A Chapter Turns: Minnesota Wild Enforcer Derek Boogaard Signs with New York Rangers
It must be saying something when a guy who hasn't scored a goal in 4 years signs somewhere else as a free agent and it impacts that former team. Former Minnesota Wild enforcer Derek Boogaard officially became a part of the New York Rangers last week when he signed a 4 year, $6.5 million deal. Derek Boogaard became a household name with Minnesota Wild fans, as he racked up 544 penalty minutes in 5 seasons with the team. His merchandise was usually a top 3 seller on the team and it's accurate to say he was obviously a fan favorite. Even though he only scored 2 goals and 12 assists in 255 games, his presence was felt with his rough play and ability to protect the finesse players. As a Minnesota Wild fan, we'll miss you "Boogey."
