Current Team: San Jose Sharks
First NHL Team: Florida Panthers
Position: Defense
Birthdate: July 12, 1976
Birthplace: Ottawa, Ontario


After playing hockey in college Dan Boyle was surprisingly never drafted – scouts thought he was too small to be an NHL player. Finally, in 1998, he signed as a free agent with the Florida Panthers and his pro career began.


And what a career it’s been. In 2002, Dan was traded to Tampa Bay. With that team his dreams came true as he lifted the coveted Stanley Cup over his head in 2004. Unfortunately, in 2007 an wrist injury limited him to just 37 games.

Dan’s final move to the San Jose Sharks has proved to be a good one. He was the top-scoring defenseman in the team for the 2008-09 season. So much for being “too small.”


Hockey Highlights

While in Tampa Bay Dan hosted a weekly hockey-related radio show called Boyle’s Blue Line.

    Pats. The only way they would lose would be due to the deflated balls as an illegitimate way of getting to the Super Bowl. They wouldn't deserve to win in the eyes of some people. Maybe even the NFL. Besides that, the Patriots will take this win.  And lets be honest, nobody wants to see the Seahawks win two years in a row except for the fans that became fans once they saw that they were good. (Yes the shots have been fired.)

The highest I go is about the middle of the pitch :p :p :p So basically you play more of an attacking right midfield? That's interesting.  I'm guessing you play a 4-2-3-1 ? I play RM and LM. I'm a Box to box midifielder though. I rarely go through to the middle and I play wide.
