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."
The last time I did it was 1994 and surprise, 20 years later it’s still working. I don’t do it very much, though. I don’t think I had it. I’m kind of surprised. It was probably because I went to church before the game.
