Watch: Vancouver Canucks Rick Rypien Tribute Video

Prior to the start of tonight’s game against the New York Rangers, the Vancouver Canucks had a video presentation honoring the life and times of Rick Rypien.

Rypien passed away this summer at his home in Alberta at the age of 27.

In addition to the video, the Canucks honored Rypien’s legacy with a $50,000 donation for a website designed to help young people deal with depression and other mental-health issues.

The Canucks also wore a commemorative patch for the game — “Ryp 37” — that Jason wrote about earlier.
