Mike Richards reacts to recent praise from Ian Laperriere

After Mike Richards was traded to LA last June, his former Flyers teammate Ian Laperriere came on MayorsManor and spoke very highly of him. Soon thereafter, Richards shared some memories of their time together in Philadelphia.

Then, Laperriere was back last week – this time, to talk about Jeff Carter coming to the Kings. As part of that interview though, Laperriere was again talking up Richards - saying if he was to start a team, Richards would be on his short list of five players he’d have to have.

Here’s how Richards reacted upon hearing the comments…

“Coming from him, that means the world to me. He’s a guy who helped me out a lot, just being a professional. You take a lot of things from a lot of different players that you play with. But, he’s – I don’t even know the word to describe how awesome he is in the dressing room and on the ice, how much care and how much effort he gives. If you take half the knowledge that he put out there the year I played with him, you’re going to have success. So, coming from him, that means a lot. I have a lot of respect for him. It’s sad the way it ended for him. But, he’s a hell of a guy and I really appreciate that.”
