Happy 18th birthday, Henri Richard

(Credit: Watchdog)

Loyal WatchDog reader Kenny Albert, presumably inspired by Anthony Rieber's piece on Feb. 29 birthdays, sent along this link to a Canadian Press story about Henri Richard, who celebrates his 18th birthday today.

Albert also sent a reminder that Brian Leetch's first game as a Ranger was 20 years ago today, Feb. 29, 1988.

(Why do we have to add an extra day to the dreariest month of the year? Why not May?)
