Brad Richards Missed Practice On Monday

It might just be for precautionary reasons, but New York Rangers center Brad Richards didnt practice on Monday after being on the receiving end of Patrick Kaletas suspension-worthy hit on Sunday, according to the New York Daily News.

Head coach John Tortorella doesnt seem too concerned, though.

Hell be fine, Tortorella said.

The 32-year-old suffered from a concussion during his last season with the Dallas Stars in 2010-11, so it makes sense that the Rangers are treading lightly.

Richards returned to action after taking that hit in the third period of Sundays game against the Buffalo Sabres, yet plenty of players have missed time after further evaluation in similar situations.

Well see if that check costs Richards any games. As you probably know, Kaleta will sit out five contests either way.
