Coyotes' Brad Richardson: Starting to chip in more
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (lower body) scored a goal on three shots and won 10 of 13 (76.9 percent) faceoffs in Saturday's 3-2 shootout loss to Chicago.

Richardson got the Coyotes on the board with a rebound goal midway through the second period. It was only his fourth goal of the season, but three of those have come over eight games since the New Year. The 34-year-old scored a career-high 19 goals a year ago but got off to a brutal start in 2019-20 with just one goal in his first 35 games. Richardson appears to be figuring things out since Christmas but still does not offer much fantasy appeal.

Coyotes' Brad Richardson: On ice for warmups
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (lower body) took part in warmup and is expected to play Saturday against Chicago, Richard Morin of The Arizona Republic reports.

Richardson returns after missing the last four games with a lower-body injury. With only three goals and three assists in 42 games this season, the 34-year-old's return to Arizona's lineup doesn't change fantasy lineups all that much.

Coyotes' Brad Richardson: Closing in on return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to coach Rick Tocchet, Richardson (lower body) is close to being cleared for contact, Alexander Kinkopf of the Coyotes' official website reports.

It's safe to assume Richardson won't be available for Wednesday's matchup with the Ducks, but the veteran forward should be ready to rejoin the lineup sooner rather than later. The 34-year-old's impending return will bolster the Coyotes' depth up front, but it won't impact any fantasy lineups, as he's only picked up six points in 42 games this campaign.

Coyotes' Brad Richardson: Surfaces on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (lower body) has been placed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

Richardson won't be available Thursday against Vancouver or Saturday against Edmonton, but he'll be eligible to return following the All-Star break Jan. 29 against the Ducks. Either way, the veteran forward has only picked up six points in 42 games this campaign, so there's no reason for fantasy owners to track his status.

Coyotes' Brad Richardson: Sitting out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (lower body) won't play in Thursday's game versus the Canucks, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

Richardson exited Tuesday's win over the Sharks with an injury, and it will keep him out of this divisional clash. The veteran center went pointless with a minus-6 rating over the previous five contests. Michael Chaput was recalled from AHL Tucson and is expected to fill Richardson's fourth-line center role.

Coyotes' Brad Richardson: Suffers injury Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (lower body) will not return to Tuesday's game versus the Sharks, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

It's not clear how Richardson suffered the injury, which occurred in the second period. He skated 8:33 and blocked a shot in the game before his exit. Richardson's absence will affect the Coyotes on the ice more than it will in fantasy. Expect Christian Fischer to enter the lineup if Richardson is forced to miss games.

Coyotes' Brad Richardson: Scores in consecutive games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson potted a goal, dished two hits and went plus-2 in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Flyers.

Richardson opened the scoring at 12:33 of the first period, the first of four straight Coyotes goals in the first 40 minutes. The 34-year-old has goals in back-to-back games now, but he's at only six points in 37 appearances overall. With a bottom-six role, Richardson won't often factor into the offense much, and it's virtually impossible for him match the 27-point output he had in 2018-19.

Coyotes' Brad Richardson: Breaks out of slump with GWG
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson scored a goal on two shots and had two PIM in a 4-2 win versus Anaheim on Thursday.

Richardson's second goal of the season, which came just under seven minutes into the third period, stood as the game-winner for the Coyotes. The 34-year-old hadn't scored in his last eight games, although that's a minor skid compared to his season-opening 26-game drought. Richardson scored a career-high 19 goals in 66 games last year, but he has shown no indication of rediscovering that touch in 2019-20.

Coyotes' Brad Richardson: Pots first goal of 2019-20
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson scored a goal on two shots and was plus-2 in Thursday's 5-2 win over Chicago.

The 34-year-old finally netted his first goal of the season, deflecting a Jacob Chychrun shot late in the first period to extend Arizona's lead to 3-0. It was Richardson's first goal since the 2018-19 regular-season finale. Never known for his offensive abilities, Richardson did nonetheless score a career-high 19 goals in 66 games last season. That's obviously not happening again this year.

Coyotes' Brad Richardson: Limited ice time in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (upper body) recorded four hits and one shot with a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 4-3 loss to Minnesota.

The 34-year-old was back in the lineup after missing seven games and logged a team-low 15 shifts and 10:55 of ice time. He did tie for the team lead in hits, which is about what you can expect on a nightly basis from the bottom-six role player.

Coyotes' Brad Richardson: Returns to lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (upper body) will play in Saturday's game against the Wild, Alexander Kinkopf of the Coyotes' official website reports.

Richardson is expected to return to the bottom six. He posted one point and averaged 13:33 TOI before missing the last seven games, so his fantasy aptitude is negligible.

Coyotes' Brad Richardson: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (upper body) is listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site.

Coyotes' Brad Richardson: Set to miss Monday's matchup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (upper body) is not expected to be in the lineup versus Edmonton on Monday, Alexander Kinkopf of the Coyotes' official website reports.

It will be the fifth straight absence for Richardson who continues to deal with an upper-body issue. With the 'Yotes heading into a back-to-back, it's hard to imagine the center will be ready to play versus Calgary on Tuesday, though no official determination has been announced by the club. In the meantime, Nick Schmaltz figures to continue slotting into a top-six role with Richardson on the shelf.

Coyotes' Brad Richardson: No-go against Colorado
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (upper body) won't play Saturday against the Avalanche, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

Richardson will miss a fourth consecutive contest Saturday. The veteran forward is, however, still considered day-to-day with his upper-body issue, so he could return to action as soon as Monday against the Oilers.

Coyotes' Brad Richardson: Still sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (upper body) won't play Wednesday against Montreal, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

According to coach Rick Tocchet, Richardson is close to rejoining the lineup, but he'll have to wait for Saturday's matchup with Colorado for his next opportunity to do so. Once he's given the green light, the veteran forward will return to a bottom-six role.

Coyotes' Brad Richardson: Not ready yet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (upper body) won't suit up for Monday's game against the Sabres, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

Coach Rick Tocchet said Richardson remains "day-to-day," so he has a chance to gear up when the Coyotes return home for Wednesday's matchup against the Canadiens. The veteran figures to fill into the bottom six once he's ready, and he'll look to repeat last year's 27-point effort.

Coyotes' Brad Richardson: Status uncertain for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Rick Tocchet said Sunday that Richardson (upper body) is questionable for Monday's game against Buffalo, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.

Richardson missed Friday's game with the issue, and as evidenced by this news, could be in jeopardy of missing more time. If he's forced to sit out Monday, rookie Barrett Hayton should continue to slot into the lineup.

Coyotes' Brad Richardson: Dealing with upper-body issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson's injury is now considered to be an upper-body issue, Alexander Kinkopf of the Coyotes' official website reports.

The injury was initially described as being a lower-body issue, but that has since changed. Richardson remains day-to-day for the time being.

Coyotes' Brad Richardson: Can't play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (lower body) won't play in Friday's game against the Devils, Mike Morreale of reports.

Richardson has been adequete in a bottom-six role this year, posting a point and a minus-4 rating over nine games. This injury is new, and he'll be replaced by promising rookie Barrett Hayton in the lineup.

Coyotes' Brad Richardson: Picks up first point
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson picked up an assist and two shots on goal in 13:48 of ice time during Saturday's 5-2 win over Ottawa.

Richardson has had an extremely slow start to the season, but it was never realistic to expect him to repeat his 19-goal, 27-point performance from a season ago. He'll continue to skate in a bottom-six role for the Coyotes' throughout the campaign, and may struggle to crack the 20-point mark, making him unusable in the vast majority of fantasy formats.
