Read: The GREAT Things That Brad Richards Is Doing

In his 30 Thoughts Column this week, Elliotte Friedman said that if the NHL has a season and an awards ceremony, Brad Richards may have already locked up the King Clancy Memorial Trophy.

The award is “given to the player who best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice and has made a noteworthy humanitarian contribution in his community.”

Adam Graves won the award in 1994.

Just in the past couple of weeks, Richards has organized a hockey clinic in Staten Island, along with Scott Hartnell organized a charity game this Saturday, and was helping out in Breezy Point.

The clinic in Staten Island raised over $14,000.

This section focuses on Richards and how good of a person he is.
