    Just saw this post from yesterday. Can't find anything about it on line. Is this true? If so, it's horrible. I'm hoping it's not true.

      Terrible news. Boyle has always enjoyed a "class act" reputation. Suspect that Boyle and the Devils are trying to keep this under wraps until more is known about treatment and how his career will be impacted. Nothing about this on NHL.com or from Devils' beat reporters.

      EDIT: Devils now tweeting about the diagnosis: chronic myeloid leukemia.

        #NJDevils re Brian Boyle. From team Dr. Michael Farber: Boyle diagnosed with CML. A type of cancer of the bone marrow. Largely treatable.

        Dr. Farber says it was caught early on. Treatable with medication.

        Just plain horrible. All the best to him and his family.
        ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

          When you see these things happen to athletes who are in great shape etc just a reminder how cancer is cruel and doesn't discriminate

            I know it's a different type of cancer, but let's hope he is as successful as Mario was with his.
