This thread will probably get locked until there is a truth to this rumor, but someone posted on CP that Rick Rypien has commited suicide. Not exactly the type of thread you just make up either.

Horrible news if true.

Do you believe everything you read without some source?

There's not even a link yet or source to this yet and you're already starting with the 'sad face'??

Wow. As much as I'm hoping for this to be false it doesn't look good from judging by his facebook. Really hope it's not true.

Tweets from a guy known as @Mr_TomJ (he is followed by Jason Botchford):

Actually, my friend is friends with him, and her FB is RIP. Maybe. RT @TravisHilli: Rumour that Rick Rypien died... Anyone confirm?


Sounds as though Rick Rypien hung himself. Brutal. Hard time for his family. #Canucks #NHL

His FB has a bunch of messages on it saying RIP. A lot of people are from his hometown according to hfboards. Again, this doesn't confirm anything but still worrying.

I can't find any info about this outside of hockey message boards.

One would think this would have been reported somewhere.

I hope this is a prank.

Well, if it's true, it's terrible news....i'll wait for some kind of official announcement, rather than someone's sister's ex.
