Predators' Brad Richardson: Sends helper in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson notched an assist and two shots on goal in Monday's 5-0 win over the Hurricanes.

Richardson set up Matt Duchene's second-period tally in Monday's blowout win. The 36-year-old Richardson had an injury-plagued regular season, which saw him play in just 17 contests. He was limited to a career-low four points with 18 shots on net and 14 hits. The Ontario native is unlikely to see more than bottom-six minutes in the playoffs, although he'll likely also be involved on the penalty kill.

Predators' Brad Richardson: Activated from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (lower body) was activated from injured reserve and will play Saturday against Dallas, Adam Vingan of The Athletic reports.

Richardson hasn't played since March 9, a span of 25 games. He's not exactly a fantasy darling (three points in 12 games, 11 in 59 last season), but he's a bottom-six staple in the Predators' lineup and should at minimum provide an emotional boost to the team in an important matchup with playoff implications against the Stars.

Predators' Brad Richardson: Remains out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (lower body) is not in Monday's lineup against Florida.

Richarson is still considered day-to-day but hasn't played since March 9. The 36-year-old has three points in 12 games this season.

Predators' Brad Richardson: Out again Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (lower body) is not in Friday's lineup against the Blackhawks.

There's still no clear timetable for Richardson's return beyond his "day-to-day" designation. The veteran forward has played just 12 games this season while battling multiple injuries, scoring three points with 11 hits in the process.

Predators' Brad Richardson: Still missing action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (lower body) isn't in the lineup for Wednesday's game against Chicago.

Richardson has missed 35 of the past 39 games while dealing with the lower-body issue, and he'll miss another Wednesday. The veteran was upgraded to day-to-day Tuesday, so consider Richardson questionable for Friday's game against Chicago. The 36-year-old has just three points and 10 shots through 12 games this campaign.

Predators' Brad Richardson: Considered day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (lower body) is now considered day-to-day.

Richardson has missed 35 of the last 39 games while battling multiple injuries. The 36-year-old has three points through 12 games while averaging 12:17 of ice time. He'll be questionable for Wednesday's matchup against Chicago.

Predators' Brad Richardson: Back on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.

Richardson was just activated off injured reserve last Wednesday after missing time with an upper-body injury only to return to the injured list one week later with a lower-body issue. Michael McCarron will likely get the first crack at replacing Richardson on Nashville's fourth line.

Predators' Brad Richardson: Activated from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (upper body) was activated from injured reserve Thursday.

Richardson is available for Thursday's game versus the Panthers. The 36-year-old hasn't played since Jan. 30. He posted two points through the first eight games while averaging 11:35 per contest before this injury.

February 23, 2021 07:12 PM
Predators' Brad Richardson: Still unavailable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (upper body) won't play in Tuesday's game versus the Red Wings, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

Richardson has been skating, so he's closing in on a return. For the time being, the 36-year-old forward will remain on injured reserve. Once he gains clearance, Richardson should bump back into a bottom-six role, where he registered two points and seven hits over the first eight games.

Predators' Brad Richardson: Nearing return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (upper body) could return to the lineup as early as Tuesday's clash with the Red Wings, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.

Richardson last played Jan. 30 versus Tampa Bay, a stretch of nine games on the sidelines due to his upper-body problem. The 36-year-old Ontario native has recorded one goal on five shots, one assist and seven hits while averaging 11:35 of ice time. Once given the green light, Richardson will likely slot into a bottom-six role, which will limit his opportunities to get on the scoresheet.

Predators' Brad Richardson: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Predators placed Richardson (upper body) on injured reserve Wednesday.

Richardson will miss Nashville's next two games at a minimum now that he's been placed on IR. The 35-year-old forward's absence will test the Preds' depth up front, but it won't impact many fantasy lineups, as he's only totaled 13 points in 67 games over the past two campaigns.

