Union Defenseman Tim Boyle Leaves Team For Juniors

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

Tim Boyle's departure leaves Union College with just eight defenseman, four returning and four newcomers.

Ottawa Senators draft pick Tim Boyle has left the Union College hockey program, according to Ken Schott of the Schenectady Daily Gazette. The Hingham, Mass. native played for Nobles & Greenough in the New England Prep School Ice Hockey Association before heading to Union.

Boyle has been added to the roster and is expected to join the South Shore Kings in the USPHL Premier Division. He is the younger brother of New York Rangers star Brian Boyle who played college hockey at Boston College.

Boyle would be eligible to play at another school immediately next fall after he plays a year of junior hockey. The Ottawa Senators' fourth round pick in 2012 never panned out as hoped for Union coach Rick Bennett. Boyle only played in 15 games, adding just two assists.
