Nicholas Carl Boynton (born January 14, 1979) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman who is currently an unrestricted free agent.

Playing careerEdit

Boynton grew up playing minor hockey in his hometown of Nobleton, Ontario with the NobleKing Knights before moving to AAA with the Richmond Hill-Vaughan Kings of the OMHA. He played bantam AAA with the Kings before signing as a 15-year old with the Caledon Canadians Jr.A. club of the Metro Junior Hockey League in 1994–95.

Boynton played for the Boston Bruins prior to joining the Phoenix Coyotes. He was drafted in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft by Boston (He was originally drafted by the Washington Capitals in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft). Shortly before his first training camp, he was diagnosed with Type I Diabetes but the disease has not affected his ability to play hockey.

His best season was 2003–04 when he had 30 points. During the NHL lockout season of 2004–05, Boynton played for the Nottingham Panthers in the British Elite Ice Hockey League, memorably scoring the equalising goal in the British Championship Grand Final. On June 26, 2006, he was traded to the Phoenix Coyotes in exchange for fellow defenceman Paul Mara.

After two seasons with the Coyotes Boynton was traded at the 2008 NHL Entry Draft along with Keith Ballard and a second round pick to the Florida Panthers for Olli Jokinen on June 20, 2008.[1] In the 2008-09 season, Boynton regained his scoring touch and posted 21 points in 68 games for the Panthers. During the season on February 27, 2009, Boynton was sent home from a Panthers road trip and missed three games for disciplinary reasons, later revealed to be after an argument with coach Peter DeBoer.[2]

On July 9, 2009, he signed a one-year contract with the Anaheim Ducks for the 2009-10 season. He was then assigned to the Manitoba Moose of the AHL.

On March 2, 2010, he was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks, he was then assigned to AHL affiliate, the Rockford IceHogs.[3] Boynton was later recalled to the Blackhawks and made his debut in a 4-2 loss to the Ducks on March 17, 2010. On June 9, 2010, he won his first Stanley Cup with the Chicago Blackhawks.[4]

On February 26, 2011, Boynton was claimed off of waivers by the Philadelphia Flyers.

Personal lifeEdit

Nick is a single father with two daughters; Emmerson and Bryar. He spends the off-season with them at his home in Phoenix.[5]
