Richter was a great prospect when he was a junior. He was drafted 32nd overall back in 1988. It took quite a while before he was ready to play in the NHL. Richter did pretty well with the big guys, but he was never really established as an NHL-defenseman. He spent a lot of time in the AHL, where he was always among the best defensemen in the league. He played a good two-way game and he wasn't afraid of heavy traffic.
