I remember reading about this in a book for kids
called something like “Strangest True Sports Stories”.

I think it was a US publication and if I recall there was very little hockey in it. Interestingly, Richard was portrayed quite sympathetically - that he was hot-headed
and clearly overreacted badly, but also that he had been provoked, the punishment was excessive compared to others and he sincerely tried to quell the violent person public reaction. Read it a long time ago though!
