    From the crawl last night on YES in NY:

    "NYR G Henrik Lundqvist fastest to 100 wins, passing Mark Ritcher"

    How soon they forget.

    Jeebus, both names wrong. What's little Mike doing these days, anyhow? I always thought he'd be great in broadcasting, but he's probably out there somewhere having a real life. Excellent, thoughtful guy, even though he was a Ranger.

    Right. But the crawl was 0-for-2 on "Mike" and "Richter".

    Richter's been busy, it seems. From Wiki:

    Mike Richter returned to college in 2004 and will graduate in 2007 from Yale University. He is majoring in Ethics, Politics & Economics (EP&E). Richter entered Yale through the Eli Whitney Students Program.[1] His admission was notable in that Yale admits very few older students into the College and he was among this highly select group in 2004. Richter also volunteers as a coach for Yale's men's hockey team coaching alongside head Keith Allain. Allain was an assistant coach for Team USA in the 1996 World Cup of Hockey.[2]

    In 2007 the Rothenberg Political Report reported Richter, who lives in Guilford, Connecticut was considering running for U.S. Congress under Connecticut's 4th congressional district in 2008 as a Democrat. However, on March 23, 2007, he stated that he would not run,[3] despite still expressing interest in seeking public office one day.

    Richter competed in Ironman Lake Placid on July 22, 2007. The triathlon involves a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, and a 26.2 mile run. He completed the grueling race in 12 hours 49 minutes 10 seconds.

    On November 4, 2007 Richter ran in his first New York City Marathon finishing with a time of 3:54:35.[4].
