Richardson was drafted seventh overall by the Maple leafs in 1987 and was expected to be an impact, all-around defenseman. His offense never developed at the pro level. Therefore, he's best remembered in hockey-mad Toronto for being a draft bust and for getting his ass kicked by Dino Ciccarelli's stick. (Dino spent a night in jail after giving Richardson a few whacks upside the head.) It's a shame that's the case. Richardson lasted 21 years in the NHL and turned into a very solid stay-at-home defender. He is currently an assistant coach for the upstart Ottawa Senators.
