'The Boogeyman' Found Dead

I know a lot of us came to dislike the guy intently for his on-ice antics, but condolences to the family of Derek Boogaard, who was found dead in his Minneapolis apartment today.

I also hated him as a player but that was his job, to be a hated player. Very shocking to hear, condolences to his family.

A person I follow on Twitter said "Wow R.I.P Boogeyman" a few minutes before everyone started Tweeting it. I was puzzled as to what he was talking about; then I kept F5'n Twitter's search page.

Literally a "wow" moment for me.

My sympathies to family and friends.

I always liked Boogaard and had a respect for how he filled out his role.

If theres a need for a tough in heaven maybe he can get that gig.

sad news.

RIP Boogyman.....way too young

There are likely only 4 causes for a seemingly healthy young pro athlete:
1) Heart attack/failure
2) brain aneurysm
3) suicide.....but for some reason i just cant see it being this
4) drug overdose

R.I.P. Like others have said, you may not have liked him as a player, but you have to respect him, sounded like he was always a class act in his community too. Regardless of any of that, 28 is just too young. It's these stories that make you feel fragile...
