This past summer Rick Rypien lost his battle with clinical depression. Tonight the Vancouver Canucks will pay respect to Rick Rypien and his family will be there at centre ice. The Canucks have also set up website to help youn people deal with depression and other mental health issues. This will be Rypien’s legacy, funded by a $50,000 donation from the Canucks. Let’s hope this can help shed some light on an illness many suffer from in silence.
RIP Rypper. You’re in a happier place now. Our thoughts are with his friends and family.
