Eric Boulton agrees to terms on one-year deal:

The New York Islanders announced today that forward Eric Boulton has agreed to terms on a one-year contract.

Boulton, 36, appeared in 23 games with the Islanders this season, recording four points (two goals, two assists) and 88 penalty minutes. The Halifax, NS, native’s second season with the Islanders was cut short by a wrist injury suffered Mar. 4 in Winnepeg.

In 638 career NHL games with the Buffalo Sabres, Atlanta Thrashers, New Jersey Devils and the Islanders, Boulton has 77 points (29 goals, 48 assists) and 1,389 penalty minutes. He’s also appeared in four career Stanley Cup Playoff games, all with the Thrashers.

The New York Rangers selected Boulton in the ninth round, 234th overall, of the 1994 National Hockey League Entry Draft. Boulton, a 6’0, 225-pound forward, has appeared in 133 career American Hockey League games and 171 ECHL games. He made his professional debut in the 1996-97 season after completing a three-year junior career in the Ontario Hockey League, split between the Oshawa Generals and the Sarnia Sting.

Always happy when players like Boulton get re-signed. These are the guys that "need" that NHL paycheque more then anyone. As long as he has invested his money well, then he has made a great career living out his dream.
