Nick Boynton, a former defenseman with the Boston Bruins and other NHL teams, might be a little delayed in getting to the announcer’s booth to give his commentary of action at Thursday night’s Sabres-Coyotes game at First Niagara Center.
Boynton is accused of causing a disturbance at the Buffalo Creek Casino on Wednesday night and fighting with Buffalo police officers assigned there to provide security.
“He was abusive to the staff at the casino, and when officers tried to take him into custody, he bit one of them on the finger,” a police source said.
Boynton, a 36-year-old native of Nobleton, Ont., was detained by police and will be charged with assault, criminal mischief and harassment.
Boynton joined the Coyotes’ broadcast team prior to this season.
GLENDALE, ARIZONA --- The Arizona Coyotes have issued the following statement regarding Nick Boynton.
"Early this morning, Coyotes radio color analyst Nick Boynton was involved in a situation at a Buffalo casino. A police investigation is underway. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and until the continuing legal process is completed, we will have no further comment. Mr. Boynton has been placed on a leave of absence."

Jen Patterson, a contributor to Comcast SportsNet Chicago and its Web site, is out at the local cable sports channel….
“Jen Patterson is no longer an employee of Comcast SportsNet Chicago and we wish her well on her future endeavors,” the channel said in a statement. “Per company policy, we have no further comment on personnel matters.”
Patterson declined comment.
Pegged in January as “a rising on-air and off-air TV talent in our city” by Charlie Schumacher, CSN Chicago’s senior news director, Patterson seemed on the verge of gaining status as a bold-face name nearly on par with those she covered.
Just last Friday, the Chicago Sun-Times’ Bill Zwecker noted in his column that Patterson and the Chicago Blackhawks’ Nick Boynton “seem to be a nice cozy item ... looking very lovey-dovey” at various events.

In the latest episode of The Bolts Beat, JJ and co-host Mike Corcoran cover the Lightning’s recent preseason road trip, roster moves made thereafter, NHL discipline issues (including the recent Nick Boynton/Blair Jones incident), predictions for how Tampa Bay’s final roster may end up, fantasy hockey strategy and Jon (of course) continues his New York Jets elation, much to the dismay of Mike and fellow contributor, Tampa Bay Lightning.com’s Mark Pukalo.

TORONTO (September 24, 2010) – Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Nick Boynton has been suspended for one game for making a throat slashing gesture towards Tampa Bay Lightning player Blair Jones during NHL pre-season game #11 on Wednesday, Sept. 22.
Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, and based on his average annual salary, Boynton will forfeit $2,688.17. The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.
The incident occurred at 13:04 of the second period. He was assessed a game misconduct (Rule 75.5) for his actions.
Boynton will miss the Blackhawks’ season opener at Colorado on October 7.

Anaheim’s search for a veteran defenseman has led to the signing of former Panthers defenseman Nick Boynton to a one-year contract.
from Steve Gorten of Florida Panthers blog at the Sun-Sentinel,
I spoke to Nick Boynton by phone on Friday, and as you might expect, he said, “I’m pretty upset about waking up this morning and getting sent home.” He also said he was still in a little bit of shock.
I understand where Boynton is coming from. I also understand where coach Pete DeBoer and general manager Jacques Martin are coming from.
I think the argument between DeBoer and Boynton after Thursday’s game was a little more heated than Boynton described it—although Boynton admitted he raised his voice and used an expletive when asking DeBoer if he was good enough to play—but definitely not so intense that Boynton charged in and got in DeBoer’s face.
First, Boynton’s side.

Florida defenseman Nick Boynton has been dismissed from the team for disciplinary reasons and will not be with the team for the remainder of the team’s three game road trip.
Boynton, acquired from Phoenix over the summer as part of the Olli Jokinen trade, played Thursday in New York and traveled with the team to its suburban New Jersey hotel after the game. According to roomate Keith Ballard, Boynton was upset with the team’s decision to send him back to South Florida. It’s possible, with the NHL trade deadline coming on Wednesday that Boynton has played his last game with the Panthers.
The National Hockey League announced today disciplinary action resulting from NHL game #251 between the Phoenix Coyotes and San Jose Sharks, November 12.
Phoenix Coyotes defenseman Nick Boynton has been suspended automatically for one game, while head coach Wayne Gretzky has been fined $10,000. Boynton was assessed an instigator penalty at 15:50 of the third period.
