Mike Richards (LWL Player Profile
), of the Los Angeles Kings, is on pace for his worst season in five years. He currently sits at 26 points in 45 games which places him well out of the top 100 point earners in the NHL. He is pointless in eight straight games.
The first thing I look at when a player has lower-than-normal point totals is his goal totals. Richards has 14 goals in 45 games. Ignoring injuries, this number projects to 25 goals for a full season.
