    Derek Boogaard found dead in Minneapolis apt



    Derek Boogaard, dubbed the “Boogie Man” during his days policing the ice at Xcel Energy Center in a Wild uniform, was found dead Friday in his Minneapolis apartment by members of his family.

    The New York Rangers enforcer was 28.
    “Derek was an extremely kind and caring individual,” Rangers General Manager Glen Sather said in a statement. “He was a very thoughtful person, who will be dearly missed by all those who knew him. We extend our deepest sympathies to his family, friends and teammates during this difficult time.”
    Boogaard is survived by his mother, Joanne, and father, Len, his younger brothers Aaron and Ryan and younger sister, Krysten.
    Boogaard, a fan favorite in Minnesota, had 54 NHL fights and amassed 544 penalty minutes in five seasons with the Wild.

    A good possibility. My money is on concussion-related causes (possibly a brain aneurysm), and if that's the case this is going to add some rocket fuel to the head hits/fighting debates.

    Shitty situation all around, 28 is too young to go. Me and a few buddies were at the Sens game last December when he got his last concussion. Matt Carkner rocked him with a punch and hit him with a judo throw.
