Seems strange no cause of death was released. Should we be on the look out for a murderer, did he die in his sleep? Inquire minds want to know.

Wild should have never gotten rid of him. They really needed him. They are nothing but a bunch of wimps now.

Man that stinks -- too young, too good of a person, and too fun to watch play.

Hard to replace guys like Boogie in the hearts of fans. He was a good soldier for the team, his teammates and the fans. He did not deserve to go so young. In time we will know if is related to concussions and the high risk of hits to the head.

I have always smiled at Friday the 13th. Never, never can I again. I was little when the North Stars left, felt a loss when Herb passed, and again I'm crying over another sad day for hockey in Minnesota. May the Boogey Man hear our cheers wherever he spends forever!

Don't F'n worry about it! He died. That's all the info any of us need to know. It's a private family matter.

It's because they don't know. It says an autopsy is pending.
