Up until now Boulton had remained unsigned, but he is taking a route that many veterans take to show they have a little left in the tank by accepting a try out, according to Newsday.
If he fails to make the roster he could use his many career experiences to help mentor as well as protect the kids in Bridgeport. If you are not familiar with the AHL game, it is a much more physical brand of hockey compared to what we see in the NHL. While his game may not translate up here like it used to, it is still a very much needed part of the game in the AHL.Eric Boulton agrees to tryout with #Isles. Between him and Matt Carkner, BPT could be an interesting place this season.— Arthur Staple (@StapeNewsday) August 24, 2015
