Richardson and his wife Stephanie raised two daughters, Daron and Morgan.

On November 13, 2010, Daron died by suicide at the family home in Ottawa.

Five days later, 5,600 mourners attended a celebration of life ceremony for her at Scotiabank Place.

The Philadelphia Flyers, one of Richardson’s former teams, held a moment of silence before their game against the Senators on November 15.

On February 2, 2011, the Richardsons, the Royal Ottawa Foundation for Mental Health, the Sens Foundation and the Ottawa Senators announced the creation of a program to inspire conversations about youth mental health.

Known as “Do it for Daron”, the hope was to honour her memory while raising money to prevent teenage suicide.

Luke and Stephanie were decorated with the Meritorious Service Cross for their efforts in 2018.

During the 2011–12 Canada women’s national ice hockey team season, Richardson’s daughter Morgan was a member of the Canadian National Under-18 team that participated in a three-game series against the United States in August 2011.

Richardson is the uncle of current Arizona Coyotes defenceman Jakob Chychrun.

In his youth, Luke played for the Ottawa West Golden Knights Junior B hockey team.

Fellow blueliner Dan Boyle also played for the team.

Luke Richardson is a Canadian professional ice hockey coach and former player who served as a defense for teams like Toronto Maple Leafs, Edmonton Oilers, Philadelphia Flyers, Columbus Blue Jackets, Tampa Bay Lightning, and Ottawa Senators.

He played a total of 1,417 NHL games, scoring 33 goals with 159 assists in the regular season.

Richardson was born on March 26, 1969, in Ottawa, Ontario. He was selected seventh overall by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 1987 NHL Entry Draft.

At the time, he was playing for the Petersborough Petes of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL).

Midway through his rookie NHL season, on January 6, 1988, Richardson was assaulted by Dino Ciccarelli of the Minnesota North Stars.

Ciccarelli was later pleaded guilty to battery and went onto serving one day in jail with some monetary fines.

Richardson remained regular on the Toronto Blueline until 1991 when he was sent to the Edmonton Oilers with some other stars in exchange for Grant Fuhr, Glenn Anderson, and Craig Berube.

He split his time between the Oilers, the Philadelphia Flyers, and the Columbus Blue Jackets.

It, however, was with the Flyers that he came closest to a Stanley Cup appearance in 2000 when the team lost 4-3 in the Eastern Conference Finals to the New Jersey Devils.

In the 2006-07 season, he started to play for the Tampa Bay Lightning.

For the Bays, he recorded 27 games, 3 assists, and 16 penalty minutes. In August 2007, he signed a one-year contract with his hometown Ottawa Senators.

A year later, he announced his retirement as a player.

He began his coaching career during the 2009-10 season for the Ottawa Senators serving as an assistant mentor to head coach, Cory Clouston.

He then chiefly helmed the Binghamton Senators of the AHL.

He was honored with the coach of the AHL Eastern Conference all-star team in 2012-13 after leading the Senators to the conference’s best record at the all-star break.

He then guided New York Islanders as an assistant coach before getting appointed by the Montreal Canadiens in a similar position to Claude Julien.

On June 19, 2021, he was promoted to the interim head coach slot in Canadiens’ game 3 of the Stanley Cup semifinals against the Vegas Golden Knights.
