Isles' Boychuk Returns To Practice

News: Johnny Boychuk returned to practice Thursday, according to Newsday.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk is dealing with a lower body injury so the Islanders have been giving him time off from practice in order to heal. He will play Friday versus the Penguins.

Isles' Boychuk Misses Practice

News: Johnny Boychuk missed practice Wednesday, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk is still dealing with a knee injury -- nothing considered serious -- but the Islanders are trying to give him a day off when they can. He is fully expected to be on the ice when the Isles play their next game Friday versus the Penguins.

Offense Picking Back Up For Isles' Boychuk

News: Johnny Boychuk assisted on one of the Isles' two goals in their loss to the Lightning on Saturday.
Analysis: Since missing one game last weekend due to a knee injury, Johnny Boychuk has reemerged as an impact player on the offense end, notching an assist in each of his last three contests. He's not quite lighting the world on fire like he did over the first week of the season, but he's still notched an impressive two goals and 10 assists over 16 games.

Isles' Boychuk Likely To Play Tuesday

News: Johnny Boychuk (knee) was on the ice for morning skate and is expected to play Tuesday against the Avalanche, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk was held out of Sunday's shutout win over the Coyotes with the knee injury, but the Islanders insisted all along that the blueliner's ailment was minor. That would seem to be the case based on Boychuk's full participation in the morning session, clearing the way for him to replace Brian Strait on the Isles' back end. Boychuk isn't scoring nearly at the rate he was during the first couple weeks of the season, but thanks to his hot start, he's still sitting on a stellar nine points in 13 games.

Isles' Boychuk Misses Practice

News: Johnny Boychuk (knee) did not practice Monday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: The veteran blueliner has looked like a great addition to the Islanders blue line so far with two goals and seven assists through 13 games, but looks doubtful to play in Tuesday's game against the Avalanche.

Isles' Boychuk Out With Upper-Body Injury

News: Johnny Boychuk missed the game Saturday due to an upper-body injury.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk suffered the injury during the game versus the Kings on Thursday. The injury is not considered to be serious and he shouldn't miss more than a game or two.

Isles' Boychuk Won't Play Saturday

News: Johnny Boychuk (undisclosed) will not play Saturday against the Coyotes, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: No reason has been given for Johnny Boychuk's absence at this point, but Brian Strait will take his place on the blue line for the time being.

Isles' Boychuk Breaks Temporary Drought

News: Johnny Boychuk gathered two power-play assists in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Jets.
Analysis: After busting out with two goals and four assists over his first three games, Johnny Boychuk quickly cooled thereafter, going pointless over the next five games before Tuesday's showing. Boychuk's hot start still has him averaging roughly a point per game through nine contests, but it's more likely that he settles in somewhere between 30 or 40 points by season's end.

Isles' Boychuk A Scoring Machine

News: Johnny Boychuk contributed a power-play goal in Tuesday's 6-2 demolition of the Rangers.
Analysis: With six points (two goals, four assists) in just three games, Johnny Boychuk is already one-fourth of the way to his point total from all of last season. Boychuk's hot run of production almost certainly won't last, but with the blueliner likely to receive the most ice time of his career at both even strength and on the power play this season, he'll be in prime position to set personal bests in nearly every category.

Isles' Boychuk Keeps Rolling Saturday

News: Johnny Boychuk chipped in with two assists in Saturday's win over the Hurricanes.
Analysis: It was Johnny Boychuk's dependable play on defense that was expected to be the greatest contribution he brought to the Islanders, but he's instead made his mark with his puck-moving ability in the infant stages of the season. After averaging about one point every three games with the Bruins last year, Boychuk's already collected a goal and four assists in two games this year. While Boychuk should enjoy a larger offensive role on Long Island than in Boston, the odds of him finishing as a top-20 fantasy defenseman are still rather remote.

Boychuk Records Three Points In Isles' Debut

News: Johnny Boychuk recorded a career-high three points -- two on the power play -- in Friday's season-opening win over Carolina.
Analysis: Talk about what a change of scenery can do for a player. Johnny Boychuk, who averaged 20 seconds of power-play time over his last three seasons with Boston, played a whopping 2:47 with the man advantage in his first game with New York. Not only did the former Bruin record a goal and two assists, he also finished the night with two PIM and two hits, while logging a team-high 23:11 of ice time. If he continues to skate on the top power-play unit alongside John Tavares and Kyle Okposo, a 40-point season for Boychuk isn't out of the question.

Islanders Acquire Boychuk From Bruins

News: Johnny Boychuk was traded to the Islanders on Saturday in exchange for second-round picks in 2015 and 2016 and a conditional 2015 third-round pick, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: The haul of picks is a steep price for the Islanders to pay for a 30-year-old with one year and $3.6 million remaining on his contract, but one the team could afford given its multitude of injuries on the blue line. Though Johnny Boychuk is only a marginal talent on the offensive end, it's his hard hitting and puck-clearing skills in front of his own net that should prove most beneficial to the Islanders. He should immediately assume a top-four role for the Islanders and make life easier for goalie Jaroslav Halak.

