Experience Counts

from the Ottawa Citizen,

Yet whatever Richardson ends up doing on the ice, he figures to serve an important role for the Senators on the bench and in the dressing room.

He’ll lend an ear if a younger player asks his advice. He’ll remove a struggling player from the dressing room for a pep talk or pat a player on the back for a job well done. He’ll take a prospect home to dinner to make him more comfortable in his surroundings. When Richardson was in Columbus, rookie Gilbert Brule lived with the family for a while.

Think of him as the Kevin Costner character in the baseball movie, Bull Durham, providing whatever tips he can, based on his experiences.
