The Vancouver Canucks will honor Rick Rypien with a video tribute prior to Tuesday's game against the New York Rangers.
Rypien, who played with the Canucks, committed suicide in the offseason after struggling with depression. He was 27.
The Canucks will also make a $50,000 donation in Rypien's name to BC Children's Hospital Foundation.
"Rick Rypien was dedicated to helping young people and those in need,” said TC Carling, executive director of the Canucks for Kids Fund. “Through this partnership with BCCHF, BCMHAS and the support of the Vancouver Canucks, we can work together to ensure Rick's passion to help those in need is well served.
The Canucks players were given a preview of the video tribute on Monday.
Rypien played six seasons with Vancouver before signing with Winnipeg in the summer.
