Darryl Boyce (born July 7, 1984) is a Canadian ice hockey centre for the JyP HT Jyvaskyla of the SM-liiga.

Playing careerEdit

Boyce's playing career got a kick start when he helped the Summerside Turk's Red Wings win an Island Junior Hockey League championship as an underage player in 1999-2000. Though much younger than his teammates at the time, he learned the ropes quickly and was an important part of their success. Before helping the Red Wings he helped guide the Summerside Kinsmen Midget AAA team to an Island Championship with his solid two way play and elite leader status. He also represented Team Atlantic at the World U17 that seaon in New Glasgow NS. He then moved on to play junior hockey for the Parry Sound Shamrocks of the OPJHL in 2000–01, before moving on to Major Junior with the St. Michael's Majors of the Ontario Hockey League.

With the Majors, from 2001–02 until 2004–05, Boyce skated in 262 OHL games, scoring 145 regular-season and 22 playoff points (the latter in 51 total playoff games)

Undrafted, Boyce enrolled with the University of New Brunswick Varsity Reds and in his first season in 2005–06, was named UNB male rookie of the year with 32 points in 28 games. In his two seasons with the Reds he won a CIS National Championship.

Boyce began his professional career in the 2007–08 season, originally signing a contract with the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League. After starting the season with 22 points in 32 games with the Marlies, Boyce was signed by parent club, the Toronto Maple Leafs, to a two-year entry level contract on January 1, 2008.[1]

Boyce was recalled to the Leafs to play his first NHL game on January 24, 2008, against the Washington Capitals, but only played 5 shifts as he left the game during his fifth shift with a separated shoulder. He played a total of 3 minutes and 20 seconds. He underwent successful surgery but missed the remainder of the season.

Darryl did not play his second NHL game until December 30, 2010, scoring his first NHL point, an assist, with the Leafs, against the Columbus Blue Jackets in Toronto. Two days later on January 1, 2011, Boyce scored his first NHL goal in Ottawa against Mike Brodeur of the Senators. On July 14, 2011, Boyce signed a one-year contract with the Maple Leafs. [2]

On February 25, 2012, he was picked up off of waivers by the Columbus Blue Jackets.[3]
