Boyd Kane (born April 18, 1978) is a Canadian professional ice hockey left winger who plays for the KHL Medveščak Zagreb of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL).

Playing career[edit]

Initially drafted 72nd overall in the 1996 NHL Entry Draft by the Pittsburgh Penguins, Pittsburgh failed to come to terms with Kane on a contract. He re-entered the draft in 1998 and was selected by the New York Rangers 114th overall. He split his first three professional seasons between the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League and the Charlotte Checkers of the ECHL before finally earning a full-time spot with Hartford in 2001–02. Prior to the 2002–03 season, however, he was traded to the Tampa Bay Lightning for Gordie Dwyer, spending the season with the Springfield Falcons.

Kane signed with the Philadelphia Flyers in the off-season and while he played the majority of the 2003–04 season with the Philadelphia Phantoms, he played in his first seven NHL games with the Flyers. During the NHL Lockout he captained the Phantoms to a Calder Cup Championship.

After signing with the Washington Capitals in the off-season, he was sent down to the Hershey Bears where he was part of another run to a Calder Cup Championship.

He returned to Philadelphia in the off-season and made the Flyers final roster out of training camp prior to the 2006–07 NHL season. He was later sent down to the Phantoms.

On July 12, 2009, Kane signed to return with the Washington Capitals, and has played for their AHL team the Hershey Bears since.

On July 3, 2013, Kane signed a one-year contract with Croatian club, KHL Medveščak Zagreb of the Kontinental Hockey League, re-uniting with former Hershey Bears head coach Mark French.
