LOS ANGELES (AP) Center Mike Richards and the Los Angeles Kings settled their dispute Friday over the termination of Richards' contract after his arrest in June.
The NHL Players' Association announced the settlement without disclosing the terms. Richards, who had five years and $22 million left on his contract, officially became an unrestricted free agent.
"The terms are agreeable to all parties," the Kings said in a terse statement.
