It's an eerie coincidence that one of the first hockey autographs I received after the news of Derek Boogaard's death was from George Parros.  I probably saw Boogaard fight him as much as any other opponent over the years.  Parros is a longtime enforcer for the Anaheim Ducks, best known for his amazing mustache.  He's hardly as dumb as you'd think, though!  He is a Princeton graduate who was ranked by the Sporting News as the fourth smartest athlete currently in professional sports.
