The future of Brad Richards remained unclear on Thursday when the Dallas forward declined the Stars' request for him to waive the no-movement clause in his contract.

It's not known which team or teams may have been enquiring about Richards, who is eligible to become an unrestricted free-agent on July 1.

Richards, 31, scored 28 goals and 77 points in 72 games last season and has 220 goals and 716 points in 772 career games with the Stars and Tampa Bay Lightning.

There was speculation that Richards was going to be dealt near the trade deadline on Feb. 28, but Dallas chose to keep him at that point.
