Thrashers re-sign Boulton
The Atlanta Thrashers have re-signed forward Eric Boulton, according to General Manager Rick Dudley. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
 
"Eric is a well-respected teammate and a high-energy player who adds a physical presence to our lineup," said Dudley. "He is an important part of our hockey club and we are pleased to bring him back for the upcoming season."
 
Boulton, 33, recorded eight points (two goals, six assists) and a team-leading 113 penalty minutes in 62 games last year with Atlanta. He became the franchise’s all-time leader in penalty minutes (552) on March 20 vs. Philadelphia. Boulton scored his first career power play goal on Jan. 12 vs. Ottawa.
 
The 6-1, 225-pound left wing has appeared in 480 regular-season NHL games with Atlanta and Buffalo, registering 63 points (21 goals, 42 assists) with 1,063 penalty minutes. He played in four Stanley Cup Playoff games with the Thrashers during the 2006-07 campaign.
