There has not been a dull moment for Devils forward Brian Boyle this season. Four months ago, the 33-year-old veteran was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia, a type of bone marrow cancer. He worked his way back into the lineup after his diagnosis, and now he's preparing for his first NHL All-Star Weekend appearance.

The All-Star nod marks a return to Tampa Bay, where he spent three seasons of his career with the Lightning.

Boyle has been a steady force for the Devils, providing leadership on and off the ice. Watch Boyle speak about his fight against cancer and his emotional return to the ice in the Devils 82 Game Odyssey episode "Boyle's Fight."
