Derek Boogaard may face NHL discipline for spearing Chris Neil's man-parts

GYI0061889426-boogaard-chrismcgrath-getty.jpgIt turns out that Mike Cammalleri wasn’t the only guy getting wild with his stick last night.

The NHL could be busy taking a look at last night’s game between Ottawa and the New York Rangers thanks to the frisky stick work of Rangers enforcer Derek Boogaard. Boogaard was given a five-minute major for spearing and a game misconduct for creatively finding out whether or not Ottawa enforcer Chris Neil was wearing his athletic supporter. Check out the video of of Boogaard’s work here on YouTube.

While Cammalleri’s use of his stick on Isles forward Nino Niederreiter is pretty foul, Boogaard taking a poke at Neil’s undercarriage is wince-inducing to any male watching the video. If this video took place in someone’s backyard, Boogaard might win first prize on America’s Funniest Home Videos.

    Both Cammalleri’s and Boogaard’s incidents are part of hockey. I think the NHL is over reacting to all of the recent suspensions. Neither of these incidents require suspensions. The NHL is turning into the NBA!

    NHL discipline? Boogaard should be given a medal.
    Neil is a puke and he deserves it. LONG deserved.

    You obviously have no class or brains. A real man would settle up with a fight but I guess Boogaard didn’t think he could win that way.
