According to Boivin, after getting drafted 14th overall at the 1988 draft, he signed a 4-year one-way contract with the Philadelphia Flyers and got a $150,000 signing bonus. It is assumed that he got that bonus in 1988-89. Unclear if the 4-year one-way contract took effect in 1988-89 before he played two more seasons in junior or in 1990-91 when he started his AHL/NHL career.
