BIO

All-Star center and Team MuscleTech® star athlete Brad Richards has caused many pro goalies to lose sleep since coming into the league – he currently holds the record for game-winning goals in a single playoff season with seven (2004). The 6'0″ and 195 lbs. lefty has racked up some serious hardware over his career, highlighted by a Stanley Cup win during the 2003–04 season, which also saw Richards take home the Conn Smythe Trophy as the playoff MVP. After a stellar junior hockey career in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL), the Prince Edward Island native was taken in the 3rd round, 64th overall in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft. The NHL All-Star center has also represented Canada numerous times, competing in the World Cup of Hockey and the Olympic Winter Games.
