Meet Ryp – The Cutest Member of The Canucks Roster!
The Vancouver Canucks are proud to partner with BC Guide Dogs to sponsor a litter of puppies and raise a service dog this season. After training is completed, this Canucks pup will work with a visually impaired client, a child with autism, or a veteran/First Responder living with OSI-PTSD.
Service dogs play a vital role in our community by improving the quality of life for many, including assisting in mobility, lowering stress, and increasing happiness. But they are in high demand. The Canucks pup is a special opportunity to help meet this need and make a positive impact in our community.
To us, the name Ryp represents the ultimate teammate. Ryp is courageous, kind, determined and supportive. He is a helper. We know Ryp will make a tremendous impact on the life of his forever teammate following his training.
A hockey hero, a son, a brother, an uncle, a teammate, a friend – former Canuck Rick Rypien meant so much to so many. He accomplished a great deal in a short amount of time, and has left a legacy of support that has helped countless fans around the word through the Hockey Talks program.
