In Memory of Rick Rypien: 1984 - 2011

Saw this on the Winnepeg board http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=969133

Man, hope this is not true... waiting for sources...

Mod Edit: Confirmed by Mirtle via Twitter

Let's keep the lifestyle speculation out of it, please.

like they said, this should be locked until it's confirmed.

His facebook page has a bunch of RIP's on it..

http://www.facebook.com/pages/Rick-Rypien/52217345154

Looks like most of the people commenting are from his hometown. Doesn't look good.

something weird.. just as this was breaking, Bob McKenzie posted on twitter that Rypien plus Bogosian had been traded to Montreal for Kostitsyn and Tinordi. Now he's removed the tweet.

Assuming that's his facebook page, Canucks management better put together a montage before the season opener. I don't care if he's a Jet now, he was a fan favourite here.

Rest in Peace.

Closed until confirmed. (Let's pray it isn't)

We've received new disturbing information but cannot yet confirm. I've been tweeting Bob McKenzie - no response yet.

Confirmed by James Mirtle (via the police). Rick Rypien was found dead in his home in Alberta.

RIP Rick. He gave Canucks fan some great memories. Too early to speculate so I won't.
