from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
You’ve got to do something pretty special to get on the Canadian Olympic radar if you weren’t invited to its summer camp.
Brad Richards is doing just that through the opening two months of the NHL season. The 29-year-old Dallas Stars center is among the league leaders with 32 points (7-25) in 25 games, on pace at this juncture to eclipse the 100-point plateau for the first time in his career. He entered this season as motivated as ever.
“The last couple of years of my career haven’t been where I wanted it, for various reasons,” Richards told ESPN.com this week. “I think last year I just wasn’t good, and the injuries compounded all that. Going into the offseason, I had no idea about the Olympic camp and that stuff. I was just focused on bearing down and getting a good summer of work in, getting healthy and getting really focused on my game again.”