Bruins' Boychuk Hopes To Stay Put

News: While there has been speculation that the Bruins might deal Johnny Boychuk, he would prefer to remain with the team, the Boston Herald reports.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk, who is on track to become a free agent after the coming season, carries a cap hit of $3,366,667 in 2014-15, and with the team dealing with salary cap issues, his name has been mentioned as a possible candidate to be dealt in order to free up some needed space under the cap. The rugged and hard-shooting Boychuk is coming off a 2013-14 season in which he recorded five goals and 23 points in 75 games, to go along with a plus-31 rating.

Bruins' Boychuk Scores In Loss

News: Johnny Boychuk potted a goal Wednesday night against the Red Wings.
Analysis: While the blueliner was registered an even rating Wednesday, he's plus-30 overall for the season, which ranks sixth in the league. Johnny Boychuk now has four goals and 18 assists in 69 games on the season.

Bruins' Boychuk Returns To Lineup

News: Johnny Boychuk (foot/ankle) returned to the Bruins' lineup Saturday against the Coyotes, seeing 22:58 worth of ice time.
Analysis: Though he had missed the Bruins' three previous games, the team didn't limit the rugged blueliner on Saturday. Only Zdeno Chara (23:20) saw more ice time in the contest than Johnny Boychuk, who has recorded 20 points and a plus-30 rating in 64 games to date.

Bruins' Boychuk Returns To Action

News: Johnny Boychuk (foot/ankle) is slated to play Saturday against the Coyotes.
Analysis: With Johnny Boychuk back in action, the B's will scratch fellow blueliners Corey Potter and Torey Krug on Saturday.

Bruins' Boychuk Could Play Saturday

News: The Boston Herald suggests that Johnny Boychuk (foot/ankle) has a chance to suit up against Phoenix on Saturday.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk -- who last played on Mar. 15 -- skated for the second consecutive day Friday, but was later scratched for the B's win over Colorado. His injury is being called a bruised right ankle, by csnne.com's Joe Haggerty.

Bruins' Boychuk Seemingly Out Friday

News: Johnny Boychuk (foot) did not take the ice for pregame warmups and is thus unlikely to play Friday, CSN New England's Joe Haggerty reports.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk took part in Friday's morning skate and appeared to be truly questionable. In his absence, Matt Bartkowski figures to skate on one of the three defensive pairs. Boychuk should have a chance to return for Saturday's game against the Coyotes.

Bruins' Boychuk A Game-Time Decision

News: Johnny Boychuk (foot) will be a game-time decision for Friday's game against the Avalanche, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk -- who took part in Friday's morning skate, will participate in warmups for the B's before the team decides whether to turn him loose Friday night, or hold him out, with a potential return Saturday against the Coyotes in mind.

Bruins Not Inclined To Rush Boychuk

News: Though Johnny Boychuk (foot) skated Thursday, coach Claude Julien suggested that he won't rush the blueliner back into the Bruins' lineup, the Boston Herald reports. "If he's not 100 percent, there's no reason whey he should play," Julien said. "Again, with the situation we're in, our guys on D have been pretty good overall. We've had a good group of guys that have come in and done the job, so no need to rush things here."
Analysis: With the trade deadline acquisitions of Andrej Meszaros and Corey Potter, the Bruins currently carry a surplus of blueliners, so at this stage there is no compelling reason to rush the rugged, hard-shooting Johnny Boychuk back. Now that Dennis Seidenberg is out for the year, Boychuk is second only to Zdeno Chara in terms of time on ice per game (21:10) for the surging B's.

Bruins' Boychuk Takes The Ice

News: Johnny Boychuk (foot) skated with the Bruins on Thursday.
Analysis: It was Johnny Boychuk's first time skating with his teammates since getting banged up this past Saturday against Carolina. While his presence on the ice Thursday is encouraging, the blueliner's status for Friday's game against Colorado remains unclear.

Bruins' Boychuk Still Out

News: Johnny Boychuk (foot) will not play Tuesday against the Devils.
Analysis: Coach Claude Julien noted that Johnny Boychuk is dealing with a bruise, which puts the blueliner in the day-to-day category in advance of Friday's game against the Avs.

Bruins Officially Rule Out Boychuk

News: Johnny Boychuk (foot) will not play Monday vs. the Wild, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Coach Claude Julien said Johnny Boychuk was too sore to take part in Monday's morning skate, with the team officially ruling out the defenseman for the night shortly thereafter. Boychuk would seem to be at risk of missing Tuesday's game vs. the Devils, barring a return to close to full health overnight.

Bruins' Boychuk Misses Monday Skate

News: Johnny Boychuk (foot) was not spotted at the Bruins' Monday morning skate.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk came out of Saturday's win over Carolina banged up, after crashing awkwardly into the boards and limping off the ice, as well as being stung later by a shot that he blocked. It's possible that his absence from Monday's skate was simply maintenance-related, though with the Bruins' surplus of blueliners, the team could decide to rest Boychuk on Monday against the Wild.

Bruins' Boychuk Suffers Likely Foot Bruise

News: Johnny Boychuk had X-rays on his foot after getting hit by a slap shot during Saturday's game, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports. Bruins coach Claude Julien said Boychuk is hurting but not injured.
Analysis: Johnny Boychuk looks to have escaped with a bruise but will still undergo precautionary X-rays. While he can't be considered a sure thing for Monday's game against the Wild, the 30-year-old defenseman seems like a pretty good bet to play.
