Rick Rypien Passed Away

RCMP have said that Rick Rypien has been found dead in his Coleman, Alberta home on August 15th, 2011.  Rypien was only 27 years old and was excited to go to training camp for the Winnipeg Jets.

Rick Rypien was battling depression but was said to have been in a good place before his sudden death.  Rypien took two personal leaves from the Vancouver Canucks twice in the last three seasons.  Rypien wasn’t offered a new contract with the Canucks but was signed as a free agent to a one year, $700,000  deal with the Winnipeg Jets. 

Reports say that Rypien’s cause of death was suicide, I however can not confirm this.  My heart goes out to Rick Rypiens family and all the people affected by this tragic loss.

Vancouver Canucks 2011-2012 Schedule

The Vancouver Canucks released their 2011-2012 Regular Season Schedule today.  I was so excited to find out when the Toronto Maple Leafs would be coming back to Vancouver.  The Leafs will be playing in Vancouver on Saturday, February 18, 2012 at 4:00pm PDT.  They also play each other in Toronto on December 17th at 4:00 PM.

I am so excited to get tickets.  Now I just need to wait for them to go on sale and decide which jersey I will wear to the game.  Probably my Beauchemin jersey. 

GO LEAFS GO!!!!!!

Max Pacioretty Hit by Chara

The Montreal Canadiens beat the Boston Bruins last night, March 8th.  If you missed that then you also missed the huge hit by Bruins defencemen, Zdeno Chara.  Chara nailed Habs player, Max Pacioretty into the glass.  He was given a 5 minute major and a game misconduct.  The NHL felt that the hit was not intentional and no further disciplinary action will be taken.  Pacioretty is left with a fractured vertebrae and a severe concussion, he is sidelined indefinitely.


Updates:

  • Montreal police will conduct a criminal investigation into the on-ice hit that sent Habs forward Max Pacioretty to hospital with a broken vertebra and concussion.
  • Major NHL sponsor Air Canada threatened to withdraw its sponsorship unless the league moves to impose sanctions to reduce potential serious injuries.
