Johnny Boychuk clearly left an impact on some of his former teammates.
The New York Islanders defenseman retired Wednesday due to an eye injury he sustained during the 2019-20 NHL season.
Before his career in New York, Boychuk spent six seasons with the Boston Bruins, winning a Stanley Cup in 2011.
A few of his former teammates — Torey Krug, Milan Lucic and Andrew Ference — took to social media to congratulate Boychuk and share some memories.
