Autopsies take a couple weeks -- I heard this morning that foul play isn't suspected, but anytime someone dies suddenly tests need to be conducted. Not to hijack the forum, but what about the Kenyan runner who jumped from a balcony and died???

Geez, I guess the boogie man was still that Derek stole his name. I hope they research this but i wouldnt be surprised that concussions or brain damage are the issue like with bob probert.

61 fights in 6 years, and hockey players are prone to suffer a lot of concussions. Only 1 is needed to cause problems later. The brain is very fragile and allows some movement, and a concussion occurs when the brain literally moves or shifts in the head. On a side note, my dad a couple years ago experienced seizures (which do not run in the family), and one of the first things the doctor asked was, "Whether any head trauma ever occurred"? My dad was in a serious near death car accident at 18 years old, and it could have been a result of that or other injuries he suffered when in Basic Training or Sports.

its crazy the consequences your past can affect your future esp head trauma. A lot of athletes dont realize it, hell the NHL doesnt even realize it. Stupid Gary BUTTman

He played on the local junior team and was a favourite of the fans, he was quite the brawler then and fun to watch.
Alcohol and prescription drugs... hopefully a very sad mistake. NHL and the fans are going to miss you Boogaard, RIP
