Boyle, a 6-foot-1, 191-pound defenseman, made his professional debut with the Admirals on April 2 at Philadelphia. The 21-year-old native of Lethbridge, Alberta, played the final six games of Norfolk’s 2007-08 season under an Amateur Tryout Contract, registering a +3 rating with two penalty minutes.

“We are excited to sign Daryl Boyle,” said Loiselle. “He played six games with us last season and fit in well with the team – particularly being paired with Vladimir Mihalik on defense. He handles himself well under pressure and thinks the game well. If Daryl continues to progress, he has a great chance to play in the National Hockey League.”

Prior to joining the Admirals, Boyle skated in his fourth season with the  Wheat Kings, serving as their team captain. In 61 games this season, the 21-year-old notched ten goals and 31 assists while registering 74 penalty minutes, six power play goals and a +16 rating. He was named Brandon’s team MVP and top defenseman after leading all Wheat Kings defensemen in scoring this season.

Boyle scored 31 goals and 131 points in 262 games for the Wheat Kings. In 47 playoff games, he had three goals and 17 points.

Boyle’s teammates in Norfolk this past April included former Wheat King and fellow Lethbridge product Robert Klinkhammer.
