Crunch's Richard Continues to Round Out Game


By Jeremy Houghtaling

Tanner Richard is still adding more facets to his game.

A playmaker in junior, the Syracuse Crunch center spent the past two years developing a more physical presence fit for a grinding line. In his third full pro season, Richard has become the team’s most reliable player for faceoffs and is refining his ability to be an agitator that takes the opposition off their game.

Richard’s versatility has earned him more playing time in all situations.

“He’s matured as a player, because he’s more well-rounded,” said Crunch head coach Rob Zettler. “I can use him in a number of different situations. I trust him out there and he works hard to get back as well. He’s earned his ice time and he’s certainly been a valuable player for us all year.”
