Cheers to the Boogey Man

It was one year ago today, that former Wild enforcer Derek Boogaard was found dead in his Minneapolis apartment after taking a fatal mixture of pain killers and alcohol. Derek had just come off his first season playing for the New York Rangers (Registering his first goal after 5+ seasons of being held scoreless), following a 5 year stint as the Wild's top enforcer. Boogey was known for winning most of his fights from his shear size and ability th drop the gloves. But as we found out later, he had suffered greatly from all those fights. So today, we sit back and say "Cheers" to the memory of Derek Boogaard. And as I mentioned on twitter earlier today, he was taken from us far too soon.
