    Penguins' Derrick Pouliot: Notches helper in second game of season

    Pouliot picked up an assist on Phil Kessel's goal Tuesday in a 2-0 win over New Jersey -- his first point of the year. It was just his second NHL game of the season, but the Penguins' 2012 first-round pick (eighth overall) has been scoring consistently in the AHL, where he's racked up six goals and 23 points in 37 games. It's worth noting that Pouliot saw minimal ice time in this one, skating a meager 11:34 with no action on special teams in his third-pairing role.

    Penguins' Derrick Pouliot: Earns first NHL point of season

    Pouliot picked up an assist -- his first NHL point of the season -- in a 2-0 win Tuesday. He chipped in with a secondary assist on Phil Kessel's goal. Pouliot played markedly better than he did in his debut Friday, skating primarily with Ben Lovejoy at even strength. He compiled on 11:34 TOI but the effort might help the young defender in the confidence department. Pouliot scored six goals and 23 points in 37 AHL contests before his promotion to Pittsburgh.

    Penguins' Derrick Pouliot: Recalled from minors

    Pouliot has been recalled from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. Pouliot gets the call with Kris Letang (wrist) and David Warsofsky (undisclosed) dealing with their respective injuries. He hasn't played in the NHL since 2014-15, when he logged seven points and a minus-11 rating with the Pens.

    Penguins' Derrick Pouliot: Improving in AHL

    Pouliot has scored five goals and 17 points in 26 AHL games for the Baby Penguins, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Pens associate GM Jason Botterill feels Pouliot is making progress. "There's still a level of consistency he needs to bring to his game, but he has the ability, the vision and the offensive skill to make plays that a lot of other players in our organization can't make," Botterill noted. Ideally, when the Penguins recall Pouliot sometime in the next month he will stick with the NHL team for good -- at least that's what the organization is shooting for.

    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.
  • Pens' Reassign Pouliot (Upper Body) To AHL

    News: Derrick Pouliot (upper body) was reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre Scranton on Sunday.
    Analysis: Derrick Pouliot missed the end of the Penguins' season due to an upper-body injury, but will get some added work in the AHL as the minor league club continues its playoff run. He should rejoin the Penguins for the start of the 2015-16 season, however.
  • Pens' Pouliot Out For Game 5

    News: Derrick Pouliot (upper body) will not play in Friday's Game 5 against the Rangers,'s Dan Rosen reports.
    Analysis: The Penguins won't make any changes to their lineup as they face elimination, meaning Beau Bennett (upper body) and Christian Ehrhoff (upper body) also won't play. Should Pittsburgh force a Game 6 on Sunday, Derrick Pouliot might be able to return, as he was spotted skating Friday morning.
