Sad stuff. Just yesterday a Left Tackle for Alabama named Aaron Douglas was found dead in Jacksonville, FL. Kid had some problems and there's rumors that it was drug related but no official word yet.

Either sad to see anyone, let alone someone in their 20s, being found dead.

28 is way, way, way too young to kick off. What a loss. My condolences.

RIP Derek.

Being from NY and having the Wild as my 2nd or 3rd favorite team I got to see a lot of this guy. He will be missed. I really wonder what the hell happened...

Very sad. The Boogey Man could sure drop the gloves. Matt Carkner's right hand put him out for the season (which was surprising in it's own right), and now his life ends tragically at such a young age.

Makes me sad. He was a great player and from what I've heard a great person as well.

Always makes you think when someone dies at such a young age. I can't help but think about something like stimulus, steroids, alcohol, medicines and of course the effect of those brain injuries. You just don't die in 28 unless there's something really wrong. And I don't like the fact that people die because of some sport. Hockey is not bigger than life even if it sounded a cool thing to say.

R.I.P Derek "The Boogeyman" Boogaard.

Sergei Zholtok. Also, I recall one player commiting a suicide. I think he was from Eastern Europe and maybe played for the Rangers, can't remember his name.

edit: Found this: List of ice hockey players who died during their playing career
edit2: The Ranger player from Easter Europe was Roman Lyashenko. Why always the Rangers?
