Jared Rittenhouse Boll (born May 13, 1986) is an American professional ice hockey forward who is currently playing for the Anaheim Ducks of the National Hockey League (NHL). He formerly played for 9 seasons with the Columbus Blue Jackets organization, known primarily for his role as an enforcer.
Boll was originally drafted by the Kingston Frontenacs, but chose to attempt playing in U.S. college, by playing for the Lincoln Stars. While there he was named captain of the Stars. After a very successful 2nd year in the USHL, he was offered a deal to play in the NCAA at the University of Minnesota Duluth. He decided against it to play in the Ontario Hockey League. His rights were acquired by the Plymouth Whalers in a trade for their 6th Round OHL Priority Selection draft pick in 2006. Boll was named an alternate captain of the Whalers and was a fan favorite, as he was in Lincoln, spending two seasons with the Whalers and helping the team win the 2007 OHL Championship over the Sudbury Wolves on his 21st birthday.
Appearing in 75 games for Columbus during the 2008–09 NHL season, Boll scored 4 goals to go with 10 assists.
On March 26, 2015, the National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety suspended Boll for three games, without pay, for an illegal check to the head of Anaheim Ducks forward Patrick Maroon during a game two days earlier.
On March 24, 2016, Boll was again suspended by the National Hockey League’s Department of Player Safety, this time for four games, for a hit it described as "both excessively late and incredibly forceful" against Philadelphia Flyers' forward Pierre-Edouard Bellemare.  Boll, a repeat offender under the terms of the league's Collective Bargaining Agreement, forfeited $82,926.84 in salary as a result.
Boll's eleven year tenure within the Blue Jackets organization came to an end on June 30, 2016 when the team, who was up against the salary cap, placed him on unconditional waivers for the purpose of buying out the final year of his contract. On July 5, 2016, Boll agreed to a two-year contract as a free agent with the Anaheim Ducks.
