Selected by the New York Rangers in the ninth round (No. 234) of the 1994 NHL Draft, Boulton has played in 638 NHL games with the Buffalo Sabres, Atlanta Thrashers, New Jersey Devils and the Islanders. He has 77 points (29 goals, 48 assists) and 1,389 penalty minutes.

Quote of the Day

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
