Michael Richards is a Canadian former professional ice hockey player. Richards played 11 National Hockey League seasons, spending time with the Philadelphia Flyers, Los Angeles Kings, and Washington Capitals, winning two Stanley Cups with the Kings. Richards was drafted in the first round of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft by the Flyers, 24th overall. On June 29, 2015, the Kings announced that they had terminated Richards for being in violation of his contract, "for a material breach of the requirements" of his Standard Player's Contract. The National Hockey League Players' Association filed a grievance on August 10 disputing the termination, which was settled on October 9, 2015, thereby making Richards an unrestricted free agent. Richards was a member of two Stanley Cup-winning teams with Los Angeles, in 2012 and 2014, in addition to being a part of numerous championship teams at various levels, including the Memorial Cup, World Juniors, the Calder Cup, and an Olympic gold medal.
