Due to his physical play, Beukeboom suffered multiple concussions. The most devastating 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. Afterwards, 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. He officially retired in July 1999 with a total of 1890 NHL penalty minutes in 804 games played, and is currently 2nd all-time on the Rangers penalty minutes list.
