  • Penguins' Derrick Pouliot: Demoted to minors

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/10/17) Pouliot was reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Monday.

    Pouliot has been a top prospect on the Pens' blue line for what seems like forever, but has consistently been beat out for spots in the lineup by guys like Cameron Gaunce and Chad Ruhwedel (arm). The 23-year-old Pouliot will be a restricted free agent at the end of the season, which will make GM Jim Rutherford's decision an interesting one to watch for Pittsburgh fans. Fantasy owners, on the other hand, could have an easier choice considering the blueliner has zero points in 11 outings this year and seems to be slipping further down the organization's depth chart.

    Penguins' Derrick Pouliot: Back with top club for finale

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/9/17) Pouliot was recalled from AHL Wilke-Barre/Scranton on Sunday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Pouliot has drawn into 10 previous contests for the Penguins this season but has not recorded a point over that span. Although the club has ample bodies along the blue line, many of the regulars may get the day off Sunday. That could open up a spot for Pouliot in Sunday's lineup.

    Penguins' Derrick Pouliot: Headed back to minors

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/21/17) Pouliot was assigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Tuesday, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    The former top prospect has yet to distinguish himself over parts of three seasons with the Penguins, registering two goals and 12 assists over 66 career games. With Pouliot failing to impress in his latest stint with the big club, he'll head back to the AHL in order to pick up heavier ice time. Frank Corrado was recalled in a corresponding move to add depth on the Penguins' blue line.

    Penguins' Derrick Pouliot: Brought up Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/17/17) Pouliot was recalled from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Friday.

    This move could be a sign that Ron Hainsey's undisclosed injury will prevent him from playing in the upcoming contest. Pouliot has failed to record a point with a minus-3 rating over eight NHL games this year, so it's completely safe to leave him on the waiver wire.

    Penguins' Derrick Pouliot: Sent back to minors

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/8/17) Pouliot (illness) was reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Wednesday.

    Per NHL rules, Pouliot must have been cleared from his illness that kept him out of the team's practice Tuesday. The former No. 8 overall pick in the 2012 NHL Draft was a highly touted prospect coming out of the WHL, but he's been supplanted in recent years by a wealth of talent playing for the Baby Pens, including guys like Chad Ruhwedel and Cameron Gaunce.
