Dan Boyle is a Canadian defenseman on the San Jose Sharks.
Boyle was undrafted after playing college hockey at Miami University. He was signed by Flordia in 1998, and joined the team that season. His first full season was in 2000-01, when he finished with 22 points in 69 games. He was traded to Tampa Bay in 2001, where he developed into one of the top offensive defensemen in the NHL, recording 53 points in both 2002-03 and 2005-06. He won his first Stanley Cup with the Lightning in 2004, and spent the following season with Djurgardens IF of the Elitserien. After posting a career high of 20 goals and 63 points in 2006-07, Boyle spent one more season with Tampa Bay before being traded to San Jose. He has been solid in San Jose, adding offensive depth and veteran leadership to the Sharks’ blueline.
Boyle played for Team Canada at the 2005 World Championships, winning a silver medal.
