    • Arizona Inks Richardson To Three-Year Deal

      News: Brad Richardson (ankle) signed a three-year contract with the Coyotes on Wednesday, John Shannon of Sportsnet reports.
      Analysis: The Coyotes might have the worst collection of forwards in the league, and while Brad Richardson's addition likely won't dramatically improve matters, he at least gives the team additional depth. Skating mostly as the Canucks' third-line center last season, Richardson produced eight goals and 21 points in 45 games. He could be ticketed for a top-six role with his new club.
    • Canucks' Richardson Hopes To Skate By Mid-July

      News: Brad Richardson (ankle) hopes to resume skating by mid-July, News 1130 Vancouver reports.
      Analysis: Brad Richardson underwent surgery on his ankle following the Canucks' elimination in the first round of the playoffs back in early May. While the forward said he isn't quite back to 100 percent yet, he's progressing well and should be back at full health for the opening of training camp. Richardson is set to become a free agent his summer, but the Canucks have already begun negotiating a new deal with the 30-year-old.
    • Canucks' Richardson Ticketed For Ankle Surgery

      News: Brad Richardson will undergo surgery to repair a fractured ankle next week, Jon Abbott of TSN 1040 reports.
      Analysis: Brad Richardson was able to suit up for the Canucks' final two games of their first-round series defeat to the Flames, but was consistently hobbled by the injured ankle during the second half of the season. The forward, who also will require a procedure to address ligament damage to the ankle, is slated to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. The surgery shouldn't prevent him from being ready for the start of training camp with any organization he might join.

      News: Brad Richardson (undisclosed) will remain a game-time decision for Game 6 against the Flames on Saturday, Farhan Lalji of TSN reports.

    • Canucks' Richardson Iffy For Thursday

      News: Brad Richardson (undisclosed) is a game-time decision for Thursday's contest against the Flames.
      Analysis: Brad Richardson, who was on the ice for the Canucks' optional skate Thursday morning, missed Tuesday's Game 4 with an unspecified injury. Prior to that, he had racked up 15 PIM (all in Game 2 of the series) over the team's first three playoff contests.

Richardson had been bothered by an ankle injury at the end of the regular season that cost him significant time, and though he was able to return for Game 1 of the postseason, it seems probable that he's still feeling the effects of the ailment. Linden Vey will replace him on the Canucks' third line.
