Dustin Boyd

Canadiens Lose Boyd

News: Boyd has signed a contract with Barys Astana of the Kontinental Hockey League in Russia, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: Boyd's 2010-11 season began in Montreal and quickly devolved into a series of healthy scratches before he was demoted to the AHL Hamilton Bulldogs.

Dustin Boyd

Habs Reassign Boyd

News: The Canadiens assigned Boyd to AHL Hamilton on Thursday, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: It wasn't hard to see this move coming. Boyd has been a healthy scratch for most of the season and was placed on waivers Tuesday, so it was probably only a matter of time before this happened.

Boyd Clears Waivers, Still With Montreal

News: Boyd cleared waivers Tuesday, but remains with Montreal and participated in practice, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: Boyd, who has been a healthy scratch in 20 of 30 games this season and twice been placed on waivers, is in a netherworld right now. Having been waived and still practicing with the big club, Boyd is "part of the team -- for the moment," said Montreal coach Jacques Martin.

Dustin Boyd

Canadiens' Boyd Waived

News: The Canadiens placed Boyd on waivers Monday, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Boyd will be sent to AHL Hamilton if he clears waivers, and he'll be a candidate to be recalled later in the season.

Canadiens' Boyd Clears Waivers

News: Boyd has cleared waivers, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.
Analysis: Boyd will report to AHL Hamilton. He is a candidate to be recalled later in the season.

Dustin Boyd

Canadiens Put Boyd on Waivers

News: The Canadiens have put Boyd on waivers, the Calgary Herald reports.
Analysis: If Boyd passes through waivers, the Habs would like to keep him on their AHL squad. Boyd has one goal in nine games while registering a minus-6 rating.

Dustin Boyd

Canadiens' Boyd Back In Lineup

News: Boyd will return to the lineup after being a healthy scratch for the past five games, according to The Montreal Gazette.
Analysis: Boyd will play on the left wing alongside Lars Eller and Maxim Lapierre on the fourth line. He has one point in six games this season.

10/7/2010

Dustin Boyd, C, MON

Dustin Boyd

Boyd Scores for in Habs' Debut

News: Boyd found the back of the net at the 12:19 mark in the first period.
Analysis: Boyd's goal cut the early two goal lead by Toronto in half. Boyd is more of a grinder than a goal-scorer so don't expect this to become a regular event for Boyd.

3/3/2010

Dustin Boyd, C, MON

Dustin Boyd

Predators acquire Boyd from Flames

News: The Predators have acquired C Dustin Boyd from the Flames for a fourth-round pick.
Analysis: Boyd has 19 points in 60 games this season, but was benched by Calgary just before the Olympic break. The 23-year-old had 60 points in the AHL back in 2006-07, but hasn't been able to translate that into NHL success yet. Continue to ignore him in seasonal formats, but he does have some minor appeal in dynasty leagues.

2/15/2010

Dustin Boyd, C, MON Boyd benched for first time

Dustin Boyd

Boyd benched for first time

News: The Sports Xchange reports Flames LW Dustin Boyd was a healthy scratch for the first time this season on Saturday against the Ducks.
Analysis: The fourth-year pro has bounced through the lineup all season, sometimes even playing on the top line at left wing. Boyd, who has eight goals and 19 points, must improve his consistency and defensive play if he wants to be a regular. Boyd remains more of a low-end Fantasy flier until his breakout run.

1/31/2010

Dustin Boyd, C, MON Boyd breaks out on Saturday

Dustin Boyd

Boyd breaks out on Saturday

News: Calgary C Dustin Boyd scored his seventh goal of the season in the first period on Saturday in a 6-1 win over the Oilers. Boyd added his eighth of the year later in the game during the second period and that goal was unassisted. Boyd later added an assist in the third period and finished the game with three points recorded. He added two penalty minutes in the first for tripping.
Analysis: Boyd earned his first multiple-point game since Nov. 14 at Toronto and his first multi-goal game of the entire season on Saturday. He now has eight goals and 19 points for the Flames. Boyd hasn't been that great of an offensive player for Calgary this year. Boyd remains more of a low-end Fantasy flier until his breakout run.

