Boyd posted an assist and two hits in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Coyotes.
Boyd set up Carl Hagelin for the Capitals' lone goal in the contest. The 26-year-old center has 10 points and 24 shots through 22 games this season. He's no lock for the lineup when the team is at full strength -- Boyd's played in the last two games due to Evgeny Kuznetsov's upper-body injury.
Boyd tallied a goal while logging 12:09 of ice time during Monday's 4-2 win over the Canadiens.
Boyd gave the Capitals the lead early in the second period by bouncing the puck of Canadiens defenseman Jeff Petry's boot into an open net. The 26-year-old forward has managed a respectable three goals and nine points in 20 games despite averaging just 11:36 of ice time, which would be enough to garner fantasy consideration in deeper leagues if he were seeing regular ice time. The Minnesotan is a very useful depth forward for the Capitals but is not a factor for fantasy purposes until he can secure regular playing time.
Boyd will be in the lineup Monday against the Canadiens, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.
With Richard Panik moving up to the top line while Alex Ovechkin (suspension) sits out after skipping the All-Star Game, Boyd will fill the void on the third line alongside Carl Hagelin and Lars Eller. The 26-year-old is likely to return to the press box upon Ovechkin's return and therefore possesses little fantasy upside beyond Monday's game.
Boyd notched a goal on three shots in Friday's 3-2 win over the Ducks.
Boyd tallied the opening goal at 9:00 of the first period, converting on a nice feed from Carl Hagelin. Boyd has two goals and eight points in 16 appearances this season. Despite that solid pace for a bottom-six forward, he's expected to be the odd man out when Nicklas Backstrom (upper body) is ready to return to the lineup.
Washington recalled Boyd from AHL Hershey on Saturday.
Boyd has been highly productive in limited action with the big club this season, racking up four helpers in six appearances. He'll likely slot into a bottom-six role for Saturday's matchup with Boston.
Head coach Todd Reirden indicated Boyd will be sent to the minors, JJ Regan of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Boyd's reassignment is a result of Richard Panik (upper body) nearing a return to the lineup rather than an indictment of the former's performance, given that the 26-year-old notched four assists in six games during his brief stint in the big leagues. The sixth-round pick from the 2011 NHL Entry Draft will report to AHL Hershey and await his next bite at the NHL apple.
Boyd tallied an assist while logging 10:55 of ice time during Saturday's 5-2 win over the Golden Knights.
Boyd has been quite productive since his recall following injuries to Washington's bottom six, with four helpers in six games despite averaging just 9:24 of ice time. With Carl Hagelin (upper body) and Richard Panik (upper body) expected back in the near future, the 2011 sixth-rounder is likely headed back to the minors fairly soon.
Boyd had two assists and was plus-2 in Friday's 6-1 win over the Sabres.
That's three assists in three games for the 26-year-old since being summoned from the press box, where he spent the first seven games of the season. Boyd is averaging less than 10 minutes of ice time per game and has totaled just two shots on goal so far, so his offensive contributions will likely be limited going forward.
Boyd notched a helper and went plus-2 in Friday's 6-5 shootout win over the Canucks.
Boyd had been a healthy scratch in all seven games he was on the Capitals' roster this season, but he drew into the lineup in place of Chandler Stephenson. Boyd repaid coach Todd Reirden's confidence by setting up Michal Kempny's equalizer in the third period. The 26-year-old produced five goals and 20 points in 53 appearances last year, showing the capability to add some depth scoring. It likely won't matter for fantasy purposes, however.
Boyd was recalled from AHL Hershey.
Boyd had four goals and six points in three games in the minors prior to being recalled, so it's possible he'll see some NHL action while Richard Panik (upper body) is on the mend, but keep your fantasy expectations in check for the 26-year-old.
Boyd was placed on waivers by the Capitals on Sunday, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.
