CBSSports.com: Mark Rypien's cousin found dead at age 27

When I saw the headline this morning, I wondered whether he was related to Mark.

Apparently the Canucks had been concerned about Rick Rypien for some time. The Vancouver Sun's Canucks beat writer wrote a short piece last November about the team's concerns:

NHL enforcer IMO takes the most mental toll on any pro athlete.

As an 18 year old kid, you are drafted because of you skill set (skating, stick handling, etc.). Then you are asked to take on a role which minimizes these skills, but at the same time can make you popular with the fans.

See John Kordic, Bob Probert, et al.

Both Kordic & Probert had reputations as fighters BEFORE they came to the NHL. Probert could actually play the game though.

The Rypien family is quite talented. Mark Rypien's daughter is also a athelete in the LFL.

The LFL is making some solid headlines today with the news that Angela Rypien – daughter of former Super Bowl MVP Mark Rypien – is gonna be suiting up as the signal caller for the Seattle Mist.

There’s not a whole lot of news out there on Angela’s accolades as a QB. Guess the pics are all we really have to assess her potential as a fantasy (LFL player) in 2011.

We know you’re looking for pics of the new Mist QB, and we’ve collected the ones we can. Have some others to share? Drop your links in the comments below.
