He was an up-and-coming all-star player who many said was destined for greatness.

Police have found New York Rangers left wing Derek Boogaard, 28, dead in his Minneapolis, Minnesota apartment on May 13.According to the Daily News, the scene is under intense investigation by the medical examiner’s office.

As of right now, medical officials don’t suspect foul play was involved. But they’re waiting for final autopsy results to determine the cause of his death.

Hailing from the Twin Cities in Minnesota, Derek recently signed a four-year only contract with the Rangers. Though he only played 22 games for the New York team, sports aficionados say he was destined for long-term success with the NHL. His tenure came to an early halt during a game fight on Dec. 9, which left him with a concussion which never healed enough to let him return to the ice.

Funeral arrangements have not been made yet. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Derek’s family!

So sad that the boogeyman died… Far too young. I’m wondering if all of those fights contributed to his death. He’ll be missed by plenty.
