On March 31, 2015, the Washington Capitals signed Boyd to a two-year, entry-level contract, beginning in the 2015–16 season.[2] Boyd signed a tryout agreement for the Capitals' AHL affiliate, the Hershey Bears for the remainder of the 2014–15 season.[3] He played two games for the Bears, registering a goal and an assist. Boyd re-signed with the Capitals on July 5, 2017.[4] He made his NHL debut on December 4, 2017, due to injuries to the Capitals regular line up.[5] He recorded his first career NHL point against the Philadelphia Flyers on March 18, 2018.[6] He won the Stanley Cup with the Capitals on June 7, 2018. On July 1, the Capitals re-signed Boyd to a two-year contract with an average annual value of $800,000.[7]

Despite suffering an injury in the preseason,[8] Boyd began the 2018–19 season in the NHL. Boyd scored his first NHL goal on December 9 in a 4–0 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets on a pass from team captain Alex Ovechkin.[9]
