No move needed for Richards

The Kings haven’t officially activated Mike Richards, but assuming they do tomorrow — it’s expected — they will not have to make a corresponding roster move. Because of the current holiday roster freeze, the Kings are allowed to remove a player from injured reserve without sending down a player or exposing one to waivers. If, on Dec. 28 — when the freeze ends — the Kings still have an extra body, they will then have to make a move.
