The team announced inking the 26-year- old to a one-year deal for the 2020-21 season.

Boucher leaves utica after spending three years with the comets - following his signing with parent club vancouver canucks in free agency.

The michigan native lead the comets in scoring - was named an a-h-l all-star and team m-v-p in each of those three seasons.

He departs as the team's single- season record holder in goals and points - and is the franchise's all-time leader in career goals with 90.

Boucher also is tied for the franchise's all-time points record with 175 - aling with alexandre grenier.

He would have almost surely broken that had the season not been cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic.

This is a big loss for the comets - how big?

We'll here's what broadcaster joe roberts had to say about him after having a front row seat to each game over the last couple of years.

Joe roberts: i would say that without it being hyperbole, i think he is the best player to be a utica comet...guys would go into battle with him 100 times out of 100...so i think that speaks volumes about him as a person.

In 323 career regular season a-h- l games between the comets - milwaukee admirals and former albany devils...boucher has 153 goals and 285 points.

In 133 n-h-l games with the canucks - new jersey devils - and nashville predators...he has 20 goals and 42 points.

The 2020-21 k-h-l season is slated to begin tentatively on september second.
