It's easy come, easy go for the Dallas Stars and Brad Richards. Richards returned to the Stars' line-up after missing only 15 games with a broken wrist, only to suffer another broken wrist in that same game. The wrist he broke on Saturday night was not the wrist he had broken previously. This new injury will now end his regular season, but I suppose there is some hope that he can make a return, depending on how deep the Stars go, if they go, in the playoffs. Currently, the Stars are not in the playoff picture, sitting in 12th spot in the West, only 3 points out of 8th.
In the Draft, Dale C. has Richards and was likely looking forward to his return, only have his season dashed away. Dale currently sits 33 points out of the money in 8th place and the scratching of Richards from his active list again should all but dash the hopes of a money season in the Draft.
In 56 games with the Stars, Richards recorded 16 goals and 32 assists.
