A very special night in memory of former Captain Rick Rypien

Tonight will be a special night for the Regina Pats organization. Earlier in the summer, former Captain, Rick Rypien passed away. It was one of many tragic moments for the hockey world but one that affected the Regina Pats very deeply. Rick’s mother Shelly will be in attendance and will drop the puck before the game between the Pats and the Cougars.

Tonight, the hockey club is also proud to rename their “Unsung Hero Award” award the “Rick Rypien Award” because he best exemplified hard work not just on the ice, but also what he meant to his teammates and all the work that Rick did in the community.

“In memory of a person who was the epitome of what we want our players to be, it is MY Honour and Privilege to announce that we will be renaming the Regina Pats Unsung Hero award in the Name of former Regina Pat Rick Rypien.” Regina Pats President, Brent Parker continues, “It is an honour that he earned through his commitment, dedication and selflessness. We all miss him dearly but through this award he will continue to have an impact on our organization.”

The ceremony will take place before tonight’s game between the number four team in the country, your Regina Pats and the Prince George Cougars. The Cougars are making their bi-annual trip to Regina and it will be the only chance for fans to see Oilers 2010 second round pick, defenceman Martin Marincin and former Pat, now Cougar Captain, Cody Carlson.

Tickets are available at any Ticketmaster location across Regina, for more information headwww.ticketmaster.ca or call 543-7800. Puck drops at 7pm with the broadcast on 620 CKRM kicking off with the pregame show at 6:35.

I've been trying to think about...

how to add more content to TheBlueliner but I'm not sure what I want to add here. I keep on saying to check back in the near future but I just never get back here. I have a couple of other things going on and I hope that I have more time to focus on things that I can put here. Seeing as Twitter is my main source I'll start embedding my tweets here. Earlier in the year, Rob Vanstone did a story on me for the Leader-Post which I'll share here: As far back as 41-year-old Kevin Shaw can remember, he has been fascinated with the @WHLPats — as evidenced by his extensive collection https://t.co/UD8JrxQSwG #WHL — Regina Leader-Post (@leaderpost) February 7, 2020 Some of my regular daily Tweets include Pats Alumni and their birthdays. I usually write a small biography on each player that had birthdays. July 11th's @WHLPats alumni birthdays...
