Brad Richards Front And Center With Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts

from Jeff Z. Klein of the New York Times,

Brad Richards, the son of lobster fishers in Prince Edward Island, joined the Rangers just 17 months ago, but he is definitely a New Yorker now. In the days after Hurricane Sandy, he has been a frequent volunteer in hard-hit parts of the city, gutting flood-damaged homes in Queens and helping to organize a benefit hockey clinic on Staten Island.

It is work he has let others speak for, work he has not wanted treated like a celebrity photo opportunity.

On Saturday, Richards will help make a public contribution, serving as a team captain in a charity game in Atlantic City to benefit families affected by the hurricane. Called Operation Hat Trick, it will feature a star-studded lineup that includes Martin Brodeur, Henrik Lundqvist, Daniel Alfredsson and Steven Stamkos.
