To Shane at DTBL: Tamy and I would like to send you our deepest sympathies about the loss of Derek. You introduced me to him last summer during a met and greet tour at the 133rd. He was such a genuine person. We had many laughs that afternoon. He was a good man; a great ambassador to the sport and to the DTBL foundation. We will sadly miss him.   Rich & Tamy Bachelor and Family

In Memory of Derek Boogaard....you will truly be missed. RIP Boogeyman!   Amanda Power

I'm the fan of another team but saw enough of Boogaard to make me really respect him as a player and become a fan of his. After his tragic passing, I also learned about his work with Defending the Blue Line and came to respect him for his work with this cause. This is just my small way of saying "rest in peace Derek" and that many out there will miss you and the work you did.   Alexander Segovia

In memory of the “Boogieman” whom I will always fondly remember watching during his early playing days, first with the original Louisiana Icegators and later with the Houston Aeros. A first-class gentleman, to be sure. The Rangers, Wild, Aeros, and Gators teams and fans alike will miss you … Mike Greco from south Louisiana
