I found this sentence in Mike Heika’s article about Brad Richards’ injury to be pretty impressive.
In the 629 regular-season games his NHL teams have played, Richards has dressed for 619 of them.
He’s missed 10 games in his entire career up until now. Poor guy probably has no idea what he’s going to do for five weeks with a cast on his arm.
This is Brad’s 8th season in the NHL and before he came to Dallas at the trade deadline last season, he had missed two games in his whole career. The other 8 games he missed were at the end of last season. He had been playing while he had mono in Tampa Bay.
He’s going to be missed, that’s for sure.
My advice for him is to be very careful with what he uses to scratch under his cast.
