We lost a heart and soul warrior who will always be remembered as one of the most fearless Canucks.  May we all take a moment to remember Rick and support mental health initiatives like Mind Check, Hockey Talks and Let's Talk so that others may reach out and get the help they need.  No one should be ripped away from us at this early age.  We'll always have you in our hearts, Rick.


Well said Deb. Rest In Peace Rypper

I'll never forget listening to a game on the radio and Tom Larscheid was describing a fight that Rypper just had.  "It kinda looked like Rypien was in trouble for a second there but then BOOM!"


I still miss him!  I'm glad people haven't forgotten him!

I never knew this man personally but remembering his courage and strength helped me through some really dark times. Kept him in my heart and mind throughout my fight. RIP Rick.


I also need to give a shout out to a couple of people from these forums who have helped me as well. I am truly grateful and you've helped me a lot more than you probably realize. From the bottom of my heart. Thank you (you know who you are).
