Scouting Report

Richard is a highly skilled player who earned a spot on the roster with his hard work and perserverance. He was not expected to make the team this year, but had an exceptional training camp and earned a spot beating out Len Barrie. Richard is the fastest current Penguin and currently holds the Penguin record at the Super Skills competition. He is a good stickhandler and passer with great accuracy and a good shot. He is also a good defensive player in his own zone and receives a lot of ice time on the Penalty Kill. Richard's only shortcoming is his size, which is small for an NHL player, but Richard is successful despite his size. Richard is also a favorite among the players and is repeatedly the victim of many good-natured practical jokes.
