Rick Rypien Goes After Minnesota Wild Fan After Getting Misconduct Penalty

Rick Rypien Goes After Minnesota Wild Fan After Getting Misconduct Penalty Hockey is a violent game. Players are encouraged to skate into each other at high speeds and sometimes square up for a good old-fashioned sparring session.

Players, however, are encouraged to not attack fans on their way to the dressing room.

Unfortunately for Vancouver Canucks forward Rick Rypien, he forgot that last part.

Rypien was engaged in a scuffle with Minnesota’s Brad Staubitz, and for his efforts, he was given a 10-minute misconduct, among other penalties. On his way to the locker room, Rypien decided to take out his frustrations on a clapping Wild fan.

In the words of the immortal Denis Lemieux, you don’t do that. You stupid when you do that.

Watch the video of the soon-to-be-suspended Rypien below.
