Penguin Ties to Boogaard

The late Derek Boogaard had indirect ties to the Pittsburgh Penguins by way of his youngest brother, Aaron.

Back in 2007 the Penguins signed Aaron Boogaard to a three-year, entry-level contract.  He spent the majority of his first season (2007-08) with the Penguins ECHL affiliate, the Wheeling Nailers, playing only two games with their AHL affiliate, WBS Baby Pens.  The next season, Aaron played a total of 41 games with WBS.

Aaron followed in the footsteps of Derek playing the role of the enforcer on the ice for the Baby Pens.
