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.
