Rick Rypien suspended indefinitely by NHL for fight with fan

Vancouver Canucks forward Rick Rypien has been suspended indefinitely, pending a hearing, by the NHL for fighting with a Minnesota Wild fan Tuesday night.

The fight, which occurred late in the second period of Minnesota's 6-2, followed a fight between Rypien and Brad Staubitz of the Wild. Rypien, a cousin of former Redskins quarterback Mark Rypien, was headed down the tunnel that leads to the locker room when the fight with the fan took place. The fan later was moved to a seat along the glass.

The fan wasn't asked to leave because he was fighting with Rypien...

He was asked to leave his seats so they could clean up after the fan crapped himself when Rypien went after him!
