wow.

A tough SOB, but from what I understand he was one of those guys that fans latched onto as a good guy.

RIP Boogieman.

Certainly sucks. Awful news. His family did agree to have his brain sent away to be analyzed for conucssion studies...very smart on their behalf.

Rangers just aren't having luck with deaths...Roman Lyashenko, Alexei Cherepanov and now Derek Boogaard.


Such a shame...young guy too.

According to Hennepin County Medical Examiner, Derek Boogaard's cause of death is mixed alcohol and oxycodone toxicity

Sadly, it probably started with him taking the meds for real pain relief from an injury.....then he got hooked on em. All too common amongst pro sports players I imagine.
