Fantasy Summary

Big bodied, rangy and efficient, Boyko fits the mold of a modern day netminder. While still a work in progress, the Rangers obviously were intrigued by his tantalizing combination of size, athleticism and seemingly limitless potential. The Alberta native has just begun his first full season with the Kelowna Rockets, after starting the season last year with the Tri City Americans, the team with which he patrolled the crease for parts of four seasons. Now 20 years old, Boyko will utilize the next season or two honing his craft before hoping to figure into New York’s plans as an option for a role with the AHL Wolfpack.

June 2023 – Boyko appeared in 40 games for the Kelowna Rockets of the WHL in 2022-23, posting a 13-24-1 record, a 3.55 GAA, and a .898 save percentage. In 2021-22, the Alberta native appeared in eight games with the Tri City Americans, before moving on to Kelowna and appearing in 46 games for the Rockets, posting a 28-12-4 record, a 2.79 GAA and a .913 save percentage. Boyko signed an ELC with New York in 2022 and is under contract through 2024-25.  The towering netminder, listed at 6-7 and 208 pounds, looks to continue to hone his game and steer his statistics back in a positive direction after a big dip a season ago.

November 2022 – Boyko recently signed a three year ELC with the Rangers. The Kelowna Rockets goaltender has appeared in seven WHL games this season, posting a 3.84 GAA with a .892 save percentage, after participating in NYR training camp in September. He played in 54 games last season, split between the WHL’s Rockets and the Tri City Americans. Brendan Ferry
