Junior right wing Reid Boucher signs entry-level contract with Devils

NEWARK, N.J. - The New Jersey Devils have signed Ontario Hockey League-leading goal scorer Reid Boucher to an entry-level contract.

President and general manager Lou Lamoriello announced the deal for the 2011 fourth-round draft pick Wednesday without giving details.

The 19-year-old Lansing, Mich. native has scored 62 goals for Sarnia, breaking the club record of 58 set by Tampa Bay's Steven Stamkos, who currently leads the NHL in goals. His goal total is 14 higher than the next closest player this season.

Boucher also leads the league in power play goals (21) and is fifth with 94 points. He has 90 goals in 132 games with Sarnia over the past two seasons. He will remain with Sarnia, which has three games left in the regular season before heading to the post-season.
