    Anyone know where he's rated for the draft? I assume he will get overlooked after being passed over at last years draft, but he's been impressive in the two games I've seen him. What do Yale fans think of him and J-F Boucher, both guys I wouldn't mind seeing the Habs pick up down the road.

    He's ranked 20th among NA goaltenders.

    I've seen Yale four times already (although Richards didn't start in all of the games) and he's been impressive in the games I did see him in. I can see him being a "sleeper" pick. Good size and moves extremely well.

    wow, 20th? :amazed: I'm surprised he's that low. Oh well hope the Habs keep an eye on him. He's so big in nets, smart man going with the #33! ;)

    One of the few private school kids I actually liked in high school hockey. He went to Breck for all the right reasons (i.e. academics). I hope he makes it big cause he is a good kid and works hard.

    He won't be 20th in the final ratings. I believe his next TV appearance won't be for 4 weeks (Feb 24) Yale v. Quinnipiac on NESN.

    Very nice article in yesterday's New Haven Register on Mike Richter, student goalie coach at Yale. Richards is his pupil.