February 1, 2021 06:36 PM
Predators' Brad Richardson: Out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (upper body) will not play in Monday's contest against Tampa Bay.

Richardson has appeared in all eight games for Nashville this season but hasn't tallied a point since Jan. 16. He's considered day-to-day and could suit up for Thursday's game against the Panthers.

Predators' Brad Richardson: Picks up first goal in new uniform
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson scored a goal on his lone shot and won nine of 16 faceoffs (56.3 percent) in Saturday's 5-2 win over Columbus.

Richardson cleaned up a loose puck in front to give the Predators a 3-2 lead nine minutes into the third period. It was his first goal with Nashville and stood as the game-winner. The 36-year-old, in his 16th NHL season, has a point in each of his first two games with his new team while providing a strong presence in the faceoff circle.

Predators' Brad Richardson: Debuts with an assist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (thumb) collected an assist and won seven of 12 faceoffs (58.3 percent) in Thursday's 3-1 win over Columbus.

Richardson showed no ill effects from his offseason surgery, centering Nashville's fourth line and chipping in with an assist on Filip Forsberg's game-winning goal. The 35-year-old journeyman signed with Nashville in the offseason following stints with Colorado, Los Angeles, Vancouver and Arizona. Richardson is a reliable bottom-six role player who scored a career-high 19 goals just two seasons ago.

Predators' Brad Richardson: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (thumb) is in the projected lineup for Thursday's Opening Night matchup with Columbus.

Richardson underwent thumb surgery following last season's playoffs, but he's had plenty of time to recover and shouldn't have any limitations against the Blue Jackets. The 35-year-old vet is expected to center Nashville's fourth line Thursday.

Predators' Brad Richardson: Secures deal with Predators
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (thumb) signed a one-year, $1 million contract with Nashville on Monday.

The 35-year-old forward underwent surgery on his thumb after the Coyotes were knocked out of the playoffs, and it's unclear what his rehab timeline will look like. Richardson scored just six goals and 11 points in 59 games with Arizona last season. Expect the veteran to fill a bottom-six role with the Predators next season.

Brad Richardson: Will become free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (thumb) will be allowed to hit the open market, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.

While Richardson won't be re-signed prior to the opening of free agency Friday, the Coyotes appear to still have interest in bringing him back into the fold if the price is right. The 34-year-old center has reached the 20-point mark in just one of his previous four seasons, so fantasy players shouldn't be banking on him producing at high levels offensively.

Coyotes' Brad Richardson: Will require offseason surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson suffered a thumb injury during the playoffs that will require offseason surgery, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.

They Coyotes have yet to release an expected timetable for Richardson's recovery, but at this point there's no reason to believe he won't be ready when next season's training camp opens in mid-November. Richardson will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and at 35 years old, it remains to be seen how much interest he'll draw on the open market. The 2003 fifth-round pick notched 11 points in 59 regular-season contests before adding two goals and an assist in nine playoff games while skating in a fourth-line role for Arizona.

Coyotes' Brad Richardson: Unlikely playoff hero
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson scored the overtime, and series, winner during Friday's 4-3 victory over the Predators in Game 4 of their Stanley Cup Qualifier.

The 35-year-old grinder scored only six goals and 11 points in 59 games during the regular season and came into Friday with zero points in three games during the series, but Richardson found himself in the right place at the right time a little over five minutes into the extra period, banging home his own rebound to send Arizona into the next round. If Coyotes fans are looking for a good omen, here it is -- the last time Richardson scored a postseason goal came in the first round of the 2012 playoffs for the Kings, and they went on to hoist the Stanley Cup.

Coyotes' Brad Richardson: Hits ice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (groin) took part in Monday's Phase 3 training camp practice, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.

Richardson underwent surgery back in mid-May after playing through the injury for much of the season. It seems the extra time off afforded the center the opportunity to get healthy. The veteran center should be expected to take on a bottom-six role when the club faces off with Nashville on Aug. 2.
