From our friend Kevin Kurz at CSN Bay Area:

Sharks defenseman Dan Boyle will rejoin the team Wednesday night in Boston, according to a team source.

Boyle is expected to be on the ice at TD Garden Thursday morning for the team’s morning skate. It will be the first time Boyle steps on the ice since being hit from behind and into the boards by the Blues’ Maxim Lapierre on October 16 in St. Louis.

Note this doesn’t mean Boyle, currently on injured reserve, is going to play against the Bruins. The 37-year-old could possibly be back in action Oct. 30 (next Wednesday) in Los Angeles, according to an estimate by Sharks beat writer David Pollak of the Mercury News.

After the Bruins game, the Sharks play Saturday in Montreal and Sunday in Ottawa.

    Happy to see this injury isn’t as bad as it looked initially. Sharks shipping up to Boston, hopefully they can keep a rollin. Be nice to see Mike Brown in action for the teal for the first time and also Sharks rookie Matt Nieto played at Boston College so it’s kinda a homecoming game for that guy should be a classic game with plenty of excitement.

    Oh and I almost forgot that newly activated Sharks Forward Freddie Hamilton is up to faceoff against his younger brother Dougie Hamilton, the Bruins defenseman, lol is it Thursday night yet?!
