Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Zac Boyer
Zac Boyer was selected in the fourth round, 88th overall by the Chicago Blackhawks in the 1991 NHL Entry Draft. Boyer played four years of major junior hockey in the WHL with the Kamloops Blazers. During his draft year, Boyer put together a 45-goal season and 105 points.

After failing to earn a spot with the Blackhawks, Boyer opted to return to junior as an overage player in 1991-92. In 70 games with the Blazers he scored 40 goals and 109 points. The return to junior was well worth it as Boyer helped lead the Blazers to a Memorial Cup championship, defeating the OHL's Sault Ste Marie Greyhounds in the final 5-4. That victory was a redemption of sorts for Boyer and the Blazers, who came up a little short at the 1990 Memorial Cup in Hamilton, eventually won by Eric Lindros and the Oshawa Generals of the OHL.

In 1992-93, Boyer played with the IHL's Indianapolis Ice, scoring seven goals and 21 points in 59 games. He played there for another year before moving on to the Kalamazoo Wings. In 1994-95, Boyer got his first crack at the NHL, playing one game with the Dallas Stars. However, he was primarily relegated to the role of spectator on the bench and was used sparingly. In 1995-96 he saw two more games of action with the Stars, bu6t again was unable to find the scoresheet.

Boyer continues to play professional hockey and has played in Germany and Austria. He is currently a member of the Colorado Golden Kings of the WCHL. In 2000-01, he had the best offensive production as a pro, scoring 37 goals and 90 points for the Kings.

Boyer is involved in the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation, created in 1970 by parents whose children have been afflicted by the horrendous disease.
