The manhunt for the suspects behind the Boston Marathon bombings might be over, but the effects are still being felt by those who hold Boston close to their heart.

One of those people is Keith Yandle. The Coyotes defenseman hails from Boston, and he decided to honor the memory of one of the victims on Saturday night. Martin Richard was just eight years old when he was killed in the bombings, and Yandle paid tribute to Richard with his warmup jersey.
