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

Apr 21, 2013, 10:46 AM EDT

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.

    Guess Charles Barkley was wrong about athletes NOT being role models for kids.

    Thanks, Mr. Yandle. He was also the one to write Pray for Boston on his skates. 100% class.
    Can he use or sell the proceeds from that jersey to help the Richards family? Wife & daughter both lost limbs and it’s going to be a long road to recovery for everyone.
