Brian Paul Boyle (born December 18, 1984) is an American professional ice hockey forward for the New York Rangers of the National Hockey League. He attended St. Sebastian's School in Needham, Massachusetts for high school before moving on to Boston College. Brian grew up in Hingham, MA just south of Boston.
Playing career 
Boyle was drafted in the first round, 26th overall, by the Los Angeles Kings in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. He played four seasons at Boston College before making his professional debut with the Kings' American Hockey League affiliate, the Manchester Monarchs, in 2007.
In the 2007–08 season, Boyle made his National Hockey League debut with the Kings against the New Jersey Devils on February 2, 2008. He scored his first NHL goal that same night against Martin Brodeur in a 6-3 defeat. He scored four goals in his first seven NHL games, three in his first four.
During the 2012 Stanley Cup playoffs Boyle suffered a concussion after being hit hard by Ottawa Senators' forward Chris Neil. Boyle subsequently missed three games. Earlier in the same series, Ottawa defenceman Matt Carkner received a one-game suspension for repeatedly punching Boyle in the face while Boyle was down against the side boards.
