Video: Keith Yandle honors 8 year-old bombing victim Martin Richard

Originally posted on ProHockeyTalk:

The bombing at the Boston Marathon hit home for the Boston Bruins as we’ve seen during the past week, but it’s been hard to watch for players from the area away from the city as well. One player in particular is Phoenix defenseman Keith Yandle.

Last night before the Coyotes’ 3-2 shootout win over Chicago, Yandle skated in warmups wearing a jersey paying tribute to 8 year-old victim Martin Richard.

Yandle spoke with Fox Sports Arizona’s Todd Walsh about showing such outward support for the victims and his thoughts on watching the capture of lead suspect Dzhokar Tsarnaev.
