NEW YORK (AP) A former minor league hockey player accused of selling prescription painkillers to an ex-hockey player who died of an accidental overdose has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor drug charge. Jordan Hart entered the plea in Manhattan federal court Thursday. The Huntington, New York, resident was arrested in September 2014 after the accidental overdose death of Derek Boogaard of the New York Rangers and Minnesota Wild. Prosecutors said he sold illegally obtained prescription painkillers to the former hockey player before his death. There was no mention of Boogaard when Hart admitted obtaining prescription painkillers illegally in late 2010 and early 2011. He said he obtained them to satisfy an addiction that developed after he was prescribed the drugs for a severe shoulder injury that occurred in 2009.
