A member of the Brandon Wheat Kings and Winnipeg Rangers of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League, Richardson was a 5-foot-9, 175-pound winger who took part in both the 1961 Allan and Memorial Cup.

During the 1960-61 season, Dave Richardson was a member of four different teams; the Winnipeg Rangers of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League, the Seattle Totems of the Western Hockey League, the Winnipeg Maroons which took part in the Allan Cup and the Edmonton Oil Kings which took part in the Memorial Cup.

Richardson joined the Los Angeles Blades of the Western Hockey League at the beginning of the 1961-62 season before becoming a member of the International Hockey League's Fort Wayne Komets, where he won the Gary F. Longman Memorial Trophy as the IHL's Top Rookie.

Following a successful season with the Komets, Richardson was on the move again, this time with the Sudbury Wolves of the Eastern Professional Hockey League, before making his National Hockey League debut the next season. During the 1963-64 season, Richardson was a member of the New York Rangers, where in 34 games he would account for three goals and an assist. Although he played in 34 games with the Rangers, Richardson would also see action with the American Hockey League's Baltimore Clippers.

Splitting the 1964-65 season between the Rangers, the Clippers and the St. Paul Rangers of the Central Professional Hockey League, Dave Richardson would become a member of the Chicago Black Hawks after he was traded by the New York during the off-season. Richardson would play three games with the Black Hawks during the 1965-66 season, while spending the majority of the year with the American Hockey League's Buffalo Bisons and the St. Louis Braves of the Central Professional Hockey League before returning to the Bisons for the 1966-67 season.

In the summer of 1967, Richardson was claimed by the Minnesota North Stars from the Chicago Black Hawks in the expansion draft, and was shortly after traded to the Detroit Red Wings. When the 1967-68 season began, Dave Richardson found himself with the Memphis-Fort Worth of the Central Professional Hockey League before playing in his first and only game with the Red Wings.

1968-69 meant another change of scenery for Richardson as he joined the San Diego Gulls of the Western Hockey League. Fortunate to have also spent the entire 1969-70 season with the Gulls, Richardson would step away from the game in 1970-71 before returning in 1971-72 with the St. Boniface Mohawks of the CCHL, where he would spend the next two seasons.

Dave Richardson would play one more season in 1973-74 with the CCHL's Warroad Lakers before calling it a career. In 45 career National Hockey League games, Richardson would register 5 points on 3 goals and 2 assists.
