After being acquired by the Maple Leafs, Boyle tallied only three assists in 21 regular-season games and two assists in six playoff games. He had 13 goals and nine assists in 54 games with the Lightning last season.

The 6-foot-6, 244-pound Boyle has 169 points (93 goals, 76 assists) in 624 career NHL games.