1/26/2010

Dustin Boyd, C, MON Boyd stuck on two January points

Dustin Boyd

Boyd stuck on two January points

News: Flames C Dustin Boyd had no points and a minus-1 rating on Monday against the Blues. He has one goal and two points in 12 January games.
Analysis: The two points in January are a season low for Boyd. His numbers this month reflect that of many Flames' players since Calgary just can't get the offense rolling. Still, Boyd wasn't that great of an offensive player when Calgary was scoring early in the year. Boyd remains more of a low-end Fantasy flier until his breakout run.

12/29/2009

Dustin Boyd, C, MON

Dustin Boyd

Boyd has assist, fights vs. Oilers

News: Flames C Dustin Boyd tallied an assist during Monday's game against the Oilers. It was his first assist in seven games. He also totaled seven penalty minutes, including a fighting major for brawling with Andrew Cogliano.
Analysis: Boyd has primarily spent most of the season on the Flames' fourth line, but he has been seeing some top-line PT as of late. It still hasn't sparked his offensive game. Boyd remains more of a low-end Fantasy option until his breakout run.

11/29/2009

Dustin Boyd, C, MON

Dustin Boyd

Boyd has first goal in seven games

News: Flames C Dustin Boyd scored a goal and finished at plus-1 during Saturday's game against the Blue Jackets. Olli Jokinen, working behind the net, centered a nifty backhand pass that Boyd backhanded past Steve Mason, who was leaning the wrong way, at 14:14 for his fourth. It was his first goal in seven games.
Analysis: Boyd dealt with a case of the swine flu earlier this season, but we really can't blame that for his poor performance. He does have 10 points and a plus-7 rating in 24 games, but those numbers aren't going to win anyone a Fantasy championship. He continues to play all over for Calgary, but Boyd remains more of a low-end Fantasy option until his breakout run.

11/15/2009

Dustin Boyd, C, MON

Dustin Boyd

Boyd has first goal in nine games

News: Flames C Dustin Boyd scored a goal, tallied an assist and finished at plus-2 during Saturday's game against the Maple Leafs. Boyd followed up on his own blocked shot and backhanded the puck past Jonas Gustavsson at 9:54 of the first period. It was his third goal and first in nine games.
Analysis: Boyd has been a little slow to recover from the swine flu, but Saturday's performance was encouraging. He continues to play all over for Calgary, but Boyd remains more of a low-end Fantasy option until his breakout run.

Dustin Boyd, C, MON

Dustin Boyd

Boyd back from swine flu scare

News: The Sports Xchange reports Flames LW Dustin Boyd returned to the lineup Saturday against the Red Wings after missing the previous game because of the flu. He was away from the team for a few days because of the H1N1 virus scare but returned to action after skating for only a couple of days. He had no points in 14:56 of ice time.
Analysis: Boyd has two goals and six points in his first 11 games. He has played pretty well in the early going and has seen a lot of top-six time. Calgary is really hoping Boyd has his breakout season in 2009-10, but he remains just a low-end Fantasy option until further notice.

10/17/2009

Dustin Boyd, C, MON

Dustin Boyd

Boyd records goal and an assist

News: The Flames beat the Canucks 5-3 on Friday and Calgary C Dustin Boyd had a solid night in the victory. Boyd scored his second goal of the season in the 2nd period to make it 4-0 Calgary. He then assisted on the game's next goal scored by Brian McGrattan. The score was 5-0 after two periods.
Analysis: Boyd has two-point nights in two of his last three games with a goal and an assist in each of those. However, other than those two games, he has just one other assist on the year in eight contests. Boyd has five points for the season for the Flames. Boyd is merely a low-end Fantasy flier for the deepest of formats at the moment but has the ability to improve.

8/3/2009

Dustin Boyd, C, MON Boyd could be top-six forward

Dustin Boyd

Boyd could be top-six forward

News: The Sports Xchange reports Flames C Dustin Boyd, who re-signed July 30, was the last of the team's restricted free agents and is coming off an 11-goal, 22-point NHL season. Boyd, who played NHL games in all three seasons of his entry-level contract, will be counted on to take a bigger role with the team, maybe even become a top-six forward, although he'll be counted on to be a winger.
Analysis: Boyd has 20 goals and 38 points in 132 NHL games. The 2004 third-round pick has shown he can score in the minors and as a junior hockey player, but his game has been slow to develop in the NHL. Boyd is merely a low-end Fantasy flier for the deepest of formats Draft Day. He could be a sleeper for deeper formats as well.

