Playing career Edit

In 2002 - 2006, Boyd played for Moose Jaw Warriors of the WHL. Boyd was selected 98th overall in the third round of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft by the Calgary Flames. He made his NHL debut for the Flames on November 1, 2006, in a 3–2 away loss to the Detroit Red Wings. He played two games for the Flames before being sent to Omaha Ak-Sar-Ben Knights of the AHL.

He scored his first NHL goal on January 6, 2007, on Marty Turco of the Dallas Stars. It was the game-winning goal. On Remembrance Day, November 11, 2008, Boyd received his first First Star of the Game in scoring two goals against the Toronto Maple Leafs in a 4-3 win.

In 2007-08 and 2008-09 seasons with Flames, Boyd also played few games with Quad City Flames of the AHL.

In the 2009–10 season, his fourth with the Flames, he was traded to the Nashville Predators for a fourth round draft pick at the trade deadline on March 3, 2010.[1]

On June 29, 2010, he was traded by the Predators, along with teammate Dan Ellis, to the Montréal Canadiens in exchange for Sergei Kostitsyn.[2] Two days later he then signed as a free agent to a one-year contract with the Canadiens on July 1, 2010.[3] On November 8, 2010, he was placed on waivers by the Canadiens.[4] He cleared waivers and was sent down to their AHL affiliate, the Hamilton Bulldogs. He remained under contract with Montréal and had since been called up and sent down once more.

On May 31, 2011, Boyd left the NHL and signed a one-year contract with Kazakh based KHL team, Barys Astana.[5] In the 2017-18 and at the beginning of the 2018-19 played Boyd for Dynamo Moskva of the KHL, but moved back to Astana in 2018.

He was also a member of the Canadian gold-medal-winning team in the 2006 World Hockey Championship.

In 2015, Boyd gained the Kazakh citizenship and played for Kazakhstan at the 2016 World Championship and at the 2017 and 2019 World Championships Division IA.
