Team Mike Richards dropped a 5-3 decision to Team Andrew Ladd in a road hockey game with fans and other Winnipeg players at The Forks parkade on Tuesday afternoon.
The impromptu contest was set up by Cabbie Richards of TSN. Mike Richards was asked what what he's been doing during the lockout and his answer was similar to the one several players have had. "Not much. I'm just trying to stay in shape to be ready for hopefully when we do settle and get back on the ice," said the Los Angeles center. "The fans are missing hockey just as much as we are. We're not only the players of the game, we're fans of the game and we miss being around the guys and around competitive hockey."
