    Blues' Derrick Pouliot: Signs one-year deal

    Derrick Pouliot secured a one-year, two-way contract from St. Louis on Monday.It's telling that the best deal Pouliot could find was two-way in nature, considering he hasn't played in the minors since 2016-17. The No. 8 overall pick from the 2012 NHL Draft, it's hard not to consider the blueliner a complete bust at this point. the additions of Jordie Benn and Oscar Fantenberg will only make Pouliot's chances of securing an Opening Night roster spot that much worse, so don't be surprised to see him playing in the minors for much of the 2019-20 campaign.

    Canucks' Derrick Pouliot: Set to hit open market

    The Vancouver Canucks didn't qualify Pouilot's contract, making him an unrestricted free agent July 1, Rick Dhaliwal of Sportsnet reports.The 25-year-old hasn't had the career he'd hoped when he was drafted eighth overall in 2012. This past season with the Canucks, Derrick Pouliot logged an average of 17:10 of ice time per game, and chipped in 12 points in just 62 games. He was solid on the defensive end, however, accumulating 76 hits and 71 blocks this campaign. Pouliot is set to find his third team in six years, and will likely have to settle for a "prove-it," one-year deal from a willing team for next season.

    Canucks' Derrick Pouliot: Struggling to produce

    Derrick Pouliot has just a goal and two assists on the year.Pouliot posted career highs in all offensive categories last season, including 22 points, more than triple his previous best (seven). He anchors the top power-play unit, which has been potent at 18.5 percent, good for 15th in the league. More points are bound to come should he stay there, but it's looking unlikely he'll match last season's numbers, as he's currently on pace for just 12 points.

    Canucks' Derrick Pouliot: Garners assist versus Jets

    Derrick Pouliot snagged his second helper of the season in Thursday's 4-1 loss to Winnipeg.Pouliot hit Bo Horvat with a pass at the defensive blue line and then let the center do the rest as he went the length of the ice to score the Vancouver Canucks' lone goal of the game. After spending three much maligned years in Pittsburgh, the blueliner appears to have found his home in Vancouver, as he registered career highs in goals (three) and assists (19) last year and could challenge those marks again in 2018-19.

    Derrick Pouliot signed a one-year, $1.1 million contract with the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday.Despite being a healthy scratch 11 times in 2017-18, Pouliot finished the season with the second-most points (19) on Vancouver's blue line. The 24-year-old also recorded 118 blocked shots and 79 hits while averaging 17:51 per game. Vancouver is expected to return all seven defensemen for next season, so unless Pouliot can steal a consistent top-four role, he'll remain off fantasy radars outside of deep leagues.
