Chicago, Ill.- The Chicago Blackhawks have recalled defenseman Nick Boynton from the American Hockey League’s Rockford IceHogs.

Boynton, 31, was acquired by the Blackhawks from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for future considerations on March 2 before being assigned to Rockford. The Nobleton, Ontario, native has registered seven points (1g-6a) and 59 penalty minutes in 42 National Hockey League games with the Ducks this season and five assists and 22 penalty minutes in 15 AHL tilts between Rockford and the Manitoba Moose.

Boynton has racked up 135 points (33g-102a) and 810 penalty minutes in 547 career NHL regular season contests spanning 10 seasons with the Boston Bruins (1999-2006), Phoenix Coyotes (2006-08), Florida Panthers (2008-09) and Ducks (2009-10). He was selected 21st overall (round 1) by the Bruins in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft. Boynton appeared in three postseasons with the Bruins (2002-04), posting six points (1g-5a) in 18 Stanley Cup Playoff matchups. He was named to the 2002 NHL All-Rookie Team and skated in the 2004 NHL All-Star game as a member of the Eastern Conference squad. 

Prior to turning pro, Boynton helped the Ontario Hockey League’s Ottawa 67’s capture the 1999 Memorial Cup and was named the most valuable player of the tournament. He tallied 144 assists, 185 points and 410 penalty minutes in 218 career regular-season games with Ottawa spanning four seasons (1995-99).

Next Home Game: Friday, March 19 vs. Peoria Rivermen: Game time is 7:05 p.m. The first 3,000 fans into the building will pick up a player figurine of either Mike Brennan, Evan Brophey or Jake Dowell courtesy of EcoHome Expert, Inc. Kanga Roof. Also, the IceHogs will be giving away five game-worn jerseys. The jerseys that will be given away include Matt Keith, Daryl Boyle, Ryan Flinn, Jack Skille and Brian Connelly.
