James Engquist, 28, the Mendota Heights resident who was grabbed while in the stands by Vancouver Canucks player Rick Rypien during a game against the Minnesota Wild Tuesday, today received a telephone call from NHL commissioner Gary Bettman apologizing with an offer of dinner and tickets to another game.
Engquist said he appreciated what he called a “classy” gesture by Bettman, but is disappointed that Rypien received just a six-game suspension from the NHL and the Canucks at $25,000 fine.
