Anthony Richard joins the Boston Bruins

Last year, Anthony Richard enjoyed tremendous success in the CH organization. The forward, who was a former client of Kent Hughes when he was still a player’s agent, burned up the AHL with 30 goals and 67 points in 60 games, but he also did well when he played in the NHL.

In 13 games, he scored three goals and five points, all while bringing intensity to the bottom of the lineup.

However, we’ve just learned that he won’t be continuing his career with the Tricolore. The forward has decided to sign a one-year, two-part contract with the Bruins.

And if he spends the entire year in the AHL, he’ll earn $450,000.

In fact, it’s a bit of a surprise: Richard decided to hit the market for a one-way contract, but ends up signing a two-way deal with another organization.

Still, the Bruins are guaranteeing him a nice sum if he plays in the AHL (perhaps more than the Habs were prepared to give him), and that may have made the difference.

Richard may also be aware that there may be room in the Bruins’ attack for smaller players on the payroll.
