  • Capitals' Mike Richards: Court appearance adjourned until late-February

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/27/16) Richards' trial in Manitoba will not begin until Feb. 25, the Canadian Press reports.

    Richards was set to be tried on charges of possession of a controlled substance when he tried to enter Canada on June 17. The prosecutors are currently waiting on the results of an investigation requested by Richards' legal counsel which has yet to be concluded. The ongoing legal issues continue to linger, but for now Richards appears to be adjusting to the rigors of the NHL grind and is likely to be a permanent fixture in the Capitals lineup from here on, although his lack of offensive opportunity given him little fantasy value at the moment. He has no points in three games so far in DC.

    Capitals' Mike Richards: Skates 13 minutes in season debut

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/17/16) Richards made his season debut Saturday in Washington's 4-1 loss to Buffalo. He fired one shot and laid five hits in the loss.

    He won five-of-11 face-offs and didn't embarrass himself out there. We're not ready to speculate on Richards' go-forward role with the Capitals, but suffice to say he should deliver some quality bottom-six minutes for the team. It may take a little time for him to settle into an offensive routine, so let someone else take the bait right now.

    Capitals' Mike Richards: Will make season debut Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/16/16) Richards took line rushes for Saturday's pre-game skate and is expected to play against the Sabres, Mike Vogel of Monumental Network reports.

    Richards, signed by the Capitals on Jan. 6, has been improving in recent practices and head coach Barry Trotz appears ready to let him play. While the progress is reassuring, the Capitals have indicated they will be very pragmatic regarding Richards and a conditioning stint with AHL Hershey still looms as a possibility. It is hard to gauge Richards' fantasy value for the rest of the season although it does not appear at this time that he will crack Washington's potent top-six assuming everyone is healthy. Keep an eye on his progress, but it's hard to recommend picking him up in standard formats at this time, at least until his role becomes clearer.

    Capitals' Mike Richards: Won't play Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/12/16) Head coach Barry Trotz said Richards will not play Thursday against the Canucks, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

    Trotz said he would like to get Richards into the lineup before the All-Star game, which would put Richards' debut with the Capitals on or before the Jan.27 match against the Flyers if the timetable holds. It is also possible Richards will be sent down to AHL Hershey for a conditioning stint, as the 30-year-old forward has not played any meaningful hockey since April. In any case, Richards could be in the lineup in the not-too-distant future, so if you're considering rolling the dice on him deeper leagues, stay tuned.

    Capitals' Mike Richards: Signs one-year deal with Capitals

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/6/16) Richards signed a pro-rated, one-year, $1 million contract with the Capitals on Wednesday, Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post reports.

    Richards is expected to make about $500,000 as a result of the signing. The 30-year-old forward notched 16 points over 53 games last season, but hasn't seen any action this season after becoming an unrestricted free agent in the offseason. While he should provide some depth among the forward ranks, it's unclear exactly where the veteran will fit into the Capitals' lines moving forward.
