Boulton Signs PTO With Islanders

News: Eric Boulton signed a professional tryout contract with the Islanders on Monday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: The 39-year-old winger was only used in 10 games with the Islanders last season, as he routinely found himself in the press box as an extra forward. Unless the team experiences a litany of injuries during training camp, it's difficult to envision Eric Boulton cracking the roster.

Isles' Boulton Surprises With Rare Goal

News: Eric Boulton scored his first goal of the season Thursday in a 4-3 shootout loss to the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: Well, that's now two consecutive seasons with a goal for Eric Boulton, who potted two goals last year after going without one in 2011-12 and 2012-13. This was also just his sixth game for the Islanders all season long; clearly he was grateful for getting back in the lineup.

Boulton Will Play Thursday For Islanders

News: Eric Boulton will be in the lineup Thursday against the Blue Jackets, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.
Analysis: Coach Jack Capuano must feel that the Isles need to add some toughness to the lineup. Eric Boulton is among the team's better fighters, but that attribute alone is not enough to guarantee him a regular lineup spot.

Isles Activate Boulton

News: Eric Boulton (lower body) was activated from injured reserve Thursday.
Analysis: As was expected following the Isles' morning skate, Eric Boulton will be cleared to play Thursday against the Predators. It will be just his fifth appearance of the season, and his first since Jan. 17.

Isles' Boulton To Return Thursday

News: Eric Boulton (lower body) is on track to play Thursday against the Predators, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: After completing the Isles' morning skate with no complications, Eric Boulton is set to join the lineup for the first time since Jan. 17. He's still being listed on injured reserve for the moment, but expect the team to rectify that at some point in the afternoon. Boulton, who has appeared in just four games this season while serving primarily as a healthy scratch, is expected to replace the suspended Matt Martin on the Isles' fourth line.

Isles' Boulton Placed On IR

News: Eric Boulton (lower body) has been placed on injured reserve retroactive to Jan. 17, Newsday's Arthur Staple reports.
Analysis: A healthy scratch for the past couple of months, Eric Boulton presumably suffered an injury during practice. His absence doesn't change much for the Islanders.

Islanders Activate Boulton From Injured Reserve

News: The Islanders activated Eric Boulton (lower body) from injured reserve Thursday.
Analysis: Eric Boulton is set to return to action after missing the last 14 games. It's uncertain if he will play Thursday against the Blues, and what his role will be moving forward.

Isles' Boulton Joining Team On Road Trip

News: Eric Boulton (lower body) will rejoin the Islanders for their two-game road trip beginning Tuesday in Minnesota, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
Analysis: The fact that Eric Boulton is with the team and presumably back skating suggests he could be ready to go for the second game of the trip Thursday in St. Louis. The Islanders have preemptively cleared a 23-man roster spot for him by placing Casey Cizikas (upper body) on injured reserve Tuesday.

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.

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.
