James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail confirmed it.

RIP Rick. Such a tragic loss. Thoughts are with you Jets fans.

If true, it's a shame he never got a chance to play for the Jets.

Rick Rypien was truly a fan favorite. Watching him many years a Manitoba Moose and a Vancouver Canucks I am deeply saddened by this news. I was very excited to watching him in a Jets uniform this upcoming season. My thoughts go out to his friends and family.

Never forgotten.

Just a note.... Anyone....ANYONE making ANY sort of off color comment or snarky remark in this thread will be met firmly and swiftly with punishment. In other words, you can pretty much count on a thread ban for sure, and possibly a forum ban. These are not things to joke about and make light of.

Great fighter and competitor. Watched the guy for years on the Moose and the Canucks... can't believe it's true.

Just awful.

Wow, I'm shocked. Just when things were looking up for him.

I don't know what to say.

Many personal issues. Not respectful to speak of them however.

Terrible news.

I'm glad his final team's city, even though he never played for the Jets, knows what kind of a team guy he was. If he had gone to any other team after the Canucks, he would have been just another new guy - I bet alot of people in Winnipeg love the Ripper.

To follow up on what Kevin said, there will be ZERO tolerance on any speculation regarding Rypien and the circumstances surrounding this tragic event.

Saw him play for years on the Moose. Was one of my favourites... Saw him play just this past year... Eerie to be honest...


Great player and fan favourite... Too damn soon.

Sad news that really puts a damper over anything.

I hope there's a ceremony at the season opener for him.
