Playing career[edit]

Bootland was drafted 252nd overall in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft by the Colorado Avalanche from the Toronto St. Michael's Majors of the Ontario Hockey League. After his final year in the OHL, Bootland signed with the Detroit Red Wings as a free agent to a three-year contract on August 29, 2002.

Bootland made his NHL debut with the Red Wings in the 2003–04 season, recording two points (1–1–2) and 74 PIM in 22 games. Bootland spent the next three years with the Red Wings affiliate, the Grand Rapids Griffins of the AHL before getting recalled by the Red Wings on March 5, 2007, playing in 6 games.

On July 6, 2007, Bootland signed with the New York Islanders. He appeared in 4 games with the Islanders before he was traded to the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for Matt Keith on January 9, 2008.

On October 7, 2008, Bootland signed a 25 Game Professional Tryout Agreement with the Manitoba Moose of the AHL. On December 15, 2008, Bootland signed with Salzburg EC in Austria.[1]

On September 2, 2009, Bootland signed with the Kalamazoo Wings of the ECHL. Darryl was signed to the Wings by his brother Nick, who was the Wings Director of Hockey Operations and Head Coach.[2] While starting the 2009–10 season with the Wings, Bootland then signed for a second try-out stint with the Moose.[3] Upon his return to Kalamazoo Bootland left again for Austria, signing with the Vienna Capitals on February 1, 2010.[4]

The following season, Darryl continued his journeyman career, by returning to the Islanders minor-league affiliates in accepting a try-out to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers training camp. On October 1, 2010, he was assigned and signed with the Islanders CHL affiliate, the Odessa Jackalopes for the 2010–11 season.[5]

After returning to the Kalamazoo Wings for the 2011–12 season, Bootland produced his best numbers since 2006, scoring 53 points in 67 contests. A free agent, Bootland opted for a second stint in the CHL, signing a one-year contract with the Allen Americans on July 25, 2012.[6]
