Anthony Richard (born December 20, 1996) is a Canadian professional ice hockey forward who is currently playing for the Milwaukee Admirals in the American Hockey League (AHL) as a prospect for the Nashville Predators of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing career[edit]

Richard played major junior hockey with the Val-d'Or Foreurs of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League and was drafted by the Predators in 4th round of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, 100th overall.

In his fourth and final season with the Foreurs in 2015–16, Richard was signed to a three-year, entry-level contract with the Nashville Predators on November 14, 2015.[1]

During the 2018–19 season, Richard was recalled to the Predators on December 1, 2018 due to an injury to forward Filip Forsberg and made his NHL debut the same day against the Chicago Blackhawks in a 5–2 victory.[2][3] He was returned to the Admirals following the game.
