During his rookie season, Marshall played in portions of all 16 games. Marshall spent the first part of his career in the nickelback role, playing behind Chris Gamble and Ken Lucas. After the 2008 playoff season, Ken Lucas was released from the team, thus promoting Richard Marshall to the starting lineup.
