Absolute tragedy, condolences to his family and friends. How does this happen to a guy who is only 28 and constantly sees some of the best doctors in the world?

concussions are very serious. He was one of the best enforcers I have seen since Probert. The NHL lost a great guy.

Wow. Definitely sad.

I wonder what happened?


IF it turns out to be suicide, I'd bet money post-concussion issues had something to do with it.

That's really too bad. My condolences to the family.

That's terrible news.

He was one of my favorite non-Wings and I loved watching his fights.

He's about my age, so that's pretty scary stuff.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

What a loss! Puts things in perspective that players are still human and games are just games. My thoughts and prayers are with the Boogaard family. :(

RIP Boogeyman. The NHL will miss guys like you.
Go rest high on that mountain, cause son your work on Earth is done. Go to Heaven a'shouting love for the Father and the Son. Ruslan Salei, Brad McCrimmon, Stefan Liv, Pavol Demitra, and the entire Lokomotiv team.

looks like we'll have to wait a couple of weeks to determine the cause of his tragic death :(

http://tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=365701

It may be weeks before authorities know exactly how and why New York Rangers enforcer Derek Boogaard died, although foul play is not immediately suspected. The Hennepin County Medical Examiner was conducting an autopsy Saturday. County spokeswoman Carol Allis said authorities probably wouldn't release results for at least two weeks.

Minneapolis police Sgt. Bill Palmer said authorities received a report of a man not breathing shortly before 6:15 p.m. Friday. Minneapolis fire officials were the first to arrive and determined he was dead.

Palmer said authorities do not suspect foul play at this point, but the police department's homicide unit and the medical examiner's office are both investigating. Palmer said the medical examiner will determine the final cause of death.

"I don't think we have any answers as to what happened or why it happened," Ron Salcer, Boogaard's agent, said Saturday.

Allis said in cases where there are no obvious signs of physical trauma or an obvious immediate cause of death, it can take time for authorities to receive results of laboratory tests. Allis added that the medical examiner's office doesn't anticipate that it will release preliminary autopsy findings until all results are in.

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?

...thats a sad list.

Don't remember seeing him play, I am sure I have against the Wings, but just don't recall. I do know that every off season, his name flew around LGW as someone Holland should get, so that tells me he was respected and that just means he was a good person. RIP Mr. Boogaard, tell Bobby Probert we all say Hi!

What horrific news :( I always dreamed of seeing him in a Winged Wheel. One of the few enforcers who's name on the roster list was enough to enforce the opposition without actually doing anything.

28 is far too young. What horrific news :(

I've been working all weekend, and while on my break I saw this. My thoughts and prayers go out to Boogaard's family. Regardless of people's opinions on his role in the game, he will be missed. Just a tragedy. Sad day in the hockey world. One of the few pure goons in the league. Although he was ferocious on the ice, i've heard nothing but great things about him off the ice. You will be missed, Derek.

He may not have been a good hockey player but damn I haven't heard one bad thing about this guy off the ice. I feel terrible for his family and friends. The hockey world just lost a great teammate and the world just lost an amazing human being.

Rest in peace boogy man :(

Boogaard's brain donated to Boston University

The family of the New York Rangers forward has donated his brain to Boston University Medical School as part of its ongoing study into head trauma among athletes.

All I can say is Bruin's fans should be ashamed of themselves. During the moment of silence before the Bolt's/B's game last night, a bunch of them were being loud and booing. Disrespectful and completely wrong. Have some damn class. :thumbdown:
