Richards Earns Player Of The Week Honors

October 21, 2008 - Central Hockey League (CHL) - Corpus Christi IceRays News Release

The Central Hockey League announced Monday that the recipient for the Oakley CHL Player of the Week for the period ending October 19, 2008 is Corpus Christi center Chris Richards.

Richards led the IceRays to a 12-3 win over the Tulsa Oilers in their only game of the week. The Cornwall, Ontario native scored four goals and added three assists leading the league in scoring despite playing just the one game. He also finished the game with a +4 plus/minus rating. The seven-point game matches a career high for the veteran center who had four goals and three assist on February 1, 2007 while a member of the Youngstown Steelhounds. The 5-10, 180-pound forward was one of the biggest off-season signings in the league after recording 278 points over his last three seasons (all with the SteelHounds).

In recognition of their achievement, Richards will receive a pair of Oakley sunglasses.

The IceRays return to the American Bank Center next Friday and Saturday to take on the Rapid City Rush and the Laredo Bucks, respectively. Tickets for both games are available at all Ticketmaster locations, and great promotions and ticket specials are available through the IceRays office. For more information, please call 361.814-PUCK.
