We showed you the video of the Brad Richardson injury last night. Now we have an update for you.
After having surgery on his broken right leg, Richardson should be able to be back to 100%. When Vancouver defenseman Nikita Tryamkin fell awkwardly on top of Richardson, it caused Brad to fracture the tibia and fibula bones in his leg. He was stretchered off and was taken straight to a Vancouver hospital.
It seemed like such a harmless play. It was how his leg bent under the weight of Tryamkin that led to the injury.
Richardson is a good team guy and you hate to see such bad injuries occur, it's good to know he will be ok.
