For sure. Just wondered if there was any. I don't know much about him. I know a lot of us are on edge with entire concussion thing going on. No matter what the reason, just horrible news. God bless the Rypien family.

Shocked and saddened. I LOVED watching him fight. Was really excited to be able to watch him again this season. This sucks.

Man I heard he had some personal issues but I never expected something like this...

Another terrible day for hockey regardless of who you're a fan of.

R.I.P. Rick Rypien.

No kidding... Especially with a fresh start in Winnipeg.


I hope he's honoured at the first game and the players wear a sticker on their helmets in remembrance.

Rick, as a fan of the Vancouver Canucks, hockey, and most of all, sportsmanship, I will remember you, and I'll never stop wearing your Canucks jersey you signed for me. Thoughts and prayers go out to the Rypien family.

Most passionate player the Canucks had for quite a while, and although it sometimes got him into trouble, I had hoped he never changed.

To Jets fans, I am sorry you won't get to see this awesome player in a Jets uniform. He will be greatly missed.

Very sad news. He had the potential to be a real poster boy in Winnipeg being a former Moose and all.

Sorry for your loss guys and my thoughts and prayers are with the family.

I had been a fan of his since he joined the Moose, he never gave up ever during a shift. Rypien always played bigger than he was and never backed down, not even to Hal Gill!

I had the chance to meet him this spring and he was a great dude, this is a very tough day for hockey.

I had planned to customize a #11 Jets jersey and still plan to do so now in his memory.

Conflicting information. The Globe and Mail article states "Local RCMP told The Globe and Mail on Monday night that the death was not suspicious."

No matter what, we'll miss him.

I can't erase the image of Rypien being interviewed on CBC during the intermission of the Moose-Abbotsford game, it was the fourth game since his return.

He had a genuine smile on his face, he seemed like he was truly enthused about playing hockey again, and he talked about how grateful he was that the Moose had given him a second chance. He just had the look of a guy who had put his demons behind him, and was focused on doing something he loved.

"Not suspicious" implies that there was no third party involved, ie. he wasn't murdered.

Got to watch Rick growing up while he played with the Regina Pats. He was never the most talented guy on the ice, but nobody ever outworked him. Played with his heart on his sleeve and never backed down from anybody. There was never any doubt why he was the captain on that team. Was really looking forward to seeing him pull on that Jets jersey.

RIP Rick

I don't even know what too say... Since his first shift with the Moose he became one of my favorite players and I followed every step of his career this is shocking.
