Rangers say Richards will be back next season
The Rangers said Friday center Brad Richards would remain with the team for the 2013-14 season.

The New York Rangers announced Friday that center Brad Richards would remain with the team for the 2013-14 season.

There had been speculation the club would use its second and final compliance buyout to terminate the final seven seasons of Richards' contract, which runs through the 2019-20 season with a salary-cap charge of just over $6.67 million per season.

Richards had 34 points in 46 regular-season games but struggled in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, scoring one goal in 10 games and finding himself a healthy scratch for the final two games of the conference semifinals against the Boston Bruins.

The Rangers used their first compliance buyout on defenseman Wade Redden prior to the 2012-13 season.
