saturday

    Richards collected two primary assists in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win against the Blues. Richards skated around the net and connected with Pavel Datsyuk, who posted his first goal of the season. In the overtime frame, he also contributed a game-winning helper to Teemu Pulkkinen with the man advantage. Despite missing 13 games with a back injury, Richards has looked energetic since returning to action Friday. In the past two games, he has combined for seven shots on goal, but the trouble is that nothing has been falling for the 35-year-old center. Richards is past his prime, but he does have 288 goals and 619 assists through 1,066 career contests, so you know that he's capable of big things for the Winged Wheel.

    Red Wings' Brad Richards: Looks ready to return

    Richards (back) practiced with the second power play unit Thursday and appears ready to return Friday against Los Angeles, Ansar Khan of MLive reports. Richards finally looks good to go after missing nearly a month with a back ailment. He had two points in six games before his injury, and should slot back in as a bottom-six center.
