Bio

Luke Richardson Bio

Richardson never scored more than four goals or finished with more than 21 points in a season. But his durability and willingness to sacrifice his body as a stay-at-home defenseman helped him fashion an NHL career that began in 1987-88 and didn't end until he played the last of his 1,417 games on Oct. 24, 2008.

The Toronto Maple Leafs selected Richardson with the No. 7 pick in 1987 NHL Draft after he finished with 45 points (13 goals, 32 assists) in 59 games for Peterborough of the Ontario Hockey League in 1986-87. He stepped right into the NHL as an 18-year-old in 1987-88, with 10 points (four goals, six assists) in 78 games.
