Boulerice faced Buffalo after being called up Sunday from Philadelphia's AHL affiliate, the Philadelphia Phantoms. He had two goals and three assists and 65 penalty minutes in 30 games with the Phantoms.
Boulerice's suspension matched the longest in NHL history after he cross-checked Canucks forward Ryan Kesler during Philadelphia's 8-2 win at Vancouver on Oct. 10.
The Flyers, in an 0-8-2 slump, are banged-up after Mike Richards, the team's leading scorer this season, tore his left hamstring in a 2-1 overtime loss to Florida on Saturday. Philadelphia was also minus star forward Simon Gagne (concussion), forward Joffrey Lupul (sprained ankle) and defenseman Derian Hatcher (knee).
Forward Steve Downie also returned Monday after missing four games with a concussion.
