The family of the late Derek Boogaard is suing the NHL in a wrongful death suit.
Boogaard passed away two years ago today. The suit claims that the NHL was responsible for his brain damage and addiction to prescription drugs according to The New York Times. "To distill this to one sentence," William Gibbs, attorney for the Boogaards, told The Times, "you take a young man, you subject him to trauma, you give him pills for that trauma, he becomes addicted to those pills, you promise to treat him for that addiction, and you fail."
