After an NHL career that spanned 17 years and included stops in Colorado, Los Angeles, Vancouver, Arizona, Nashville and Calgary, former NHLer Brad Richardson is confirmed to be returning to the NHL beginning next season as a scout.

Richardson confirmed the news while on the PHNX Coyotes Podcast that he's been hired by the Calgary Flames as a professional scout. Now, obviously different scouts have different roles and responsibilities. Some scout prospects, others scout overseas and some specifically scout other NHL teams. Richardson has confirmed that, in his role, he will be responsible for scouting Western Conference teams in the NHL.
The 38-year-old was originally drafted by the Colorado Avalanche in the fifth round back in 2003 and went on to appear in 869 regular season games in the NHL, racking up a respectable 254 career points (111 goals, 143 assists), 443 penalty minutes and was a minus-31. Not bad for a depth player.
As a member of the Los Angeles Kings in 2012, the Belleville, Ontario native won the Stanley Cup, skating in 13 games during their playoff run and putting up one goal. He'll now look to help right the ship in Calgary in hopes of winning another Stanley Cup, albeit as an employee and not a player this time around.
