Has been named to a Canadian team for the third time in his career -- was a member of the "taxi" squad at the 2006 Olympics and won a silver medal at the 2005 World Championship.
Was added to the 2006 Olympic team, along with Jay Bouwmeester, after injuries to Scott Niedermayer and Ed Jovanovski.
Boyle after Canada captured a silver medal at the 2005 World Championship: "Maybe another team would be happy with a silver medal but, for us, this is disappointing. We came here for gold. It was a fun experience with the guys and everything, but it was disappointing in the end."
I've never seen anything like that. The great thing is I don't know how many times guys bailed me out where they had to score to keep it alive and they did every time. It was amazing. It's not the way we draw it up, to go 20 rounds here, but obviously it's a big win.
