Brad Richardson (ankle) is still recovering from off-season surgery.

Richardson will become an unrestricted free-agent on July 1st and he and the Canucks are still working towards a new deal. The 30-year-old had surgery after Vancouver was eliminated in the first round of the playoffs by Calgary. He had eight goals and 21 points in 45 games last season.

It appears that Brad Richardson and the Vancouver Canucks are discussing a new contract.

The 30 year old veteran forward Richardson just finished a two-year, $2.3M deal. He also is healing from ankle surgery, an injury which caused him to miss 37 games from mid-January to mid-March. Richardson was able to play in the final two regular season games plus five more in the playoffs. The reliable defensive forward was on route to his best career offensive season with eight goals and 21 points through 45 games, a pace that surely would've topped his previous highs of 14 goals, 16 assists, and 27 points.
