  • Penguins' Derrick Pouliot: Opportunity knocking Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/26/16) Due to the injury Brian Dumoulin (upper body) suffered Saturday, Pouliot will play against the Rangers on Sunday. "We have lots of confidence in Pouliot," coach Mike Sullivan said.

    Pouliot has served as a healthy scratch since last playing March 5. "He's been working hard in practice," Sullivan noted. "It's an opportunity for him to step up and help us win." The 22-year-old has tallied six assists in 18 games but is still honing his craft in the defensive zone.

    Penguins' Derrick Pouliot: Passed over for Ben Lovejoy

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/26/16) Pouliot is unlikely to skate Saturday as fellow blueliner Ben Lovejoy will take Olli Maatta's place in the lineup.

    Lovejoy provides a stabilizing force on the blue line, at least moreso than does the 22-year-old Pouliot. It appears Pouliot will have to wait for at least one more injury before getting a crack at the lineup.

    Penguins' Derrick Pouliot: Will get chance on blue line

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/25/16) Pouliot will likely see action with Olli Maatta (lower body) sidelined on a week-to-week basis.

    The Penguins brass doesn't seem to entirely trust Pouliot, but the organization has little choice to go with the young blueliner. He's served as a healthy scratch since March 5. Pouliot has tallied six assists in 18 games, but the team will look for competent defense from him more than anything else. The last 10 regular season games will give fantasy owners a chance to look into his future with Pittsburgh, as a poor showing could turn him into offseason trade fodder.

    Penguins' Derrick Pouliot: Four points in last five games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/27/16) Pouliot picked up two assists in Saturday's win over Winnipeg.

    The young defender has four helpers in his last five games and a plus-3 rating. Pouliot is a talent, but his own-zone game still needs work. But fantasy owners don't care about own-zone play and his offence is starting to finally show. He'll face competition for time from newcomer Justin Schultz, but we like Pouliot a lot. He should be on your radar. And maybe even on your roster sooner rather than later.

    Penguins' Derrick Pouliot: Opportunity knocking

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/21/16) Pouliot collected his second assist in three games and has begun to see regular playing time with the Pens.

    With Ben Lovejoy out with an injury which appears to be more than the day-to-day variety, Pouliot may finally have another opportunity to serve as part of Pittsburgh's regular rotation of defensemen. His defense is still a work in progress, but if he produces passable play in his own end then his touted offensive potential may become worthwhile in fantasy circles. Pouliot has totaled four assists in 12 games for the Pens.

    Pouliot tallied power-play assists in back-to-back games over the weekend.His role with Pittsburgh has increased with Kris Letang sidelined due to a concussion. Pouliot has the skill to produce offensively but is far from a finished product. He now has two goals and seven points in 30 games and deserves consideration as a waiver-wire pickup.
