Today, we shine the spotlight on Florida Eels Junior Hockey Alumni, Daniel Boyd. Hailing from the picturesque Pine Island in Florida.
From an early age, Daniel was drawn to the ice like a magnet. At the tender age of five, he laced up his skates for the first time at the renowned Fort Myers Skatium, where his love for the game blossomed. Little did he know that this humble beginning would pave the way for an extraordinary career in the sport he adored.
As Daniel continued to hone his skills, he found a home in the esteemed Florida Eels Youth Organization. With dedication, hard work, and unwavering determination, he left a lasting impression on the ice. From the very start, it was clear that Daniel possessed the talent and drive to make his mark in the world of hockey.

Each time he hit the ice, he brought an unparalleled intensity, inspiring his teammates and captivating fans with his sheer determination.
Daniel’s passion for hockey was matched only by his dedication to his education. After completing his junior hockey journey, he pursued his studies at Becker College. However, his pursuit of knowledge led him back to his roots, earning his bachelor’s degree in Integrated Studies from the esteemed Florida Gulf Coast University. His commitment to academic excellence is truly commendable.
While Daniel’s prowess on the ice is undeniable, it is his selflessness and compassion off the ice that truly sets him apart.
