RIP Derek Boogaard

Sad to hear about Boogaard passing away at his apartment in Minneapolis. Always a nice guy when I ran into him in Stillwater.

Sorry for the wrong forum but more look at this one.

This is horrible news for the hockey world. My condolences to his family and team mates.

He has been out for 54 games with a concussion. Although the autopsy results have not been released, I think the hockey community needs to consider that the side effects from the concussion may have contributed to his death. Concussions can cause depression, and in some cases results in death. I hope this is not the case, but if it is, the NHL and USAH needs to take a close look at how they deal with these injuries.
