Boogaard played in 277 NHL games between the Rangers and Minnesota Wild. He last played on December 9th, and missed the rest of his first season in New York with a concussion he suffered after a fight with Ottawa's Matt Carkner.
Known as "The Boogey Man" for being one of the league's toughest fighters, Boogaard dropped the gloves 61 times during his six-year NHL career. He also scored 3 goals and added 13 assists.
Sad story. Probably concussion-related.ReplyDelete
