R.I.P. Derek Boogaard (June 23, 1982 - May 13, 2011)
“I remember when he first broke in, every day he came in to work hard, and he wanted to get better. He wanted to make it to the NHL and prove every person out there that said he couldn’t make it wrong. He worked hard every every day on and off the ice. He was one of those guys that was the first on and last off, had that type of attitude to get better, and obviously he succeeded.” -Dwayne Roloson (x)
