EMERSON, Man. — The case involving NHL player Mike Richards, who is charged with possession of a controlled substance, has been adjourned until Dec. 8.

Richards did not appear in provincial court Thursday and was instead represented by lawyer Hymie Weinstein.

Police in Manitoba charged Richards last month.

The Kenora, Ont., native was arrested and released June 17 after the Emerson RCMP detachment was notified that a controlled substance had been intercepted by Canada Border Services Agency officers at the Emerson port of entry.

Richards is currently a free agent after the Los Angeles Kings terminated his contract earlier this summer, citing a “material breach” of that contract.

The NHL Players’ Association has filed a grievance on behalf of Richards against the Kings contesting that termination.
