New Jersey Devils

On March 13, 2013, the New Jersey Devils signed Boucher to a three-year entry-level contract. Reid scored one goal and had two assists in his first game with Albany in the 2012–13 season debut on March 30, 2013.

On December 4, 2013, Boucher was promoted to the Devils for the first time, following an injury to Ryan Carter. He got an assist and was plus 2 in his debut and became the first Devil to score in a shootout that season. 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 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.
