But for fun today, we take a trip down memory lane and look back at the notable "goons" in Wild history.
Derek BoogaardThere has been no more high profiled tough guy in Wild history than the late Derek Boogaard. He came on to the scene in the post lockout season of 2005-06, and spent the next five seasons in Minnesota. He racked up 544 penalty minutes in those five seasons, and was considered one of the better fighters in the league during that time. Injuries cut down Boogey's time here and he was let go following the 2009-10 season.
