Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Mike Boland
Winger Mike Boland was enrolled at the University of Toronto and was at the school for four years but only suited up for 21 games during his time there.

In 1970-71 he turned pro with the AHL's Springfield Kings where he played for two years. The arrival of the WHA in 1972-73 gave new opportunity to many minor league players and Mike Boland was amongst them. He was selected by the Ottawa Nationals in the 1972 General Player Draft. He played with Ottawa for a season and was then signed to a free-agent contract by the NHL's Philadelphia Flyers in September, 1973. He was dispatched to the Richmond Robins for an entire season. He played just two games with the Flyers in 1974-75, which was the extent of his NHL experience.

Boland remained in Philadelphia and skated for the Firebirds of the NAHL before being sent to Cape Cod midway through the 1975-76 season. By this time Boland had enough of bouncing around in the minors and decided to spend a year playing for Helsinki in the Finnish League. In 1978-79 he played three more games with the Philadelphia Firebirds before saying goodbye to competitive hockey.
