Brian Boyle retires after 14 NHL seasons
Veteran center Brian Boyle officially retired Wednesday after suiting up in 14 NHL seasons.
The 38-year-old wasn't on a roster this season, but he played in 66 games for the Pittsburgh Penguins last season. His next step will be joining NHL Network as a studio analyst.
Boyle was drafted 26th overall by the Los Angeles Kings in 2003. His longest stint with any team came from 2009-14 with the New York Rangers, where he appeared in 355 games. He also played for the Tampa Bay Lightning, Toronto Maple Leafs, New Jersey Devils, Nashville Predators, and Florida Panthers.
The Massachusetts native racked up 252 points in 871 career games while tacking on 33 more in 124 playoff contests.
Boyle won the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy in 2018 for his dedication to the sport after overcoming a chronic myeloid leukemia diagnosis.
