Nashville Predators

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.

The Devils have signed Brian Boyle to a two-year deal worth $5.1M ($2.55M AAV).

Boyle was with the Lightning since the 2015 season before being dealt to the Maple Leafs at last year’s deadline. Boyle finished the campaign with 13 goals and 12 assists (25 points) in a combined 75 games, but just three assists in 21 games in Toronto. Boyle is a solid bottom-6 forward that is solid on the face-off dot, winning over 50 percent for his career.

The Maple Leafs have acquired Brian Boyle from the Lightning for Byron Froese and a 2017 2nd round pick.

Boyle is a monster at 6-foot-7, 244 lbs. and is a versatile forward that can play either centre or the wing. Boyle is expected to solidify the Maple Leafs’ bottom-6 and brings 100 games of playoff experience to an inexperienced team. Boyle had 13 goals and nine assists (22 points) in 54 games with the Lightning this season.

Boyle (lower-body) will not play Tuesday; questionable for Thursday.

Boyle left last Saturday’s game with a lower-body injury and will miss tonight’s game vs. the Jets. Head coach Jon Cooper didn’t sound optimistic that Boyle would be available for Thursday either. Adam Erne could make his NHL debut on Tuesday with Boyle out.

Boyle (upper-body) will not play on Wednesday.

Boyle missed Saturday’s game in Philadelphia with an upper-body injury, returned to the lineup on Monday, but it appears as if he re-aggravated the injury and will come out of the lineup tonight. With Boyle out, the Lightning have recalled Erik Condra from Syracuse (AHL) to play tonight.

Boyle (upper—body) is expected to return to the Lightning lineup on Monday.

Boyle missed Saturday’s game with a upper-body injury, but is expected to be back in the lineup tonight in Nashville. The Lightning went with seven defensemen with Boyle out, so expect the more traditional 12 forward, six defensemen look tonight with the big forward back in. He has four goals and one assist in 18 games this season.
