LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Kings have activated forward Brad Richardson
from the injured reserve list, Kings President/General Manager Dean Lombardi announced Thursday.
Richardson, 23, has missed the last 22 Kings game due to foot injury he suffered during practice on December 3. He was sent to the Manchester Monarchs (AHL) for a three-game conditioning assignment (Jan. 15 through Jan. 22) where he recorded three points (1-2=3) and zero penalty minutes.
The 5-11, 184-pound native of Belleville, Ontario has played in nine games with the Kings this season, recording one point (an assist) and seven penalty minutes. Richardson is in his first season with the Kings after being acquired from the Colorado Avalanche on June 21. He has played in 145 career NHL regular season games with the Kings and Avalanche, recording 41 points (19-22=41) and 55 penalty minutes.
The Kings next play tonight against the Chicago Blackhawks at 7:30 p.m. at STAPLES Center. The game will be broadcast on KTLK AM 1150 and the Kings Radio Network.
