Rangers' Boyle (Illness) Back In Action

News: Dan Boyle returned Saturday after missing two games with an illness. He finished minus-1 with one SOG, two blocks and three hits.
Analysis: Get him back in there if you roll him regularly -- he's not blowing the doors off offensively, but he's still a solid fantasy contributor.

Rangers' Boyle To Play Saturday

News: Dan Boyle (illness) will be ready to play Saturday against the Red Wings, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Analysis: Dan Boyle returned to practice Thursday after missing the previous two games with flu-like symptoms, which had drained him of energy over the previous four days. Now that he's ready to go, he'll slide in next to Ryan McDonagh, with John Moore likely becoming a healthy scratch Saturday.

Rangers' Boyle Won't Play Monday

News: Dan Boyle (flu) will not play Monday against the Lightning, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Dan Boyle's illness is still classified as the flu at this point, but he will undergo blood tests Monday to make sure it's not something more serious.

Rangers' Boyle Out With Illness

News: Dan Boyle will not play Saturday due to a bout with the flu, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.
Analysis: Consider Dan Boyle day-to-day with the illness. John Moore will enter the lineup Saturday in Boyle's place.

Rangers' Boyle Bags Power-Play Goal

News: Dan Boyle netted the game-winning goal in Friday's 3-0 defeat of the Flyers.
Analysis: Dan Boyle gave the Rangers the lead just over six minutes into the first period, blowing a slap shot past Flyers goalie Steve Mason for his second goal of the season. Both of those points have come on the power play, where Boyle figures to be a mainstay on the top unit all season.

Rangers' Boyle Claims First Point

News: Dan Boyle collected his first point of the season with a first-period power-play goal in Wednesday's loss to the Lightning.
Analysis: Dan Boyle has yet to get going after a broken hand cost him entire month of action, but Thursday's goal could spark his production. Though he's long past his peak at 38 years old, Boyle's presence on a top power-play unit ripe with talent should allow him to finish the season as an above-average source of offense from the blue line.

Friday's Game Postponed For Rangers, Boyle

News: Dan Boyle and the Rangers had their scheduled game Friday against the Sabres postponed due to the extreme weather conditions in the Buffalo area, Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: With some parts of the region receiving up to six feet of snow this week, traveling to Buffalo would have proven quite treacherous for the Rangers had the game been played as scheduled. No make-up date has been announced yet for the game, but expect Dan Boyle to be in the lineup for the Rangers' next contest Sunday versus Montreal.

Boyle Returns For Rangers

News: Dan Boyle went plus-1 with two penalty minutes, three shots on goal, a hit and a block over 22:14 in his first game back in the lineup Thursday, but the Rangers took a shootout loss to the Avs.
Analysis: It was Dan Boyle's first game since the Oct. 9 season opener in which the veteran broke his hand, and the Rangers have to feel happy about getting him back even though they took the loss.

Rangers Activate Boyle

News: Dan Boyle (broken hand) was formally activated from injured reserve Thursday.
Analysis: The Rangers waived defenseman Michael Kostka to pave the way for Dan Boyle's activation. The blueliner, who has been out since opening night with the broken hand, will skate alongside Marc Staal on the top pairing and serve as the quarterback for the Rangers' top power-play unit.

Rangers' Boyle Will Play Thursday

News: Coach Alain Vigneault confirmed Dan Boyle (hand) will play Thursday against the Avalanche, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.
Analysis: Dan Boyle is still experiencing some lingering pain with his hand, but it doesn't appear to be a dramatic hindrance for him at this point. He was able to practice fully Wednesday while working on the top pairing and on the power play, which was good enough for the Rangers to feel comfortable bringing him back into the fold. The match against the Avalanche will mark Boyle's first game since suffering the injury in his team debut Oct. 9. He'll be officially activated from injured reserve in the hours leading up to Thursday's game.

Rangers' Boyle Likely To Return Thursday

News: Dan Boyle (hand) participated fully Wednesday and appears likely to play Thursday against the Avalanche, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Dan Boyle participated as part of a pairing with Marc Staal and also saw work on the power-play unit, a sign coach Alain Vigneault plans to use him in Thursday's lineup. The Rangers will likely check in with Boyle on how his hand feels after Thursday's morning skate as a final precautionary measure before formally activating him from IR.

Rangers' Boyle Targeting Weekend Return

News: Dan Boyle (hand) will not play Tuesday against the Penguins.
Analysis: Dan Boyle said that his broken hand is still not back at full strength, but the blueliner thinks he might be able to manage the pain and play Thursday against the Avalanche. A team doctor will re-examine his hand later Tuesday, but Boyle's level of participation in Wednesday's practice will likely determine if he'll be able to suit up in the team's next match. He's already missed 14 games due to the injury.

Rangers' Boyle Targeting A Return Next Week

News: Dan Boyle (broken hand) said he is targeting a return to the lineup at some point next week, Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Dan Boyle took part in a full-contact practice Friday for the first time since suffering the injury back on Oct. 9, signaling that he's nearly ready to return to game action. Because of his lengthy absence, however, it appears the Rangers want him to log multiple practices before activating him. If all goes well during his on-ice sessions the next few days, Boyle could be back in the lineup as soon as Tuesday's tilt with the Penguins.

