Mike Richards has started skating in Winnipeg amid the NHL's work stoppage.

"I've never gone through this before but I try to keep in the loop as much as possible," he said. "We just listen to Don (Fehr, NHLPA executive director) and the NHLPA and obviously we have full confidence in them and are going to stand together." Richards posted 15 points in 20 playoff games to help the Kings win the Stanley Cup in the spring, but the delay of the 2012-13 campaign has put a damper on what should have been an exciting time for hockey in Los Angeles.
