Boyle expected to miss four-to-six weeks following wrist surgery
Boyle got hurt in a freak locker room accident Saturday night after the Lightning's 2-1 preseason loss to Washington. The defenseman was distracted while hanging up his skate. The skate slipped off the hook and hit Boyle in his left wrist, severing three tendons.
Boyle, 31, is coming off an impressive regular season in which he played all 82 games, recording 20 goals and 43 assists.
