you comment on the Wild next year? Sorry for this family and the loss of a son and brother at a age we should never even think of death. Money and fame are nothing at a time like this.

RIP Derek, you will be missed. A throwback tough guy in a league of faceless European players. Minnesota will always remember you, Boogeyman...

RIP Derek. You were a fan favorite here in Minnesota. Your toughness on the ice was equally matched by your kindness off the ice.

RIP Derek. Hoping future Wild teams have at least half the fight and heart you had.

An unfortunate loss, RIP Boogey Man. Have to hope an incident unrelated to his role on the ice.
