Wild Will Honor Boogaard November 27th

Source: IGossip
 I hope eventually this season the Rangers follow in the footsteps of the Minnesota Wild and hold some type of tribute for Derek Boogaard. I will say I'm surprised the Rangers didn't do much of anything to honor Boogaard at their home opener. I mean after all, he was a part of the Rangers organization for a season and not only was he a teammate to many of the current Rangers, he was also a friend.

According to a post on the team website, the Wild will honor The Boogey Man on November 27th:
While at the game, all fans in attendance will receive a Derek Boogaard poster featuring a re-production of a painting of "The Boogeyman" by sports artist Robert Blehert. They can also visit a Boogaard tribute in the main concourse near Gate 3 and adjacent to a similar tribute to former Wild player Sergei Zholtok.
The team will also unveil a commemorative Boogaard tribute T-shirt and puck along with releasing a limited number of Boogaard autographed items and game worn jerseys on November 27. Proceeds from the sale of these items will benefit Defending The Blue Line.

We miss ya big guy!
