4 Comments

The 2012 Pulitzer Prize winners were announced today and the New York Times’ story about Derek Boogaard’s life and death was nominated in the “Feature Writing” category.

Though it didn’t win (this did), the Boogaard feature should gain a whole new audience with today’s announcement.

Part 1 – A Boy Learns to Brawl

Part 2 – Blood on the Ice

Part 3 – A Brain “Going Bad”
