Despite failing 14 of 19 drug tests leading up to his untimely death in May of 211, doctors allowed Derek Boogaard to play.
We encourage you to read the link below for the full details of Len Boogaard, Derek's father, pursuit to bring whom he believes are the true culprits in his son's death to justice. In 2013 Len Boogaard filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the NHL, saying that ultimately the league was responsible for his care. The report goes on to state that Derek Boogaard failed 14 of 19 drug tests leading up to his death, and had written care agreements with the Minnesota Wild dating back to 2009. In addition, Dr. David Lewis, a co-founder of the NHL and NHLPA's substance abuse program, was liable for Boogaard's care. Instead, as has frequently been described, those who were in position to truly help Boogaard looked the other way. Fri, Apr 8, 2016 09:45:00 PM
