Big Weekend For Boogaard

by Staff Writer / Minnesota Wild

 Don’t laugh. When it comes to judging fashion on Friday night, Derek Boogaard will be all business.
With Friday and Saturday off, the bulk of the Minnesota Wild roster will have a little free time to relax prior to a big playoff push. But the player with the biggest bulk, Derek Boogaard, will be extremely busy over the weekend. At 8:00 PM on Friday night, Boogaard will serve as one of six judges for METRO Magazine’s Fashion Fight Night to benefit the L.E.A.D. Project. The event will take place at Uppercut Boxing Gym in Northeast Minneapolis, and limited tickets remain at the cost of $35 and can be purchased at

Though he’ll never be mistaken for Heidi Klum, it will be up to Boogaard to choose a winning photographer and model to earn the title of "METRO Fashion Photo Shoot of the Year." He’ll have to choose the winners based on originality, execution, final shots, overall appearance and teamwork.

If Boogaard can survive the high profile world of fashion on Friday, he’ll then make an Edy’s Ice Cream Appearance at Festival Foods in Hugo from 4:00 to 5:00 PM on Saturday.

The Festival Foods in Hugo is located at:

14775 Victor Hugo Blvd.
Hugo, MN 55038
