Let's just hope that it wasn't NHL related

My guess would be enlarged heart/heart disease or drugs. If you could die from concussions NFL players, boxers and MMA fighters would be dropping like flies.

It doesnt matter what the cause was. The tragedy of it, to his family and friends and those NHL fans with a heart is overwhelming.

People may judge him if the cause was something other than natural causes, but the tragedy doesnt get any less. No parent should ever have to bury a child. that's what hits me.

Toxicology came back=oxycodone and alcohol, accidental overdose. The US really needs to do something about these pain pills that people ingest like candy these days.

Yup.. it is amazing that something like weed is demonized yet pills are the status quo. Meanwhile, opiates and other powerful prescription drugs are killing people or making them zombies.

Very sad to hear, though.

I still don't understand why people are so compelled to combine alcohol and opiates. That's a textbook toxicology no-no. Very unfortunate.

The alcohol intensifies the "buzz". It is very possible (and probably likely) that Boogaard had gotten to the point where the oxycodone was ineffective against residual or chronic pain like it used to be - if you take it long enough, it's easy to build up a tolerance to it to the point where the dose that doesn't do a whole lot for you would probably put someone else in a coma.

That's why you don't mix alcohol with opiates . . . terrible.

I feel the exact same way. A lot of these meds are awful. I have two friends that have died from oxycodone.

... Substitute that with "people have to be a little more responsible and educated individually about what they are putting into their bodies" and I think that would be closer to curing the problem.

Speaking as someone who had a history of abusing pills and booze this makes me very sad. It's all fun at the start but very soon the party just isn't good without the combination. Then you're combining at home. The buzz needs to constantly be intensified and soon this happens. Doctors are nothing but pill pushers. I'm talking every doctor. They know what is going on.

Thank god I had people who care about me. In his case he was probably depressed and didn't have enough people close enough to tell it how it needs to be. Too many people probably along for the ride.

Unfortunately, I don't think the public is smart enough to control their intakes. They need to be controlled and so does big pharm and doctors receiving kickbacks for how many prescriptions they write.
