New York’s Newsday reports that New York Rangers player Derek Boogaard died from a mixture of alcohol and oxycodone.

The results of the autopsy and toxicological reports were released by the Hennepin County, MN, medical examiner’s office.

The report also concluded that the lethal combination was accidental.

Boogaard was an up and coming star who just finished his first year of a four year multi-million dollar contract.

The 28 year old’s body was found by his two brothers.

Boogaard, according to the New York Post, had spent his final days participating in the NHL and player associations substance abuse program.
