New Jersey Devils center Brian Boyle has been diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia, a form of bone marrow cancer that is treatable with medication.

Boyle plans on returning to the ice soon as possible, and several NHL players, including former teammates, subsequently made it known to the 32-year-old will be heavily supported through it all.

The Hockey Feed crew is also sending Boyle their thoughts and prayers.
