      Penguins' Derrick Pouliot: Back in action

      Pouliot scored one goal and assisted on another Friday in his first action since being cited for public drunkenness. It doesn't look like his brush with the law has hindered his game. Pouliot now has two goals, six assists and a plus-6 rating in nine AHL games. While he's expected to spend most of 2015-16 with the Baby Pens, it wouldn't be at all surprising to see Pittsburgh recall him if his game matures on and off the ice.

      Penguins' Derrick Pouliot: Fortunate legal issue is his first

      Pouliot, who will be disciplined internally for his public drunkenness citation, won't face a longer timetable to the NHL according to GM Jim Rutherford, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. "This is an unfortunate, serious situation that needs to be dealt with internally, but it doesn't affect how we view him," Rutherford said. "Certainly if there's a recurrence or a behavioral pattern, that's a different story. This is the first time he's had any issues." Pouliot missed Wednesday's tilt with what was originally reported as an undisclosed "bruise" before the legal run-in was made public. It remains to be seen how many more games -- if any -- the highly touted defensive prospect sits out.

      Penguins' Derrick Pouliot: Cited for public drunkenness

      Pouliot was cited for public drunkenness Sunday and didn't play Wednesday against the St. John's Ice Caps, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. The highest-rated prospect in Pittsburgh's organization, Pouliot failed to make the team out of training camp and was sent to the AHL. Pouliot scored one goal and six points in eight games for the Baby Pens prior to his brush with the law. He was expected to skate in Wilkes-Barre for the foreseeable future, but the drinking issue won't help get him to Pittsburgh any sooner. It remains to be seen whether the 21-year-old will be disciplined by the organization.

    • Sent to AHL on Saturday

      News: Pittsburgh re-assigned Derrick Pouliot to AHL Wilkes-Barre on Saturday, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
      Analysis: The highly-touted offensive defenseman played too tentatively in the preseason and will work on his game in the AHL. "He's real close to being here and helping the team," GM Jim Rutherford said. "Right now, to get him to play some games and get his confidence up with handling the puck, he should return here at some point." The Pens are likely hoping the demotion will serve as a wake-up call to Derrick Pouliot, who has all of the talent in the world but not as much intensity.
