Boulton cleared waivers Sunday and will report to AHL Bridgeport, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports. As expected the veteran cleared waivers, and will serve in a mentorship role for the up-and-coming prospects in the Islanders' system.
Boulton was placed on waivers Saturday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports. Assuming Boulton clears waivers he will likely report to Bridgeport of the AHL where he will mentor future Islanders in a player/coach role.
Boulton was placed on injured reserve with a lower-body injury Tuesday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports. Boulton's name has become synonymous with injuries, as various maladies have contributed to his averaging roughly 44 games over 15 years in the league. He's likely to toil on the waiver wire in most fantasy leagues this year.
Boutlon (upper body) has been activated from injured reserve and will draw in to Sunday's lineup. Boulton has seen NHL action in just one game this season, playing just 8:28 during that contest. Considering he has very limited NHL action in his career, and has never averaged more than 9:00 of ice time, it's safe to avoid him for fantasy purposes.
Boulton (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Friday. There's no indication as to the nature of Boulton's injury, as he has only played one game this season, and that was on Dec. 12. The move was made retroactive to Jan. 2, meaning that Boulton can be activated as soon as Saturday, but it's unclear as to when Boulton may be able to return.
