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

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
