Dustin James Boyd (born July 16, 1986) is a Kazakhstani-Canadian professional ice hockey player under contract with Barys Astana of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL).

Playing career[edit]

After playing two seasons with the Moose Jaw Warriors of the Western Hockey League, Boyd was selected 98th overall in the third round of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft by the Calgary Flames. He made his NHL debut for the Flames on November 1, 2006, in a 3–2 away loss to the Detroit Red Wings. He played two games for the Flames before being returned to Omaha.

He scored his first NHL goal on January 6, 2007, on Marty Turco of the Dallas Stars. It was the game-winning goal. On Remembrance Day, November 11, 2008, Boyd received his first First Star of the Game in scoring two goals against the Toronto Maple Leafs in a 4–3 win.

In the 2009–10 season, his fourth with the Flames, he was traded to the Nashville Predators for a fourth round draft pick at the trade deadline on March 3, 2010.[1]

On June 29, 2010, he was traded by the Predators, along with teammate Dan Ellis, to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for Sergei Kostitsyn.[2] Two days later he then signed as a free agent to a one-year contract with the Canadiens on July 1, 2010.[3] On November 8, 2010, he was placed on waivers by the Canadiens.[4] He cleared waivers and was sent down to their AHL affiliate, the Hamilton Bulldogs. He remained under contract with Montreal and had since been called up and sent down once more.

On May 31, 2011, Boyd left the NHL and signed a one-year contract with Kazakh based KHL team, Barys Astana.[5]
