The New York Islanders have signed veteran forward Eric Boulton to a one-year contract, the team announced on Tuesday.
During the offseason, Boulton took a tryout with the Isles, but nothing materialized in terms of a contract until the team was three games deep in the season.

The 39-year-old forward presumably gets a deal to bring some muscle to the Islanders roster depth, with him weighing in at 224 pounds. He’s played 648 career NHL games, amassing 1,419 penalty minutes in the process.