Boyd served as a healthy scratch in three straight games. The Minnesota native's demotion comes as Washington tries to clear cap space in order to add Evgeny Kuznetsov to the roster. Assuming the 26-year-old clears, he will be assigned to AHL Hershey, but should be atop the list of potential call-ups throughout the year.
Boyd is expected to be in the lineup Thursday against the Hurricanes, Chris Kuc of The Athletic reports.
Boyd has been a healthy scratch thus far in Round One, but he will draw in for Chandler Stephenson on the fourth line with Carl Hagelin and Nic Dowd. The 25-year-old forward has only one other playoff appearance in his career, so there isn't much fantasy upside at this point.
Boyd scored his fifth goal of the season in Sunday's 3-1 win over the Flyers.
He displayed some nifty stickwork in tipping home Matt Niskanen's quick flip towards the net in the second period, a goal that stood up as the game-winner. Boyd hadn't found twine since Jan. 6, but this one gave the 25-year-old grinder an even 20 points through 48 games on the year.
Boyd registered an assist in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Flyers.
Now with assists in consecutive games, Boyd is up to 14 in 41 games this season, to go along with four goals. Playing in a fourth-line capacity, the 25-year-old carries very little fantasy value at this stage of his career.
Boyd has three assists in his last 10 outings.
The 25-year-old center has been scratched in six of the Capitals' last 16 games. Boyd has added a bit of physicality with four hits in his last three games, but he has only 16 points in 37 contests this year. He averages 10:27 per game.
Boyd tallied a power-play assist and two shots during Monday's 4-1 loss to the Blues.
Boyd has been fairly productive of late with four goals and eight points in his last 15 games -- despite logging just 10:34 of ice time per game. The sixth-round pick from the 2011 NHL Entry Draft has taken a big step forward in his development and could become a regular starter for the Capitals down the stretch. However, the unpredictability of ice time continues to hamper his fantasy value outside of the deepest of leagues.
Boyd tallied a goal and won three of eight faceoffs taken during Sunday's 3-2 victory over the Red Wings.
Boyd buried a beautiful feed from Alex Ovechkin in the third period to give him his fourth goal and 11th point in 22 games. The 25-year-old struggles to secure regular ice time on a deep Washington roster, but he's tallied four goals and six points in his last 11 games which may force the coaching staff to give him a larger role. The 177th overall pick from the 2011 NHL Entry Draft has plenty of hustle and skill but needs more consistent ice time to have much fantasy value even in deeper leagues.
Boyd tallied an assist and two blocked shots during Friday's 3-1 win over the Red Wings.
Boyd has been a significant offensive boost since his return from a lower-body injury Nov. 5, especially given the injuries to Evgeny Kuznetsov (upper body) and T.J. Oshie (head). The sixth-round pick from the 2011 NHL Entry Draft is up to five assists in nine games, which is quite a feat given that he's logging just 9:39 of ice time per game. A fully healthy lineup will probably eat into his ice time, but given the spark he's provided, the Caps may choose to keep him in the lineup more often as the season wears on, so keep an eye on his production and usage moving forward.
Boyd registered an assist while logging 11:44 of ice time during Friday's 3-2 overtime win against the Avalanche.
Boyd now has three helpers in six games since returning from a lower-body injury Nov. 5, which is pretty solid production for a bottom-six player. The 25-year-old forward is benefitting from injuries to Evgeny Kuznetsov (upper body) and T.J. Oshie (upper body) but will need to keep producing effectively to beat out Nic Dowd and Dmitrij Jaskin for regular ice time when the Capitals are at full health.
Boyd fashioned a pair of assists in Monday's 4-2 home win over the Oilers, which also happened to be his season debut.
Boyd looked fantastic in his return from a foot injury, as he skated to a plus-2 rating and set up a pair of first-period goals -- one to Jakub Vrana and the other to Devante Smith-Pelly. Still, it's going to take maximum offensive efficiency from Boyd to be a recommended fantasy option since he figures to hold down a fourth-line role for the foreseeable future.
