Richards (upper body) will play Monday against the Predators, ESPN Chicago reports.

Richards participated in the Blackhawks' practice Sunday, skating on the second line with Kris Versteeg and Patrick Kane. Over 33 games this season, Richards has tallied six goals and 12 assists with a plus-9 rating. It will be interesting to see what the Blackhawks decide to do with the lines Monday when Richards returns, but Patrick Sharp was not among the top six forwards Sunday, making him the likely candidate for demotion.

Richards (upper body) will not play Saturday against the Avalanche, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.

Richards didn't travel with the team to Colorado, but should start skating on his own back in Chicago at some point over the weekend. Coach Joel Quenneville seemed optimistic that Richards -- who will miss his third straight game -- would be available for Monday's match with Nashville, but he'll first need to partake with the team at morning skate before that materializes.

Richards (upper body) is improving and skated in the morning, but will miss Tuesday night's game against the Jets, the Blackhawks reported.

Richards missed Sunday's victory over the Maple Leafs, but it appears that he should be ready for Saturday's game in Colorado. Richards has six goals and 12 assists in 32 games, trailing the pace that led him to an already-disappointing 20 goals and 31 assists in 82 games with the Rangers last year.

Richards will not be in the lineup on Sunday night against Toronto with an upper-body injury and is considered day-to-day, CSN Chicago reports.

There is no word when Richards suffered the injury as it was not apparent in Saturday night's loss to Columbus. Richards has six goals and 12 assists in 32 games and is behind last season's totals of 20 goals and 31 assists in 82 games with the Rangers.

Richards added an assist on Wednesday night to his resume to stretch his point streak to three games where he has accumulated three goals and two assists for the Blackhawks.

After taking almost the first two months to get adjusted to his new team in Chicago, Richards appears to have settled in on the second line with Patrick Kane and Kris Versteeg. Even with the slow start Richards could match his numbers of last season where he had 20 goals and 31 assists in 82 games for the Rangers. With the assist against the Blues, he has six goals and 11 assists for the Blackhawks in 25 games. Chicago takes on Montreal on Friday and Richards has 10 goals and 14 assists in 41 games played in his career against the Habs.

Richards scored two goals, including the game-winner, in a 4-1 win over the Kings on Saturday.

Richards now has four points in his past two games and establishing some chemistry with winger Kris Versteeg. Though Richards is still struggling in the faceoff dot, Richards has provided some depth scoring for Chicago, who are still without Patrick Sharp. Richards now has 16 points in 24 games this season. While he's no longer an elite center, he can still provide a little bit of offense.

Richards scored his fourth goal of the season and added an assist in Friday's win over Anaheim.

Richards is now up to four goals and 14 points in 23 games, to go with a plus-5 rating. Playing on the second line alongside Patrick Kane, Richards should continue producing at a decent pace. His 90-point days are over, but he could still be a 50-point guy on a high-scoring Chicago team.

Richards picked up two assists and had five shots on goal in his 1,000th NHL game Sunday against Dallas.

Richards has put up some nice production of late, tallying two goals and six points in his last six games. Currently centering the second line and playing on the top power-play unit, there is no reason the former Ranger can't continue to produce. He's starting to find a home in the Windy City.

Richards tallied his first goal of the season in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Maple Leafs.

Richards has scored four of his five points on the season over the last five games, but that hasn't changed the fact that he's been a disappointment to date. He was expected to challenge for the second-line center role in training camp, but it appears the Blackhawks have settled on Andrew Shaw at that spot for the time being.

Richards, who was signed as a free agent during the summer, registered an assist, his first point as a Chicago Blackhawk on Tuesday in the squad's 4-0 win over the Flyers.

The Blackhawks are looking for Richards to be on par with what he tallied last season, 20 goals and 31 assists in 82 games, but more importantly they wanted him to fill a much-needed center spot in the lineup especially in the Stanley Cup playoffs.
