  • Richardson has started a career-high 73.3 percent of his five-on-five shifts in the defensive zone and has averaged 1:49 of shorthanded ice time per game this season. The 32-year-old forward has settled into a shut-down role for the Coyotes to start the campaign, which obviously caps his fantasy potential. Richardson was a solid scorer in the OHL and flashed offensive upside in earlier years, but the 2012 Stanley Cup champion's locked into a depth role, with most of his ice time coming in defensive situations at this stage of his career.

    By RotoWire Staff

    Richardson (leg) skated with a group of teammates Thursday, Sarah McLellan of The Arizona Republic reports. Having been sidelined since November, Richardson declared he would be ready for training camp last month, and his participation in Thursday's skate would seem to indicate he will indeed be at full health for the preseason. Richardson has been an attractive option in deeper leagues in past years, but proceed with caution in 2017-18. A Stanley Cup champion with the Kings in 2012, Richardson is now 32 years of age and a year removed from playing in NHL games, which isn't promising for his fantasy value, considering that he's never been much of a scorer in the first place.
