    From Last Word on Hockey
    Justin Richards, C, Minnesota-Duluth, 5’11” 190 lbs, Junior

    Richards was named an alternate captain prior to his junior season and put up 14 goals and 25 points in 34 games for the Bulldogs. He was part of the back-to-back National Championship teams in his first two seasons, graduating into a big role in his sophomore campaign when he scored 32 points in 42 games. Richards plays a 200-foot game. He is responsible in the defensive end, plays the penalty kill and matches up against the other team’s top lines. Over the last two years, he’s also shown that he can use his strong skating, good vision and high-end hockey IQ to create points. He gets to open areas without the puck and makes smart passes with the puck.

    Son of former NHL coach Todd Richards

    I have to imagine 4C is what management sees as the potential.

    Nice signing. He has a legitimate chance to make it as a bottom six guy. The Rangers are really trying hard to build a bottom six in-house, which would be great so they don't have to spend $$$ on a decent one.

    I don’t know anything specific about the player but I like the thought process behind the signing.

    Another Hartford signing. Of all the guys they brought on board, only Khodorenko has NHL upside

    The thing about Duluth is a lot of their players don't put up big numbers but that team wins. Scott Sandelin is a hell of a coach. Maybe Richards never makes it but I wouldn't count a player coming off this team out. In last year's NCAA championship UMD just tore UMassAmherst with Makar on board apart. The team with arguably the best offense in all of college hockey were never even in the game.

    That's highly debatable. And since when are you any kind of expert on NCAA hockey? I've never even heard you discuss it, really.

    The type of player they are, how dominant they were at college level. It's very rare that UDFAs from college become even serviceable players in the NHL, especially when they spend all 4 years in college. Even Khodorenko's chances are slim, but I think he has the best odds out of the 3. Obviously, it's just anyone's guess.

    My failing memory seems to overrate Adam Oates and Marty St Louis
