Islanders deal with Boulton is official

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.

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.
