Brad Richardson has been feeling good in training camp after missing most of 2016-17.

Richardson fractured his tibia and fibula bones in mid-November and missed the remainder of the season as a result. He was off to a fairly good start too with five goals and nine points in 16 contests, making the timing particularly unfortunate. We'll have to see if he can start on a good note again this season and hopefully stay healthy this time around.

Brad Richardson (leg) is eager to get back on the ice for an NHL contest this season.

Richardson missed most of the 2016-17 campaign after he sustained a fractured fibula and tibia. He underwent surgery on Nov. 18 and had another procedure at the end of March to "clean up some things" inside his leg. "If training camp started tomorrow I'd be out there," Richardson said. "I feel night-and-day different than I did four months ago. I probably need a little more time on the ice and some reps, but I'm feeling really good and I'm ready to go." At 32 years of age, Richardson is now the oldest player on the roster and he's looking forward to leading by example.

Brad Richardson (leg) is expected to be shut down for the season.

He's seen just 16 games of action this season, but none since November since breaking his tibia and fibula. With little left to play for, and not up to game shape, it would make sense to call it a season and just focus on recovery.
Apr 1 - 2:58 PM

Brad Richardson practiced for the first time since breaking his tibia and fibula on November 17.

It was thought at the time that Richardson was done for the season and that was a shame as he was off to his best start of his career with five goals and nine points in 16 games. "He’s come a long way," coach Dave Tippett said. "He’s right on schedule, which is good. You never know with those injuries. He’s hoping to get back and play games this year. That’s a positive thing."
Feb 27 - 8:02 AM

Brad Richardson (leg) is weeks away from returning, but he might be back before the season's over.

"It’s a serious, serious injury," Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. "It’s a long rehab back, but it’s good to see he’s coming the right way and I hope he gets the chance to play some games this year. I think that’d be really good for him to come back and going into the next year know that he got back and playing." Richardson hasn't played since Nov. 17. He's been skating regularly, but he can't participate in team practices yet.
Feb 23 - 6:46 AM

Brad Richardson (broken leg) skated again on Saturday.

Richardson broke his leg on November 17 and has not played since. He was off to the best offensive start of his career with five goals and nine points in 16 games before going down. "He’s getting closer," Tippett said. "He’s starting to get integrated with the group a little bit, which is a good sign. He’s still a ways away, but he’s coming along. He’s past the stage where he’s skated on his own. He can start getting integrated a little bit. I don’t think full practice yet, but it’s good to see him out there." Stay tuned.
Feb 19 - 5:13 AM

There's no timetable yet for Richardson's return, but it will likely be a while as he broke both his tibia and fibula. He was having a fantastic season with five goals and nine points through 16 games, easily the best rate of his 10-year career.
