  • Oilers' Benoit Pouliot: Likely to return Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/9/17) Pouliot (undisclosed) said Thursday that he is feeling good and healthy and will likely slot back into the Oilers' lineup for Friday night's showdown with the Penguins.

    While it can sometimes be risky to take players at their own word regarding injuries, the Oilers have been cautious with Pouliot's timetable, so there's no reason to think he won't be ready to go Friday after a 10-game absence. All the same, the winger has just three assists and a minus-3 rating since the calendar turned to 2017, so he isn't much of a fantasy asset in most formats.

    Oilers' Benoit Pouliot: Inching closer to return

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/8/17) Pouliot (undisclosed) has been cleared for contact and "getting quite close to returning," per Oilers coach Todd McLellan.

    While the low-end fantasy winger won't play Tuesday against the Islanders, he appears poised to come back with the Penguins in town Friday. Pouliot is good for the occasional goal or assist -- he's scored five times with just as many helpers in 51 games this season -- but the 30-year-old is caught in a bottom-six role, and that's not an ideal situation for such an enigmatic player.

    Oilers' Benoit Pouliot: Cleared for contact

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/7/17) Pouliot (undisclosed) can start taking contact at practice, but is still not ready to suit up against the Islanders on Tuesday.

    Following Tuesday' clash, the Oilers have two potential practice days which could allow Pouliot the time he needs absorb some contact in preparation of returning to the lineup. The winger, who has been sidelined for Edmonton's last nine outings, was stuck in a rut prior to getting hurt as he was on a 26-game goal drought. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, the 30-year-old has been unable to compile much in terms of stats over that stretch with just four helpers, eight PIM, and 16 blocked shot.
