He gave Canucks fans something to cheer about when our team was frankly really boring to watch. He clearly had a lot of personal stuff to deal with but hopefully he is at peace now.

RIP Rypien...you'll always be a Canuck in my eyes.

Pure speculation for now. We won't know for a bit.

News1130 is saying suicide now though.

This was not a good summer for former Regina Pats, first Boogaard and now Rypien.

Always a fan of Rick. May he be in a better place.

I'm stunned!!!!

This saddens me so much as a Canuck fan! He had so many personal problems that it seems he may have just had enough



One of my favorite fights by Ripper



And his best assist on Darcy Hordichuk goal!

God dammit, that's not how the way to go out

I guess his demons finally got him, I wish he just straighten it out...if there was a crying need for help he should've got it. Dammit. Sadden..

And it seemed like he'd managed to turn the corner with his issues. So sad.

Thanks to everyone who messaged me with confirmation before this thread was reopened. I appreciate it.

This is a tough one. I've always been a fan of the underdog and Rick Rypien was defintely that. Damn this sucks. No words.

RIP Rick, terrible news. Iam just an hour away from the Pass on the BC side..my nephew interviewed Rick several times for the local paper.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Rick's family and friends.

RIP, Rick...
I was really hoping that he had gotten past his personal issues and was ready to embrace his return to the NHL. It's such a sad story.

If only he could've gotten support in his time of most need.
