Eric Boulton's recently inked two-way contract with the Islanders comes with a $575,000 should he play in the NHL.

Boulton would earn $150,000 annually when he's playing in the minors, but he's been guaranteed a minimum salary of $200,000 even if he spends the full season in the AHL. The 39-year-old might make the Islanders' opening game roster, but he would probably spend a lot of time in the press box if that does happen.

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.

He dressed in 10 games with New York during the 2014-15 season. Boulton had two goals and 30 penalty minutes during that time. If Boulton lands an NHL roster spot he can rack up PIMs, but there are better options available who will play far more regularly.
