Bradley Keith Boyes (born April 17, 1982) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player currently with the Florida Panthers of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Boyes went to Hazel McCallion Senior Public School and Clarkson Secondary School, both in Mississauga, before moving to Erie, Pennsylvania. His mother is a teacher. His father is a school principal, he was the principal of Champlain Trail Public School. His father is also one of the directors of the Streetsville Hockey League, a small house league based in Streetsville, Ontario.[1]

Despite living in the Greater Toronto Area, Boyes was an Ottawa Senators fan growing up.[2]

Playing career[edit]

Boyes played several years of roller hockey for the Mississauga Rattlers. He was a member of the Mississauga Reps AAA hockey team before being drafted by the Erie Otters. Boyes won the J. Ross Robertson Cup with the Otters in 2002.

Boyes was drafted by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the first round, 24th overall in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft.

He was traded to the San Jose Sharks along with Alyn McCauley and a 1st round selection in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft (who would be Mark Stuart) in exchange for Owen Nolan.

Boyes was later traded from the Sharks to the Boston Bruins in a 3-way deal that saw Jeff Jillson go to Buffalo Sabres, Curtis Brown go to San Jose, and Brad Boyes and Andy Delmore go to Boston on March 9, 2004.

Boyes scored his first NHL goal on October 9, 2005, against Sébastien Caron of the Pittsburgh Penguins. He scored his first NHL hat trick on March 18, 2006 against Cam Ward of the Carolina Hurricanes

Boyes with the St. Louis Blues

The Bruins traded Boyes to the St. Louis Blues in exchange for Dennis Wideman on February 27, 2007.

On February 27, 2011, Boyes was traded by the Blues to the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for a second round pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.[3] Boyes scored a goal in each of his first two games with the Sabres.

On July 1, 2012, he signed as a free agent to a one-year, $1 million deal with the New York Islanders.[4] With ambition to move on from a disappointing tenure with the Sabres, Boyes rediscovered his scoring touch during the shortened 2012–13 season to score 35 points in 48 games on the Islanders top scoring line alongside John Tavares and Matt Moulson.[5]

Unsigned in the off-season Boyes was offered a professional try-out contract by the Islanders and the Florida Panthers. He chose to attend the Panthers training camp[6] and signed a one year deal with them on September 28, 2013.[7]
