  • Brian Boyle: Officially retired

    Per Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press, Boyle has joined NHL Network as a studio analyst, indicating he's officially retired from the NHL.

    Boyle will retire having collected 141 goals, 252 points, 615 PIM and 1,783 hits through 871 career appearances over 14 seasons split between the Kings, Rangers, Lightning, Maple Leafs, Devils, Predators, Panthers and Penguins.

  • Penguins' Brian Boyle: Has knee procedure Monday

    Boyle underwent surgery on his left knee Monday and is facing a six-week recovery timeline.

    Boyle was labeled week-to-week by the team ahead of Game 7 versus the Rangers on Sunday, so his procedure shouldn't come as a surprise. The veteran center made 66 appearances for the Penguins during the regular season this year in which he registered 11 goals, 10 assists and 87 shots despite averaging just 10:47 of ice time. If Boyle wants to extend his NHL career, he should be able to secure a contract during the offseason, possibly with the Penguins.

  • Penguins' Brian Boyle: Week-to-week

    Boyle (lower body) is week-to-week and will not play in Game 7 against the Rangers on Sunday.

    Even if the Penguins are able to advance to Round 2, Boyle may not be able to suit up given his new return timeline. The veteran managed a pair of assists across 10:15 of average ice time in the first six games of the series before suffering the injury Friday.

  • Penguins' Brian Boyle: Suffers injury Friday

    Boyle is being evaluated for a lower-body injury after leaving early during Friday's loss to the Rangers, Wes Crosby of reports.

    Boyle left after registering just 1:25 of ice time during the first period. The 37-year-old notched two assists while averaging 12:01 of ice time through the first five games of the series. An update on his status should be available before Game 7 on Sunday.

  • Penguins' Brian Boyle: Provides helper Saturday

    Boyle logged an assist and two blocked shots in Saturday's 7-4 win over the Rangers in Game 3.

    Boyle set up the second of Evan Rodrigues' pair of goals in the first period after forcing a turnover. This was Boyle's first point in three playoff contests this year, and he's added six blocked shots and four shots on net from a fourth-line role. The 37-year-old had 21 points in 66 regular-season outings, but he's more of a defensive presence than a scoring threat.

  • Penguins' Brian Boyle: Two points in Sunday's win

    Boyle scored a goal and an assist in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Hurricanes.

    He opened the scoring in the first period, then helped set up Sidney Crosby for the game-winner in the third. Boyle's fourth-line role doesn't offer him much offensive upside, and on the season he has seven goals and 12 points through 46 games.

  • Penguins' Brian Boyle: Goal and assist in win over Devils

    Boyle scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Devils.

    Boyle and Mike Matheson assisted on each other's goals Sunday to provide the Penguins with some scoring depth. The 37-year-old Boyle isn't one to produce much offense at this point in his career -- this was his first multi-point effort of the season. The center has six goals, two assists, 52 shots on net, 46 hits and an even plus-minus rating in 36 contests.

  • Penguins' Brian Boyle: Generates helper Monday

    Boyle logged an assist, two shots on goal, two hits and two PIM in Monday's 5-3 win over the Golden Knights.

    Boyle set up Teddy Blueger's second-period tally that got the Penguins within a goal. This was Boyle's first assist of the season to go with four goals in 26 appearances. The 37-year-old has added 34 shots on net and 30 hits while mainly playing in a fourth-line role, so he's not likely to add enough to help in fantasy.

    Boyle (lower body) is out of the lineup for Friday's game against Buffalo.

  • Penguins' Brian Boyle: Misses Thursday's practice

    Boyle (lower body) did not practice Thursday, Mike DeFabo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

  • Penguins' Brian Boyle: Sitting as healthy scratch

    Boyle is no longer dealing with an upper-body injury and instead has been sitting as a healthy scratch, Dave Molinari of reports.

    Coach Mike Sullivan is evidently content with his current lineup, so it may take a poor game from one of Pittsburgh's current top-four centers for Boyle to get back in the mix. Boyle's picked up two goals through 16 contests this season.

  • Penguins' Brian Boyle: Will miss Wednesday's tilt

    Boyle (upper body) will be on the shelf versus Edmonton on Wednesday.

    Boyle will miss his second straight contest due to his upper-body issue. Since the return of Sidney Crosby, the 36-year-old Boyle has struggled to find a place in the lineup and could find himself further down the organizational depth chart once Evgeni Malkin (knee) returns to action.
