Phoenix Coyotes defenseman Keith Yandle has been wearing a tribute on his skates ever since the Boston Marathon bombings, but on Saturday night before their game against the Chicago Blackhawks, he chose to step it up.  In honor of Martin Richard, the 8-year-old that passed away from the bombings, Yandle decided to wear a special jersey for warmups in his honor.  Yandle is normally #3, but chose #8 in honor of Martin’s age.  This is one of the best tributes I have seen thus far, and I have to believe it will inspire others to follow in his foot steps.
