On December 4, 2013, Boucher was promoted to the Devils for the first time, following an injury to Ryan Carter.

Boucher scored his first NHL goal on December 18, 2013 against Robin Lehner of the Ottawa Senators in a 5–2 win.

In the 2016–17 season, having made the Devils opening season roster, Boucher was unable to make an impact in a depth role, appearing in just 9 games over the opening months of the season with the Devils.

On December 3, 2016, Boucher's 6-year tenure with the Devils ended as he was claimed off waivers by the Nashville Predators. He made his debut with Nashville the following day against the Philadelphia Flyers before he was sent on an conditioning assigned to affiliate, the Milwaukee Admirals on December 12, 2016.

Vancouver Canucks (2017-present)

On January 1, 2017, Boucher was placed on waivers by the Predators. The following day, on January 2, 2017, he was reclaimed by the Devils, but was again waived on January 3. On January 4, 2017, Boucher was claimed by the Vancouver Canucks. Boucher was scratched in all but one of the Canucks' games in January before drawing into the roster. He scored his first goal with Vancouver on February 28 against the Detroit Red Wings, scoring a late game-tying goal before the Canucks lost 3–2 in overtime. On March 25, he recorded his first multi-goal game; scoring twice in a 4–2 victory over the Minnesota Wild.

On July 24, 2017, the Canucks re-signed Boucher to a one-year, one-way contract worth $687,500, avoiding arbitration.
