Oh my god. I wonder if it's in any way related to his injuries, particularly the concussion.

My heart goes out to his family, friends and teammates. Rest in peace.

It could be credible, but I want to see an article or something. Twitter accounts can get hacked....

Better source? Russo knew Boogaard really well

I got several texts from Derek in the past few days. He told me yesterday he had just met with a PR firm in LA to join Twitter

He was also ecstatic that both his brothers, Aaron and Ryan, were going to be in Minneapolis staying with him this week

Michael Russo is legitimate.

I can't believe this, holy ****... any details on causation? I haven't found anything online on Twitter or anywhere just yet.

I'm saddened to hear #Rangers Derek Boogaard was found dead early this morning. A formal announcement is expected as early as tonite.

Yeah, he pretty much said he wasn't coming back...or playing again. But this is certainly shocking. Brain related...overdose...something else? 28 is way too young.

What absolutely awful news.

Boogey was a good man.

I just hope it was concussion-related.

I am so sorry to hear that and wish my best to all of his family and friends.

RIP Boogey, go kick the **** out of some other dead ********.
