Brad Richards finally and we do mean finally got point #900 tonight in the Chicago Blackhawks defeat of the Arizona Coyotes. It was a long time coming with Richard decent start to the season has come up very dry as of late, but with the Blackhawks offense struggling Richards picked a great time for a goal and his 900th career point.
Richards joins a pretty awesome club of players that have scored point #900 in a Blackhawks uniform The list is includes: Bobby Hull, Stan Mikita, Bobby Orr, Denis Savard, Steve Larmer, and Marian Hossa.
