Alright everyone, not a lot of details yet...but a HUGE shocker on this Friday night!! Derek Boogaard was just found dead in his apartment in Minneapolis. They haven't told us what happened yet, all the public knows is of Boogaards passing. He spent most of his short career playing with the Minnesota Wild from 2005-2010 and then played for the New York Rangers from 2010 until 2011.
"Derek was an extremely kind and caring individual," Rangers president and general manager Glen Sather said. "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."
This is truly very very sad news!
My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends!
Details to come soon!
