The Patriot Ledger newspaper of Quincey, Mass., did a feature story today on Brian Boyle, hometown boy and former Kings forward who was traded to the New York Rangers on June 27. Boyle signed a two-year contract with the Rangers after the trade and will contend for a spot on the NHL team during training camp.
In the story, Boyle said about his time with the Kings, “It could have gone better, obviously. I put a ton of pressure on myself. It wasn’t that I was lethargic, or thought I’d earned a spot (in Los Angeles). It was kind of the opposite. I let things get to me a little too much … but I think that’s going to be beneficial, as a learning experience.”
