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 (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.
