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.

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

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.

It would be his second championship as he won the Cup with Tampa Bay in 2004.

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

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.
