When those closest to Yanick Dupre speak of his life, it’s the person, not the player that dominates the conversations.
It’s been over 10 years since Dupre, the 50th overall selection of the Philadelphia Flyers, succumbed to leukemia….
“He was a lot of fun to be around,” said Eric Lindros, who played alongside Dupre in Philadelphia. “He was always entertaining. He was also the type of person who stood up for what he believed in.
“I remember how fired up he’d get when we’d play in Montreal. He always loved to play there!”
