Prior to tonight’s Wild-Flames tilt at the Xcel Energy Center, Minnesota will pay tribute to Derek Boogaard with a special video presentation.
Here’s a brief video tease featuring Andrew Brunette, Boogaard’s former Wild teammate:
The Wild announced earlier last week that Boogaard’s parents, sister and two brothers will be in attendance for the ceremony. The organization will also unveil a donation to Defending The Blue Line, a nonprofit charity that helps children of military members play hockey.
UPDATE: Here’s the video in full.
