On June 30, 2023, signed a one-year contract with the Chicago Blackhawks for $4M: $2M in signing bonus and $2M in salary. On November 28, 2023, was put on unconditional waivers by the team to officially terminate his contract after an investigation concluded that he committed workplace misconduct. At that point, he had earned approximately $2.5M ($2M in signing bonus and 25% of his yearly salary). The NHLPA is likely to file a grievance which will likely result in a contract termination settlement with the team determining how much of the $3M left on his contract will be paid, and when. In 2015-16, Mike Richards had his contract terminated by the Los Angeles Kings and a settlement was reached whereby he would be paid approximately half of what remained on his contract over the next 17 years. On January 22, 2024, as a free agent, signed a contract with the Edmonton Oilers to finish the season for a $775,000 annual salary prorated at $387,500 for the rest of the year, plus a possible $325,000 in performance bonuses. For the whole season, earned $2.5M from Chicago and $712,500 from Edmonton, assuming he earned all the bonuses.
