The Life of a Hockey Goon

The NYT has published a three-part series on the life of late hockey enforcer Derek Boogaard, who died earlier this year at age 28 of a drug and alcohol overdose. Part 1: A Boy Learns to Brawl; Part 2: Blood on the IcePart 3: A Brain ‘Going Bad.

Tough read, but interesting for anyone fascinated by hockey or the downside of life as a professional athlete.
