From the sounds of things, Rick Rypien is ready to make his return… with the Manitoba Moose.
From Ken Wiebe:
There was no other wheeling and dealing for the Manitoba Moose as the American Hockey League roster freeze came to pass on Monday.
But as the list was released Tuesday morning, there was an interesting development. Forward Rick Rypien was among those on the in-residence players who can be used when the Moose find themselves in an emergency situation — as they do now with any combination of three or more players out of the lineup due to injury, recall or suspension.
