Los Angeles Kings forward Mike Richards, now with their American Hockey League affiliate in Manchester, wasn't happy with his play in the NHL this season. He also said there is room for improvement after his first game with the Manchester Monarchs on Friday.
Richards, who was waived by the Kings earlier this week, cleared, and was sent to Manchester, was in the starting lineup and had two shots and two penalty minutes in a 3-1 victory against the Portland Pirates.
"I wasn’t great," Richards told Mayorsmanor.com. "I had some good shifts, did some good things, did some bad things, had some bad shifts. [You can] only go up from here."
