Bettman Calls Fan Who Was Grabbed By Rypien

from Charley Walters of the Pioneer Press,

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.
