Eric Stonestreet is a biiiig hockey fan, so he must've been so excited when that pesky lockout finally ended!

He was spotted on his way into the Staples Center to watch the LA Kings duke it out with the Vancouver Canucks.

Just look at that smile on his face! He's so happy that hockey is back.

We bet he's gonna go to every game now.

Though that smile might also be related to his mystery lady friend!

He only plays a gay man on Modern Family, in real life he's "openly straight." LOLz!

Some good hockey, a cute date and more hockey seems to be all Eric needs to be happy!

Lookin' good there, Mr. Stonestreet!

Hockey Player Rick Rypien Passes Away

Rick Rypien

Such sad news for the hockey community!

Winnipeg Jets forward Rick Rypien, who more famously played with the Vancouver Canucks for 6 years, passed away after an apparent suicide.

At just 27-years-old, he was found dead in his home on Monday and authorities have determined the circumstances to be a “non-suspicious sudden death.”

Although he left the Canucks to join the Winnipeg Jets as a free agent over the summer, the Vancouver organization had nothing but kind words, saying:

"It is with tremendous sadness that the Vancouver Canucks confirm the passing of Rick Rypien. Rick has been a beloved member of the Canucks’ family for the past six years. Rick was a great teammate and friend to our players, coaches and staff. We send our deepest condolences to the Rypien family at this most difficult time.”

Rick struggled with mental health issues throughout his career and even had to take a leave of absence from the team last November because of whatever personal demons he was facing. Unfortunately, it seems it may have been those personal demons that cut his life short.

Our heart goes out to the talent hockey player's friends and family during this difficult time and wish them the best as they deal with their loss. Rest in peace, Rick!
