The New York Islanders officially signed forward Eric Boulton on Monday, giving him a one-year contract for a reported $550,000.

The 35-year-old Boulton played 51 games last year for the Devils and had 115 penalty minutes and nine fighting majors. He did not record a point.

In 600 career games, Boulton has 73 points and 1,265 penalty minutes.

Boulton signed a two-year contract with the Devils last summer, but the team bought out the final year of the deal.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
