Eric Boulton's new contract comes with a $575,000 base salary.

Boulton will make an additional $25,000 if the Islanders reach the playoffs and earn an extra $25,000 for each playoff round win after that. He's a good source of penalty minutes when he plays, but he isn't expected to play enough to make him worth holding onto in standard leagues.

Eric Boulton is sticking with the Islanders for now even though he doesn't have a contract.

Boulton attended the Islanders' training camp on a tryout basis. While he isn't part of the Islanders' opening game roster, the fact that he's still with the team suggests that the Islanders might still be considering re-signing him. Boulton, 39, had two goals in 10 games last season.
