ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Minnesota Wild fans are gathering at Xcel Energy Center on Sunday night to honour enforcer and fan favourite Derek Boogaard.

Boogaard was found dead in his Minneapolis apartment Friday. The cause of death is being investigated. He was 28.

A fan set up a Facebook page to honour Boogaard and used the site to plan a public memorial at Xcel Energy Center. According to the Facebook page, fans will bring candles and their favourite memories to share.

The Star Tribune reports the memorial will take place at Gate 1, and that Boogaard's family members were so touched they plan to attend. The family is asking for privacy.

Boogaard played for Minnesota from 2005-2010, then signed with the New York Rangers.
