Dan Boyle: Retires as Shark
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyle announced his retirement with San Jose on Wednesday.

Boyle spent six seasons with the Sharks before ending his career with the Rangers. The defenseman logged 1093 regular-season games as well as 130 playoff matchups in his career. All told, the Ottawa native registered 686 points and got to lift the Stanley Cup with Tampa Bay.

Rangers' Dan Boyle: Retired on Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyle announced that he is leaning toward retirement for family reasons Tuesday, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.

In a press conference on breakup day, Boyle spoke to the press regarding his playing status next season. The 39-year-old defenseman said he believes he could still play, but may retire -- he has yet to make an official decision. He's tallied 605 points (163 goals, 442 assists) in 1,093 NHL games.

Rangers' Dan Boyle: Watching Game 5 from press box
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyle was a healthy scratch for Game 5 against the Penguins on Saturday.

The Rangers desperately need to take Game 5 in order to stay alive in the postseason. Boyle has just one point -- an assist -- in the series, and was minus-2 over the last two games, so a shakeup was in order. Raphael Diaz drew into the lineup instead.

Rangers' Dan Boyle: Fine to play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyle (illness) returned to practice Wednesday, and The Record's Tom Gross reports that he's good to go for the evening's game.

Boyle's absence from Tuesday was reportedly partly for precautionary reasons, and he will now be ready. However, Newsday's Steve Zipay notes that he could still sit out of the contest as a healthy scratch. The veteran isn't the offensive threat he once was (just 16 points in 49 games), but remains a sneaky option for daily formats.

Rangers' Dan Boyle: Misses practice with flu
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyle missed practice Tuesday while dealing with the flu.

The Rangers have yet to officially rule on his status for Wednesday's game against the Blackhawks, but at this point there appears to be a real possibility Boyle will be held out of at least that contest. Ryan McDonagh (concussion) is expected to return, so that may be the only corresponding roster move even if Boyle is forced to miss time with the illness.

Rangers' Dan Boyle: Extends season worst, eight game point drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyle's point drought hit eight games in Sunday's 5-2 loss to Washington.

At first, it seemed the veteran defenseman had snapped the streak with wrister on the power play, but the goal was disallowed after the replay revealed offsides on the play. While Boyle has been under the microscope for a lack of offensive production since he arrived in New York, his current skid is a season-worst. With a career worst point-per-game pace through 159 career games in February, there's no guarantee the 39-year-old Ontario native will break out of his slump any time soon. Still, Boyle's five goals and 14 points through 39 games this season is more than enough to warrant patience in deeper league formats.

Rangers' Dan Boyle: Records two points against Lightning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyle scored the game's opening goal and added an assist in Wednesday's 5-2 win in Tampa Bay.

The veteran defenseman stepped up with a two-point game against his former team. Boyle has been a bright spot during New York's recent struggles, as he now has five goals and four assists in the last 10 games. He's probably past the point where he can sustain this level of production for an extended period at age 39, but Boyle is still on pace for his 10th career 30-point season.

Rangers' Dan Boyle: Turning things up a notch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyle collected his fourth goal of the season in Sunday's loss to Washington.

The veteran blue liner got his second goal in as many games and both were on the man advantage. Although he has registered minus-4 over the past four games, he's found the net in three of those games. Whether it was being healthy scratched earlier in the season in favor of Dylan McIlrath or being cemented back into the line-up by Kevin Klein's injury, the second year Ranger has been reinvigorated of late, posting six of his season total 11 points over the past seven games. While we can't guarantee this spike will continue, his career numbers suggest there's still something left in the tank.

Rangers' Dan Boyle: Collects two points in loss to Flames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyle scored his second goal of the season and dished out an assist in 22:51 of ice time in Saturday's overtime loss to Calgary.

That's a three-game point streak for Boyle, who has picked up a power-play point in back-to-back games. The veteran only has nine points on the year, but he's logging heavy minutes and is manning the point on the top power-play unit, so things are trending upwards. He may be 39-years-old, but Boyle, who has scored twice in his last three games, can still be a viable source of offense from the back-end.

Rangers' Dan Boyle: Notes game-winning assist Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyle notched a power play assist in Saturday's 5-4 overtime win over the Panthers.

Although the assist came on the Rick Nash's overtime hat trick clinching goal, that's the veteran blue liner's first point in four games and just the fourth point of the season. Reportedly considering retirement and consistently in danger of watching from the press box, it's safe to say Boyle should remain in your free agent pool.

Rangers' Dan Boyle: Continues positive play in win over Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyle logged an assist in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Coyotes.

Although it's his first point in four contests and just his third point (all assists) of the season, the point is a reflection of Boyle's (plus-4 over the last three games) improved play of late. As long as Boyle's positive play continues, head coach Alain Vigneault may need to hold off alternating the veteran blue liner with bruiser Dylan McIlrath as the team's sixth defenseman.

Rangers' Dan Boyle: Back in the lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyle will return to the lineup Saturday against the Coyotes, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.

Boyle missed the past two games as he has become a top candidate to watch games from the press box whenever the Rangers need to go with a more physical, shutdown type of defenseman, like Dylan McIlrath.

Rangers' Dan Boyle: Healthy scratch Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyle will be a healthy scratch Tuesday night when the Rangers take on the Capitals, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports.

It appears the Rangers will go with a more physical blueliner in Dylan McIlrath against a Capitals team currently averaging the fourth-most goals per game (3.40).

Rangers D Dan Boyle to sit out as healthy scratch on Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rangers defenseman Dan Boyle will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's tilt against Winnipeg, reports Andrew Gross of The Record.

The writing was on the wall last season as Boyle began to show signs of a final decline. With former first round pick Dylan McIlrath expected to bring a more physical presence, but a lack of power play expertise like the former, it will be interesting to see how the team performs. If you do own Boyle in some format, it's not quite time to abandon ship as the veteran comes with $4.5 million cap-hit and will likely play again. How he responds in his next appearance should determine your next step.

Coach Alain Vigneault indicated Friday that Boyle (head) will play in Saturday's Game 1 matchup with the Lightning, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.Boyle was a participant in Friday's practice, and is apparently doing well enough to give it a go in Game 1. The veteran blueliner logged plenty of minutes against the Capitals, and notched a goal in Game 6 on three shots. Assuming nothing occurs moving forward, he should be in line to see plenty of ice time in the Eastern Conference finals as well.

Boyle (head) is practicing Friday afternoon, Pat Leonard of the NY Daily News reports.Boyle was removed from Wednesday's Game 7 against the Capitals midway through the third period, after taking a huge hit from defenseman Brooks Orpik. While his presence on the ice Friday doesn't guarantee anything, Boyle seemingly has a shot to suit up for Saturday's Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals against Tampa Bay. If Boyle can't play, either Chris Summers or Matt Hunwick will likely join the lineup.
