Following up on an earlier report, Dan Boyle is expected to announce his retirement on Wednesday.

Boyle will do so during a press conference at the San Jose Sharks' SAP Center. Though Boyle's final team with the New York Rangers, it makes sense that he's closing his career with the Sharks. His 431 games with San Jose makes it his most prolific stint with a single franchise over his career and he had some of his best seasons with the Sharks, including his three straight campaigns of at least 50 points from 2008-09 through 2010-11.

Dan Boyle is projected to announce his retirement this week.

He will reportedly hang up his skates with the assistance of the San Jose Sharks, where he played six seasons and 431 of his career 1,093 contests.

Dan Boyle said he is leaning toward retirement because of family concerns.

However, he still thinks he can play and his agent has indicated there will be interest in the veteran's services. His time with the Rangers is over though and he left with a heated exchange with Larry Brooks of the New York Post.

It seems safe to assume that Dan Boyle has played his last game with the New York Rangers.

It remains to be seen if Boyle will retire or seek to extend his NHL career, but he almost certainly won't re-sign with the New York Rangers. He spent some time as a healthy scratch this season and the Rangers chose to scratch him for their critical Game 5, which was very telling.

Do not be surprised if Dan Boyle retires.

Boyle may have played in his last NHL game on Thursday as he was a healthy scratch Saturday for the first time in the five game series. Boyle had 10 goals and 24 points in the regular season with one helper in the playoffs. The 39-year-old had 163 goals and 605 points in 1,093 regular season games and chipped in with 17 goals and 81 points in 130 playoff contests.

Dan Boyle will be scratched in Game 5 against Pittsburgh.

Boyle has averaged just under 20 minutes a game of ice time through the first four games, and picked up an assist, but with the Rangers on the brink of elimination Coach Alain Vigneault is looking to shake things up.
Apr 23 - 2:46 PM

Dan Boyle had an assist in a 5-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 1 of their first round series.

Boyle finished the 2015-16 regular season with 10 goals and 24 points in 74 contests. While Boyle is not as big an offensive threat as he once was, he does bring a wealth of playoff experience to the table. He also stepped up during the 2015 playoffs with 10 points in 19 contests, so it will be interesting to see if he'll enjoy a similar spike in offensive production in the 2016 postseason.

Dan Boyle scored his 10th goal of the season during Saturday's 3-2 win over Detroit.

While the 10 goals is about in line from what you'd expect from Boyle, the 24 points in 74 games belies his talent. Be that as it may, he's scored 19 goals and 44 points in two seasons in New York.
Apr 9 - 4:06 PM

Coach Alain Vigneault says he's resting Dan Boyle on Tuesday night against Tampa Bay.

Boyle has quietly posted nine goals and 23 points with 104 blocks through 72 games this season. Not quite what we're used to from Boyle, but pretty good considering his veteranship.
Apr 5 - 6:17 PM

Dan Boyle scored a goal in a 4-2 win against Columbus Monday night.

Boyle has nine goals and 23 points in 72 games this season. He's set to become an unrestricted free agent after the Rangers' playoff run and given that he'll turn 40 in July, this might be his final run at the Stanley Cup. It would be his second championship as he won the Cup with Tampa Bay in 2004.
Apr 5 - 10:02 AM

Dan Boyle scored a goal in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the San Jose Sharks.

Boyle spent six seasons with the Sharks between 2008 and 2014. His goal in the first period tied the game at one. Derick Brassard and Marc Staal picked up the assists on New York's only goal. Boyle has eight goals and 21 points in 65 games.
Mar 19 - 6:53 PM

Dan Boyle ended his personal 13 game goal drought with a beauty during Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to LA.

Boyle started the play by helping dig out the puck and get it up the ice, then he simply followed it up, found his spot, and zipped one bar-down on Jonathan Quick. Perhaps not quite vintage Boyle, but sill a beaut. The 39-year-old blue liner now has six goals and 19 points on the season.
Mar 18 - 1:44 AM

Dan Boyle had an assist in the Rangers' 6-4 loss to the New York Islanders on Sunday.

It was Boyle's 600th point in 1,078 career games. Only 35 other blueliners in NHL history have reached that milestone. The 39-year-old has six goals and 19 points in 59 contests this season.
Mar 7 - 9:28 AM

Dan Boyle (flu) was able to play Wednesday against Chicago.

He didn't skate Tuesday because of flu-like symptoms, but he was back on the ice Wednesday morning. Boyle scored his sixth goal of the year during a third-period power play and he finished with a minus-2 rating in a 5-3 loss to the Blackhawks.
