Derek Boogaard beatdown of D.J. King named Top 10 NHL fight
The business end of the seventh best fight in the NHL: Derek "The Boogeyman" Boogaard
Nick Vlcek for City Pages
It's no secret that we're big fans of The Boogeyman.
Now Wild enforcer Derek Boogaard can add another laurel to his brutal resume: his beatdown of D.J. King was named by Puck Daddy as the 7th best fight of the NHL season.
"This is a super heavyweight bout!"
Absolutely bombs dropped in this fight before it peters out at the end. There's something to be said for the fact that the HockeyFights.com pugilist panel gave the fight to Boogaard by 42.9-42.7 percent margin -- meaning the overwhelming majority felt this bout had a clear winner.
