Oilers Claim Jesse Boulerice, Place Steve MacIntyre on IR

General Manager Steve Tambellini announced today that the Edmonton Oilers have claimed forward Jesse Boulerice off waivers from the Colorado Avalanche and have placed left winger Steve MacIntyre on the NHL Injured Reserve List.

Boulerice, a 6’2”, 215 pound native from Plattsburgh, New York has scored 2-2-4 with 46 penalty minutes in 12 games this season with Colorado’s American Hockey League affiliate, the Lake Erie Monsters.

The 30-year-old right winger is in his 11th pro season after three seasons of junior hockey with the Detroit/Plymouth Whalers of the Ontario Hockey League. Drafted by the Philadelphia Flyers in the fifth round of the 1996 NHL Entry Draft, Boulerice made his pro debut with the AHL’s Philadelphia Phantoms in 1998-99 and made his NHL debut with the Flyers in 2001-02.

Boulerice has played 170 NHL games with Philadelphia, Carolina and St. Louis, scoring 8-2-10 with 333 penalty minutes. He spent his first full season in the NHL with Carolina in 2002-03 and played a career-high 76 games with the Hurricanes in 2003-04, establishing career-highs with six goals, seven points and 127 penalty minutes.

Boulerice split the 2007-08 season between Philadelphia and the Flyers’ AHL affiliate. He was scoreless with 29 penalty minutes in five games with the Flyers and registered 2-4-6 with 101 penalty minutes in 36 games with the Philadelphia Phantoms.

MacIntyre missed the last two games of the Oilers seven-game road trip due to an upper body injury.

umm...seward has been right on just about everything he's posted regarding player movement, so I'd believe him.

And if I have this right, Boulerice was signed to a PTO by Lake Erie, so in order for the Avs to use his services he'd have to be signed to a NHL deal. The Avs didn't need him right away though, so they waived him assuming he'd pass with no problem considering he had no interest almost all summer, but Edmonton, who just lost big Mac for a while, needed a real enforcer so they scooped Jesse up.

Good for Edmonton giving these enforcer`s opportunities to earn NHL $.

Its really a smart move by Edmonton. When Mac is ready to come back and scrap, they will send Boulerice down and could care less if they lose him on waivers.

They're getting for the Leafs on Thursday

I swear I saw on TSN yesterday that the Avs had put Boulerice on waivers but they removed it and it didn't make any sense so I figured it was just a mistake.

I learned this a couple weeks back. He nailed the Pens line-up and didn't have a single link. Trust me seward is gold.

How long before Boulerice does something stupid and gets suspended? I'm going with 2 games.

Let's hope he slashes and crosschecks himself through the Leafs lineup and hurts some players. So maybe the Leafs will wake up and recongnize that this is the season where they should simply put fighters on the ice to at least make the fans happy. They'll finish last anyways.

With Mac out, at least the Oilers addressed the need for someone to act as a replacement. Not a bad move.
