Richardson signs two-year contract

Another of the Kings’ restricted free agents rejoined the fold today, as Brad Richardson signed a two-year contract for a total of $2.35 million. Richardson gets a salary bump from his $900,000 last season. His new salary-cap hit is $1,175,000, and in terms of cash, Richardson will make $1 million in 2011-12 and $1.35 million in 2012-13. Richardson’s signing means the Kings will not have any arbitration cases this summer. The remaining restricted free agents are Drew Doughty, Andrew Campbell, Marc-Andre Cliche, Rich Clune, Corey Elkins, Bud Holloway, Trevor Lewis, David Meckler, Patrick Mullen and Jeff Zatkoff. Johan Fransson and Oscar Moller are also restricted free agents but are expected to play in Europe next season.
