Blackhawks acquire D Nick Boynton from Anaheim
The Chicago Blackhawks added to their blue line on Tuesday by acquiring defenseman Nick Boynton from the Anaheim Ducks for future considerations and have assigned him to Rockford, their AHL farm team.

Boynton, a 31-year-old signed as a free agent by the Ducks in July, had been playing with the AHL Manitoba Moose. He was assigned to the minors last month after passing through waivers.

Boynton appeared in 42 games for the Ducks this season, scoring a goal and adding 6 assists for 7 points with a plus-1 rating and 59 PIM. The native of Nobelton, Ontario, has played 10 NHL seasons with Boston (2000-06), Phoenix (2006-08), Florida (2008-09) and Anaheim (2009-10). He has 33 goals, 135 points and 810 PIM in 547 career NHL games.






Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.

— Capitals coach Barry Trotz on Alex Ovechkin, who enters February tied for the NHL lead in goals
