Derek Boogaard-RIP

Stats are cold. We know that Derek Boogaard was 6'7", wieghed 258 lbs, scored just three times in 277 NHL games and accumulated 589 minutes in penalties. We also know that he was often injured, the last one being a concussion.

He was also a son, a young man who was very charitable and someone who will be missed for the kind of a person he was. No child shoulld die before their parents die.

Right now the cause of death is unknown and will be decided by an autopsy. Whatever the reason it is a tragedy. Our deepest condolences to the Boogaard family and may the good Lord bless and console them in their hour of grief.

May God have mercy and love for Derek Boogaard. RIP!
