Derek Boogaard Found Dead

I read the news this morning with incredibly deep sadness: Derek Boogaard was found dead in his Minneapolis apartment last night.  Boogaard, 28 years old and hands-down the best tough guy Minnesota professional hockey ever had (including the tough guys of the North Stars), is gone. 

No word yet on the cause, but regardless of what's found, it won't mitigate the sadness of the news. 

When he left the Wild last year, I wrote a small article about him and his dominance on the ice.  You can find that article here. 

RIP, number 24.  On behalf of hockey fans everywhere, we will miss you.
