Brian Boyle's fight against cancer continues to inspire people in all sorts of ways.
Tony Capparelli, an artist from Oradell, New Jersey, showed his creative inspiration by producing a #BoyleStrong mural dedicated to the Devils forward and his fight against Chronic Myeloid Leukemia in New York.
Capparelli is an adjunct illustration professor at both Fashion Institute of Technology and Seton Hall University and did the mural at 28th Street and 7th Avenue in Manhattan. The work was done as part of ChalkFIT, an FIT initiative that emboldens artists to complete works on the university's campus. He also shared progress of his creation as it was ongoing.
Capparelli, who has completed works of art for Devils programs and at various pregame ceremonies honoring Devils players, completed his mural just in time for Boyle to return to practice for the first time since his diagnosis on Sept. 19. His work also caught the eye of Devils president Hugh Weber, who promised two free Devils tickets to those who tweeted photos of themselves in front of the mural to him.
Boyle responded in kind, posting a message on Twitter thanking the artist for his efforts.
