New York Islanders defenseman Johnny Boychuk says returning to the Boston Bruins as an unrestricted free agent next summer isn't out of the realm of possibility.

"I wouldn't close that door," Boychuk told CSNNE on Sunday. "It's such an awesome place and awesome team. Everything is awesome."

The veteran blue-liner literally sung the praises of the city where he spent six of his seven NHL seasons.

The Islanders acquired Boychuk from the Bruins on Saturday for two second-round draft picks and a conditional third-rounder.
