    Oilers' Benoit Pouliot: Nets his 12th goal in loss

    Pouliot scored the Oilers lone goal as they were lambasted by Montreal 5-1 on Saturday. Pouliot could be a sneaky pickup in Fantasy leagues as he continues to reap the benefits of playing on a line with Connor McDavid and Jordan Eberle. Coach Todd McLellan has been known to tinker with his lines however so caution should be advised.

    Oilers' Benoit Pouliot: Tallies two helpers in runaway win

    Pouliot notched two assists -- one on the power play -- in Thursday's 7-2 lambasting of the Senators. That's four points in two games coming out of the break for Pouliot, and circumstances suggest this may be a sustainable leap in production -- after all, they've come while he's played on a line with the freshly returned Connor McDavid and Jordan Eberle. That's a great situation for Pouliot, who should still be available off waivers in many season-long leagues and as a dirt-cheap option in daily formats.

    Oilers' Benoit Pouliot: Collects two points Tuesday

    Pouliot rang up a power-play goal and an assist in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Blue Jackets. Pouliot has four points in the past five games but can be enigmatic based on how he's been held without a point in 22 of 42 contests this campaign.

    Oilers' Benoit Pouliot: Modest contributions in victory

    Pouliot picked up a secondary assist and two penalty minutes in Monday's 4-2 win over the Panthers. At 6-foot-3, 200 pounds, Pouliot adds size to an Oilers lineup that has been punished often this season. The veteran hasn't helped out defensively as evidenced by a minus-7 rating, but is decent in his own zone with 10 goals and 21 points in 38 games.

    Oilers' Benoit Pouliot: Grabs two points Tuesday

    Pouliot scored a goal and chipped in a helper in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Coyotes. Pouliot is now up to an even 10 goals and 10 assists in 35 games this season. He's shown some real life since the holiday break, as eight of his 20 points have come in the eight games since. Many forget that the 29-year-old was a fourth-overall pick back in 2005, so he's got some pedigree and is worth taking a look at while he's scoring with regularity.

    Oilers' Benoit Pouliot: Two goals not enough in loss Tuesday

    Pouliot scored a pair of goals and fired five shots on goal in Sunday's loss to the Flames. While it was another defeat for Edmonton, it wasn't without the best efforts of Pouliot, who looked lethal on the second line with Jordan Eberle and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. They were the first points in five games for the 29-year-old, who now has seven goals and 14 points in 28 games on the season. Pouliot has never been a huge point producer, but he's capable of hitting 20 goals in a top-six role with an offensively talented Oilers squad.

    Oilers' Benoit Pouliot: Will play Saturday

    Pouliot (lower body) will return to action Saturday against the Avalanche. Pouliot has missed the Oilers' last eight games with a lower-body ailment, but returned to practice Thursday, and is ready to return to Edmonton's lineup for Saturday's matchup with Colorado. The former first-round pick has tallied 12 points (five goals, seven assists) in 24 games this season, and will return to a top-six role Saturday, skating alongside Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle on the Oilers' second line.

    Oilers' Benoit Pouliot: Out Thursday

    Pouliot (lower body) will not play Thursday night against the Blackhawks. Pouliot hasn't played at all in December, a span of seven games. Of course, the shifty winger is on injured reserve, but will be eligible to return once healthy.

    Oilers' Benoit Pouliot: Won't play Tuesday

    Pouliot (lower body) won't play Tuesday against the Rangers, Derek Van Diest of the Edmonton Sun reports. Pouliot returned to practice Thursday, but apparently still isn't ready to return to game action. He's missed the Oilers' last seven contests with a lower-body injury, so the veteran winger may understandably require several practices to get back up to game speed. Pouliot appears to be on the brink of drawing back into Edmonton's lineup, so a return to action Thursday against the Blackhawks is a distinct possibility.

    Oilers' Benoit Pouliot: Not ready, but close

    Pouliot (lower body) is not quite ready yet, but appears to be close to rejoining the lineup, Oilers play-by-play announcer Jack Michaels reports. Pouliot was on the ice during practice Sunday, and while his status for Monday remains a bit unclear, Michaels suggests that he'd be surprised if the winger doesn't play in one of the next two contests. Expect an update on his status at some point prior to the game.
