by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

As expected, the veteran cleared waivers, and will serve in a mentorship role for the up-and-coming prospects in the Islanders' system.

Islanders' Eric Boulton: Placed on waivers

Islanders' Eric Boulton: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Islanders' Eric Boulton: Pens one-year deal Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boulton inked a one-year, two-way deal with the Islanders on Friday.

Boulton, who turns 40 before the start of the season, has spent the past four years with the Isles, but has never logged more than 25 games for New York. In fact, over that span, the veteran has tallied a mere six points in 54 outings. In terms of fantasy, the winger is irrelevant, yet clearly adds something to the locker room as the team continues to keep him around.

Islanders' Eric Boulton: Activated from IR, playing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Islanders' Eric Boulton: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Islanders' Eric Boulton: Activated off IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boulton (lower body) was activated off injured reserve Friday.

Even though Boulton is now healthy, it isn't likely that he draws into the lineup immediately. If he does, Boulton will play limited minutes on the Isles' fourth line for the purpose of adding toughness, not offensive production. In the last four seasons, the 39-year old winger has scored six points.

Islanders' Eric Boulton: Will not play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boulton (lower body) will be out for Tuesday night's contest against the Sharks, Kevin Kurz of CSNBayArea.com reports.

The 39-year-old veteran Boulton will continue to work his way back from an injury sustained Oct. 17. He likely would not be much of a factor anyway, as he has appeared in just 48 games over the last three seasons with the Islanders. His next chance to return will be Thursday when New York will play at Los Angeles.

Islanders' Eric Boulton: Lands on IR with lower-body injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boulton is on injured reserve with a lower-body injury, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.

It's unclear how Boulton sustained the injury, but not all news is bad for the Islanders as the team has activated defenseman Thomas Hickey (upper body) from IR in a corresponding move.

Islanders' Eric Boulton: Agrees to one-year deal with Isles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boulton has agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Islanders,

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. Boulton only made his way into 10 games last season for the Isles, scoring two goals and adding 30 PIMs in that span. He's a part-time depth player at this juncture.

Will continue to practice with Islanders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boulton will sign a waiver that will allow him to continue to practice with the Islanders, reports Newsday's Arthur Staple.It's unclear if the Isles are just doing Boulton a favor and allowing him to stay in shape while he decides his future or if the team wants him to stick around as they might be able to use him.

Boulton will be in the lineup Thursday for the Islanders, according to Newsday's Arthur Staple.Coach Jack Capuano must feel that the Isles need to add some toughness to the lineup versus the Blue Jackets as Boulton only serves one purpose, and that is in the fisticuffs department.

Boulton (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Thursday, according to the NHL's official media site.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.

Boulton (undisclosed) will not play Tuesday against the Avalanche, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.After previous serving as a healthy scratch in each of the Isles' first 11 games, 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.
