The Death of a Fighter


Not sure if many of you know that last Friday Derek Boogaard, 28 year old left winger for the New York Rangers, was found dead in his apartment. He had suffered a bad concussion in December and hadn't been well enough to play since then, but his cause of death has yet to be determined.

Though Boogaard was known for his on-ice fighting...what people might not have known was his fight for our troops behind the scenes. Derek was a staunch supporter of 'Defending the Blue Line'. (DTBL is a Minnesota nonprofit aimed at "helping children of armed service members stick with hockey programs.")

Their Mission Statement:
Defending the Blue Line is a 501 (c)(3) non profit organization created by soldiers with the spirit of keeping hockey alive for the children of our nations military heroes.

"The Rangers said Tuesday that the family "would like to see Derek's legacy live on by supporting military kids and the game he loved."

Last season he started "Boogaard's Booguardians," where he hosted military members and their families at all Rangers home games.

Rest in Peace Boogeyman....we appreciate your fight on and off the ice.
