Isles Place Boulton On IR

News: Eric Boulton (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, according to the NHL's official media site.
Analysis: Eric Boulton took part in Thursday's practice, but it sounds like the Islanders will use his injury as a means of activating Josh Bailey (hand) in time for Friday's game against the Panthers. The 38-year-old has typically been a healthy scratch this season, giving him little utility in the fantasy realm.

Isles' Boulton Out Tuesday

News: Eric Boulton (undisclosed) will not play Tuesday against the Avalanche, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: After previous serving as a healthy scratch in each of the Isles' first 11 games, Eric Boulton replaced Cory Conacher on the fourth line for the past three contests. However, he'll have to head back to the press box Tuesday, following his early exit from Monday's practice after tweaking something. Conacher will reenter the lineup in his stead.

Isles' Boulton Leaves Practice Early

News: Eric Boulton had to leave practice early Monday after "tweaking" something, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Eric Boulton has been getting in the lineup lately as coach Jack Capuano has been sitting some of his under performing regulars but looks likely to sit Tuesday.

Isles To Play Boulton On Wednesday

News: Eric Boulton will enter the lineup Wednesday against the Ducks.
Analysis: Eric Boulton, who has been a healthy scratch for the Isles' first 11 games of the season, will replace Casey Cizikas in the lineup. The veteran fourth-liner provided some useful penalty-minute production when he played last season, but because he often spends most of his time in the press box, it will be hard for him to provide much value with any consistency.

Isles Sign Boulton To Extension

News: Eric Boulton signed a one-year contract extension with the Islanders on Sunday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Eric Boulton is 37 years old and is likely nearing the end of is career. But, the Islanders must feel they can get another good year out of the forward, who has been out since Mar. 5 with a broken hand.

Isles' Boulton Appears To Have Broken Hand

News: Eric Boulton appears to have broke his hand during a fight with the Jets' Mark Stuart on Tuesday, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: This is what banging your knuckles against a helmet will do for you. With only six weeks left in the season, Eric Boulton may have played his last game this year.

Isles' Boulton Exits With Hand Injury

News: Eric Boulton left Tuesday's game with a hand injury, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: He injured it while throwing a punch at the Jets' Mark Stuart. It's possible the Islanders are just exercising some precaution in keeping Eric Boulton out of the rest of the game, but he'll likely get an X-ray afterwards regardless to determine if he fractured any of his digits.

Eric Boulton, LW, NYI No Points Since December For Isles' Boulton

No Points Since December For Isles' Boulton

News: Eric Boulton hasn't recorded a point since scoring a goal in a Dec. 12 game against the Coyotes.
Analysis: A lack of playing time is the root of the problem for Eric Boulton, who has appeared in just 11 contests since registering the goal against the Coyotes. He's instead attained most of his fantasy value in the penalty box, racking up 40 PIM during that time. Still, he's a nightly threat to serve as a healthy scratch, making him hard to depend on even for penalty minutes.

Isles Re-Sign Boulton

News: Eric Boulton signed a one-year contract with the Islanders, according to the Islanders web site.
Analysis: Eric Boulton is on the team for one reason, and one reason only, and that is to add some toughness to an otherwise soft lineup.

Isles Take Chance On Boulton

News: Eric Boulton has landed with the Islanders, signing a one-year deal after being bought out by the Devils, reports TSN.ca.
Analysis: He failed to register a point in 51 games with Jersey last season, but he did deliver 115 PIMs. He's never scored more than 13 points in any season, and at soon-to-be 36 he's on a serious decline. He may not factor in fantasy at all this season.

New Jersey To Buy Out Boulton

News: New Jersey placed Eric Boulton on unconditional waivers Saturday in order to buy out the remaining year of his two-year contract, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.
Analysis: The enforcer made 51 appearances for the Devils last year, failing to total a single point and skating to a minus-12 rating.

Devils' Boulton Inactive For Game 2

News: Eric Boulton will sit out Game 2 Friday against the Panthers, the Bergen County Record reports.
Analysis: Eric Boulton failed to score a point in 51 games played, severely limiting his fantasy value. The fact that Boulton went unclaimed after the Devils put him on waivers earlier in the year demonstrates that he isn't exactly a game-changer.

Devils Place Boulton On Waivers

News: Eric Boulton was placed on waivers Saturday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.
Analysis: Eric Boulton is strictly a fighter for the Devils, as he has yet to post a point in 36 games this year.

Boulton Back In Lineup For Devils

News: Eric Boulton will play Wednesday against Buffalo, the Bergen Record's Tom Gulitti reports.
Analysis: Eric Boulton had been a scratch the last two games and missed considerable time earlier this season with a broken hand. He has no points in 15 games with 29 penalty minutes. Don't be surprised if he drops the gloves Wednesday night.

Devils' Boulton To Return

News: Eric Boulton (hand) will be back in lineup Wednesday for the first time since Oct. 21, according to Tom Gulitti of The Bergen Record.
Analysis: The fact that Eric Boulton uses his hands as a pugilist may have kept him off the ice longer than other players with a similar injury. But when you know he's out there, he's a good source of penalty minutes, with 19 in four games this season and 87 in 69 games last season.

Devils Recall Boulton

News: The Devils have recalled Eric Boulton from Albany (AHL), Katie Strang of ESPN reports.
Analysis: Eric Boulton still remains on IR, but the Devils should have him back soon from his hand injury.

Devils Send Boulton On Conditioning Assignment

News: The Devils have sent Eric Boulton to the AHL for a conditioning assignment, Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record reports.
Analysis: Eric Boulton hasn't played at all in November and could use some ice action before returning to the ice for the Devils. He hasn't had much of an offensive impact for the Devils in his four NHL games this year, as Boulton has no points and only one shot while averaging 6:31 of ice time.

Devils' Boulton Sits Out Thursday Skate

News: Eric Boulton (hand) did not take part in Thursday's morning skate, the Bergen Record reports.

Devils' Boulton Playing Through Broken Hand

News: Eric Boulton has been diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture in his right hand, ESPN.com's Katie Strang reports.
Analysis: Eric Boulton has been able to practice through the injury, but he has not appeared in a game since Oct. 21. Boulton's hand is apparently making progress, so it looks like he should be able to avoid a stint on injured reserve.

Devils' Boulton Still Resting

News: Eric Boulton (hand) was not on the ice for practice Monday, Katie Strang of ESPN New York reports.
Analysis: The Devils haven't provided much info about his expected return, but it sounds like there's a good chance he'll miss time during the upcoming week when the Devils have three games on the slate.
