Brad Richards Out, Kyle Baun In For The Chicago Blackhawks

from Scott Powers of ESPN,

 Blackhawks forward Brad Richards will miss the final three regular-season games due to an upper-body injury but is expected to return for the playoffs, coach Joel Quenneville said Tuesday.

Quenneville didn't reveal when or how Richards suffered the injury. Richards played 15:21 of ice time in the Blackhawks' last game against the St. Louis Blues on Sunday. He has 12 goals and 25 assists in 76 games this season.

Chicago's Kyle Baun will make his NHL debut in place of Richards against the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday. Baun signed with the Blackhawks on March 26 after completing his junior season at Colgate.

No worries here for Richards, he does some of his best work as a spectator in the playoffs. Just ask his Rangers’ teammates last year. Try the meatloaf .. tip your servers .. I’ll be here all week.
