LA Kings Sign All Restricted Free Agents For One Year

EL SEGUNDO, CA — On July 17, the Los Angeles Kings signed five players—all were their restricted free agents—including center Brad Richardson, who signed a one-year contract, rumored to be worth $900,000, avoiding arbitration.

The 25-year-old native of Belleville, Ontario scored eleven goals and added 16 assists for 27 points in 81 regular season games last season, setting career highs in assists, points and games played. He also set a new career high with four game-winning goals.

The Kings were 10-0-1 in games when Richardson scored a goal last season.

In six playoff games, Richardson scored one goal, the game-winner in game 3 against the Vancouver Canucks. He also added an assist for two points with two penalty minutes.

The 5-11, 195-pound center was the Kings nominee for the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy, given annually to the player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to ice hockey.

In 112 regular season games with the Kings, Richardson has scored eleven goals and has added 21 assists for 32 points with 48 penalty minutes. In 248 National Hockey League regular season games with the Kings and Colorado Avalanche, he has scored thirty goals and has tallied 42 assists for 72 points with 96 penalty minutes.
