Jeff Beukeboom Biography
Jeff Beukeboom was born March 28, 1965 and is a former NHL defenseman.
At 6'5 230 lbs, he quickly established himself as a fan favourite and an anchor of the defence with his bodychecks and willingness to protect his teammates, through fighting if necessary. He played on the top defensive pairing with Brian Leetch, and was an alternate captain. Beukeboom's stay-at-home play allowed Leetch to lead the rush and kept opposing players out of the goal crease. He led the team in penalty minutes three times (199293, 9394, 9596) and was on four Stanley Cup winning teams (1987, 1988, 1990 and 1994). He was also known for his philanthropy, including Ice Hockey in Harlem. He won the Rangers' Crumb Bum Award, given for service to local youngsters (1996).
While with the Rangers, Beukeboom also appeared in a memorable This is Sportscenter spot in which he assaults ESPN's Steve Levy after being told Levy had referred to Beukeboom on-air as puke-a-boom
Due to his physical play, Beukeboom suffered multiple concussions, the most devastating of which came as a result of a sucker punch by Matt Johnson of the Los Angeles Kings in November 1998. Johnson received a 12-game suspension for intent to injure. While Beukeboom returned after a few games off, his style of play and history of concussions left him predisposed to another concussion, which he suffered on a minor collision in February 1999. Afterward, Beukeboom was left with recurrent headaches, memory loss, nausea, and mental fogginess that lasted for months. He was diagnosed with post-concussion syndrome, and ordered to never play hockey again. Beukeboom officially retired in July 1999 with a total of 1890 NHL penalty minutes in 804 games played, and is currently second all-time on the Rangers' penalty minutes list. Even after retiring, he continued to suffer post-concussion symptoms for almost two years before finally recovering. Beukeboom's last game was on February 12, 1999.
