Eric Boulton was surprised when the Devils informed him that he would be placed on waivers.

"I feel like I'm a big part of this team on the ice and in the locker room," Boulton said. "I think all the players know that and I think I definitely contribute." Teams have until noon on Monday to claim him. Devils GM Lou Lamoriello said that he wanted to preserve the option of sending him to the AHL, if he's not getting sufficient ice time.
