The Derek Boogaard Story Coming Soon

Focus Features and Peter Berg are tackling the issue by focusing on renowned enforcer Derek Boogaard. A shy, oversized player who learned to use his fists to make it to the National Hockey League, Boogaard became hooked on painkillers from years of damage, and was found dead at age 28 after mixing prescription drugs with booze. As a brother in law of two NHL players having one no longer with us this is a huge deal to me, lets hope Peter can open people’s eyes with this film, and show the crazy life of an NHL enforcer.-TO
