College Hockey:
Union defenseman Boyle leaves school to play in new USPHL

According to the Daily Gazette, defenseman Tim Boyle has left Union and will not return for his sophomore season.

Instead, Boyle will be playing junior hockey for the South Shore Kings of the new United States Premier Hockey League after posting two assists in 15 games in 2012-13.

“Tim Boyle is no longer in our program and is pursuing other opportunities,” Union coach Rick Bennett said Thursday to the Gazette. “We are not going to comment on people that aren’t in our program.”

Boyle, a fourth-round Ottawa Senators’ pick in the 2012 NHL draft, is the younger brother of former Boston College forward and current New York Rangers’ forward Brian Boyle.
