The Predators have acquired Brian Boyle from the Devils for a 2019 second-round pick.
After Austin Watson was suspended indefinitely, the Predators were in search of some bottom-6 help and they found it in Boyle. Boyle doesn’t have a lot of flair to his game but he’s a reliable two-way centre who can be a net-front asset on the power-play. Boyle has already set a career-high in power-play goals (6) and points (8), giving him a total of 13 goals and 19 points in 47 games this season.