7/30/2009

Dustin Boyd, C, MON

Dustin Boyd

Boyd re-signs with Calgary

News: The Flames re-signed forward Dustin Boyd Thursday. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Analysis: Boyd played in a career-high 71 games with the Flames in 2008-09. He also had a career-high 11 goals and 11 assists. Boyd has 20 goals and 38 points in 132 NHL games. The 2004 third-round pick has shown he can score in the minors and as a junior hockey player, but his game has been slow to develop in the NHL. Boyd is merely a low-end Fantasy flier for the deepest of formats Draft Day.

Dustin Boyd

Boyd assists on both Flames goals

News: Calgary C Dustin Boyd had an assist on both goals scored by the Flames, including the game-winner, in a 2-1 win over the Stars on Wednesday. On the game-winner, rookie center Warren Peters pressured Fabian Brunnstrom into giving up the puck in his zone. Dustin Boyd kept the play onside and swept a pass to Nystrom as he broke to the net. Nystrom moved in and fired a shot from 20 feet that squeezed in under the arm of goalie Marty Turco. Nystrom's fourth goal of the season was his first in 14 games.
Analysis: Boyd has done very little in the month of March and hasn't really done much to improve his Fantasy stock. He is only a low-end option reserved for the deepest of leagues.

2/20/2009

Dustin Boyd, C, MON

Dustin Boyd

Boyd ties game in second

News: Flames C Dustin Boyd scored his 10th goal of the season on Thursday against the Wild in a 3-2 overtime win. Calgary tied it at 16:10 of the second when Boyd beat a sprawling Niklas Backstrom. It was the last regulation goal as Adrian Aucoin scored the game-winner in overtime.
Analysis: Boyd now has three points in his last six games, which is about all that can be expected from him. He's been struggling through the second half of the season and is only a low-end option reserved for very deep leagues.

Dustin Boyd

Boyd nets 9th goal of year

News: Calgary C Dustin Boyd netted a shorthanded goal near the close of the 2nd period to put the Flames out of reach at 4-2 in their 6-2 win over Montreal Monday. Boyd notched his 9th of the year.
Analysis: Boyd now has 15 points on the season for the Flames. He's really struggling of late after starting the year pretty hot and coach Mike Keenan has been taking away time on the ice for poor play. Boyd is a developing forward, but until he can be a little more consistent, he has marginal Fantasy appeal.

1/18/2009

Dustin Boyd, C, MON Boyd posts minus-4 Saturday

Dustin Boyd

Boyd posts minus-4 Saturday

News: The Sports Xchange reports C Dustin Boyd, who so many Flames fans wonder is getting the short shift when it comes to ice time, didn't do much for his case with a minus-4 night against the Coyotes Saturday. Boyd doesn't have a point in seven games.
Analysis: Boyd had a big preseason and totaled nine points in his first 21 games. He has just three points in his last 17 games and coach Mike Keenan has started to take away his PT. Boyd is a developing forward, but until he can be a little more consistent, he has marginal Fantasy appeal.

Boyd returns with goal Tuesday

News: Calgary C Dustin Boyd scored the Flames' lone goal in the 2nd period Tuesday against the Canadiens in his return to the lineup after missing five games because of a shoulder injury. It was his seventh tally of the season.
Analysis: Boyd has been one of the Flames' top goal scorers since the preseason, but since he still hasn't fully matured in the NHL, he is not always contributing on the stat sheet. Consider Boyd more of a low-end Fantasy forward at this time.

Dustin Boyd, C, MON

Dustin Boyd

D. Boyd should return Tuesday

News: The Calgary Sun reports that Flames C Dustin Boyd (shoulder) should return to action Tuesday vs. Montreal. He has missed five games.
Analysis: Boyd has been one of the Flames' top goal scorers since the preseason, but since he still hasn't fully matured in the NHL, he is not always contributing on the stat sheet. Consider Boyd more of a low-end Fantasy forward when healthy.