Rangers' Boyle Practices With Contact

News: Dan Boyle (hand) took part in a full-contact practice Friday, Andrew Gross of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Dan Boyle appears another step closer to finally returning from the broken hand, as he had been practicing in a non-contact capacity over the last several days. While he didn't skate as part of a regular pairing and seems rather unlikely to play in either of the Rangers' two weekend tilts, there's a strong possibility he'll be ready to go by early next week. The Rangers will evaluate his performance in practice over the next few days before deciding whether or not he's ready for an activation.

Rangers' Boyle (Hand) Skates With Team Sunday

News: Dan Boyle participated in Sunday's optional practice.
Analysis: Dan Boyle has practiced on his own a lot lately, but finally returned to practice with the team Sunday, albeit wearing a non-contact jersey. He was also reportedly not using his right hand, suggesting he isn't at that point yet.

Rangers' Boyle Showing Improvement

News: Dan Boyle (hand) has skated the past four days on his own.
Analysis: Coach Alain Vigneault said the defenseman has been able to do everything but pass or shoot the puck, activities that he'll need to add to his regimen before the Rangers sign off on the health of his broken hand. Dan Boyle is at about the three-week mark of the four-to-six week timetable he was given for his recovery back on Oct. 9. It sounds promising that he could meet the shorter end of the timetable, or at least avoid missing the full six weeks.

Rangers' Boyle Out 4-To-6 Weeks With Broken Hand

News: Dan Boyle broke his hand blocking a shot Thursday and will miss four-to-six weeks as a result, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Dan Boyle is a big loss for the Rangers on the blue line. The team may shift the defensive lines around and will likely call up another defenseman, but Matt Hunwick figures to suit up as the sixth defenseman until Boyle returns.

Rangers' Boyle Registers Two Assists Monday

News: Dan Boyle gathered two assists in Monday's exhibition victory over the Flyers.
Analysis: Dan Boyle's skills in the offensive zone were on full display Monday, showing deft play-making ability on the power play and at even strength. He's set to pair up with the more defensive-minded Marc Staal this season, and should contend for another 30-point campaign.

Rangers Make Free Agent Splash With Boyle

News: Dan Boyle has signed a two-year deal with the Rangers, according to TSN.ca. The deal is reportedly worth $9 million.
Analysis: Dan Boyle is 37, but this might be a good landing place for him with the Rangers. The team came close to a title last season, but could have benefited from an extra guy who knows how to run a power play. Boyle should round out a very nice top four on the Blueshirts' blue line, along with budding star Ryan McDonagh, and the reliable Dan Girardi and Marc Staal.

Bolts In Hunt for UFA Boyle?

News: The Lightning are in the mix for Dan Boyle's services, reports Tampa Bay Times.
Analysis: The Wings, Leafs and Rangers are also apparently courting him, so this isn't a done deal by any means. He'd sure be a nice, right-shot option to help accelerate the power play.

Isles' Boyle Draws Free Agent Interest

News: The Red Wings, Rangers and Maple Leafs are thought to be interested in signing Dan Boyle, sportsnet.ca reports.
Analysis: Dan Boyle isn't expected to sign with the Islanders, who now hold his NHL rights. Though the blueliner turns 38 in July, he's coming off a season in which he notched 36 points in 75 games with the Sharks and retains utility with his ability in the transition game and on the power play.

Boyle Won't Sign With The Islanders

News: Dan Boyle has decided not to negotiate with the Islanders and will test free agency, according to the Islanders Point Blank.
Analysis: The Isles traded a fifth-round pick in next Friday's draft to acquire Dan Boyle's negotiating rights and now will look to flip those rights to a team he might be more willing to sign with. The Isles could certainly use the veteran puck moving defenseman but at this point in his career he may be looking for a team that is more of a Stanley Cup contender.

Boyle Unlikely To Sign With The Islanders

News: Dan Boyle has yet to discuss contract talks with the Islanders, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Apparently Dan Boyle will let the Islanders know by the end of this week whether or not he is interested in opening up contract talks with the team. These are not exactly the words of someone who sounds interested in moving to Long Island. Boyle would have more than a couple of suitors if he elects to pursue free agency and may decide that he would rather play for a team a little closer to Stanley Cup contention.

Sharks Deal Boyle To Islanders

News: Dan Boyle's rights were traded to the Islanders for a 2015 conditional fifth-round pick, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: In a similar fashion to the Jaroslav Halak trade, the Islanders will have the first priority to sign Dan Boyle before the free agency period begins. The team's chances of retaining Boyle would seem unlikely given that the defenseman will turn 38 years old in July and would presumably prefer to play for a contender, but the Islanders will do their best to persuade him otherwise. The conditional pick would turn into a fourth-rounder if Boyle ends up signing.

Sharks' Boyle Won't Return To Team In 2014-15

News: Dan Boyle will not return with the Sharks for the 2014-15 season, CSN's Brodie Brazil reports.
Analysis: At 37 years old, he may be at the end of the road, but if he is able to continue his career as a defenseman, it won't be with San Jose.
