Brian Boyle was drafted 26th overall in the first round of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft by the Los Angeles Kings. The Hingham, Massachusetts native spent four seasons (2003-2007) with the Boston College Eagles and helped them win the Hockey East championship twice. This former Eagles captain was named to the Hockey East First All-Star Team, along with the NCAA East First All-American, East Second All-American and Championship All-Tournament Teams. He also won the Hockey East Tournament MVP Award. During his time with Boston College, he produced 140 points and 294 penalty minutes in 159 total games. He spent most of the 2007-08 season with the Manchester Monarchs and was named to the AHL All-Rookie Team. He also played eight games with the Los Angeles Kings, including his NHL debut on February 2, 2008 against the New Jersey Devils, where he scored his first career goal and added an assist. After splitting another season between Los Angeles and Manchester, he was traded in June 2009 to the New York Rangers for a third round draft pick. He is currently under a contract which will bring him to the end of the 2010-11 season. At 6’7 and around 250 pounds, Boyle can play either center, left wing, or even defense.
