Los Angeles Kings Activate Brad Richardson

EL SEGUNDO, CA — On January 29, the Los Angeles Kings activated forward Brad Richardson from injured reserve.

The 23-year-old native of Belleville, Ontario missed 22 games due to a severe cut on his foot he suffered on December 3.

During a three-game conditioning assignment with the Manchester Monarchs of the American Hockey League (January 15-22), Richardson scored a goal and added two assists for three points.

In nine games with the Kings this season, Richardson has recorded one assist. He was acquired from the Colorado Avalanche on June 21, 2008, in exchange for a second round pick (61st overall) in the 2008 National Hockey League Entry Draft.

In 145 career NHL regular season games with the Kings and Avalanche, the 5-11, 184-pound forward has scored 19 goals and has contributed 22 assists for 41 points with 55 penalty minutes.

    Thought he played a good game. Skating with Handzus and Simmonds their line was pretty effective.

    It’s about time Murray stuck with some line combinations for awhile, don’t you think? And yes, Richardson was pretty effective on that line.

    any explanation of why coach murray is decreasing ice time for Harrold after he skated us through a tough patch last month?
    I don’t understand why this coach punishes strong play and rewards poor play. Greene has been horrible at times yet he constantly plays tons of minutes. Doughty has cost us quite a few games with poor decisions yet he’s on late in the game more than anyone else. Gauthier got ejected from that game early in the 2nd period and STILL played nearly as much as Harrold. I’m amazed Murray ever wins a game.
