Storylines 1

Derek Boogaard, a shy over-sized man, learns to use his fists to make it to the National Hockey League and becomes a renowned hockey enforcer. The hulking 6'7" and 270 pounds Boogaard becomes known as the Boogeyman, and rarely loses a fight while playing for the Minnesota Wild and the New York Rangers. He gets addicted to painkillers from years of damage, and is found dead at age 28 after mixing prescription drugs with booze.
