#1

Derek Boogaard

Wild, LW

The legendary Boogey Man was the overall winner with a whopping 44 percent of the vote. Hailing from Saskatoon and standing at 6-7 with 250 glowering pounds on his frame, Boogaard is indeed a Wild man. His hands have been described as concrete blocks, and his record reflects it. He's undefeated in nine bouts this season, the lone survivor being Vancouver's Darcy Hordichuk, who fought him to a draw on January 13.
