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

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
