Playing careerEdit

Demén-Willaume began his junior hockey career with Frölunda HC in the J18 Allsvenskan in 2001. By the 2003–04 season Demén-Willaume played regularly in the J20 SuperElit and was seleted to the Swedish World U18 Championship team in 2004. Richard was then selected by the Colorado Avalanche 154th overall in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.

In the 2004–05 season, Demén-Willaume posted the best plus/minus (+39) in the J20 SuperElit. He also made his professional debut with Frölunda HC in the Elitserien, playing in 9 regular season games and one playoff game. After securing a regular roster spot with Frölunda in the 2005–06 season, Richard then left for North America attending the Colorado Avalanche training camp for the 2006–07 season.

Demén-Willaume was hit by injury and was assigned to semi-pro league affiliate, the Arizona Sundogs of the CHL. Appearing in only 9 games with the Sundogs, Richard then returned to Sweden. In the 2007–08 season, Demén-Willaume played in the HockeyAllsvenskan after he signed with Rögle BK. Richard helped promote the team to the Elitserien for the first time in 12 years for the 2008–09 season.

In the 2009–10 season, his third with Rögle, Richard played in only 12 games before he was released and signed for the rest of the year by Hockey Allsvenskan side, the Malmö Redhawks on January 28, 2010.[1] After playing 13 games with the Redhawks to end the season, Richards option of an additional year did not come to fruition and he signed a one-year contract with fellow Allsvenskan side Borås HC on July, 9, 2010.[2]
