The Rangers said Tuesday that the family ''would like to see Derek's legacy live on by supporting military kids and the game he loved.''
Defending the Blue Line is a nonprofit organization created by soldiers with the spirit of keeping hockey alive for the children of our nation's military heroes, according to the mission statement on the group's website.
The 28-year-old Boogaard was found dead Friday at his Minneapolis apartment. A cause of death has not yet been determined.
