Flyers' Derrick Pouliot: Inks deal with Flyers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouliot and the Flyers agreed to a one-year, two-way deal on Friday, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Pouliot spent most of last season with AHL San Antonio, scoring an impressive 39 points in 58 games. He was held scoreless in his only two games with the Blues. The left-handed defenseman should have an opportunity to fight for a bottom-pair role this training camp.

Derrick Pouliot: Non-tendered by Blues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouliot did not receive a qualifying offer from the Blues and will becomes a UFA on Friday, Patrick Williams of reports.

Pouliot served as organizational depth for the Blues in 2019-20, posting seven goals and 39 points in 59 outings with AHL San Antonio. He also made two appearances at the NHL level. The Penguins' first-round pick from 2012 boasts 202 games of NHL experience over parts of six seasons. Pouliot could be an intriguing option for teams in need of help on the blue line heading into 2020-21.

Blues' Derrick Pouliot: Sent back to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blues assigned Pouliot to AHL San Antonio on Sunday.

The 25-year-old saw action in the past two games for the Blues, going pointless while averaging 8:20 of ice time. Pouliot's demotion will clear the way for the returns of Carl Gunnarsson (illness) and Robert Bortuzzo (suspension), as both can draw back into the lineup for Monday's game against Chicago.

Blues' Derrick Pouliot: Recalled from AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouliot was promoted from AHL San Antonio on Sunday.

Pouliot will serve as some insurance on the blue line after Robert Bortuzzo was suspended for four games Sunday. The 25-year-old has racked up three goals and 17 points in 19 AHL games this season.

Blues' Derrick Pouliot: Sent to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouliot was assigned to AHL San Antonio on Wednesday, Jim Thomas of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The Blues thought Pouliot had a solid camp, but he was destined for minors anyway with the top-seven defensemen returning from last year's Stanley Cup win. However, the team sent Joel Edmundson to the Hurricanes in exchange for Justin Faulk, but that doesn't change Pouliot's chances of making the big club. In fact, he likely fell behind promising youngster Mitch Reinke in the pecking order, as Reinke was recalled to play in place of Pouliot.

Blues' Derrick Pouliot: Signs one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 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, 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: Back in press box
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouliot was a healthy scratch for Wednesday's game against the Rangers.

Pouliot was held pointless in his prior three outings, posting a minus-1 rating in each game, so he came out of the lineup to make way for Chris Tanev's return. He's sitting at 12 points in 61 contests. Pouliot won't provide value in the majority of leagues.

Canucks' Derrick Pouliot: Offers some depth scoring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouliot has a goal and three assists in his last 13 games.

The blueliner has also recorded 13 hits and nine blocked shots over that span. He scored a late goal in a 7-2 loss to the Sharks on Monday, but it's safe to avoid him in the vast majority of fantasy formats.

Canucks' Derrick Pouliot: Back in the lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouliot was back on the ice for Saturday's loss to the Maple Leafs.

Pouliot was scratched for Thursday's contest with Montreal, but wasn't impactful in his return. He had two hits and a shot on goal, while also missing a check en route to a goal against. Pouliot has just six points in 39 games this year.

Canucks' Derrick Pouliot: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouliot will be back in the lineup for Thursday's tilt with Nashville.

Pouliot has been a healthy scratch for the past five games, but will play Thursday night as Michael Del Zotto is scratched. Pouliot has just four points in 25 games, including only one power-play point, despite seeing ample time on the top unit earlier in the year.

Canucks' Derrick Pouliot: Healthy scratched
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouliot was a healthy scratch for Saturday's win over Los Angeles.

Pouliot has been a regular in the Canucks lineup all year, but sat out with the return of Alex Edler. Pouliot was a mainstay on the power-play unit, but had recently seen that responsibility shift to Ben Hutton. Pouliot had just four points in 25 games, and could see more time in the box as a result of his underwhelming numbers.

Canucks' Derrick Pouliot: Struggling to produce
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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.

Canucks' Derrick Pouliot: Secures another year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouliot signed a one-year, $1.1 million contract with the 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.

Canucks' Derrick Pouliot: Makes most of power-play minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouliot marked 22 points -- nine with the man advantage -- through 71 games in 2017-18.

Pouliot elevated his offensive game this season, but despite 118 blocked shots, he recorded a brutal minus-22 rating. The 24-year-old spent a majority of his time with the second pairing, so he was often facing solid competition with questionable goaltending behind him. Pouliot is set to become a restricted free agent this summer.

Canucks' Derrick Pouliot: Garners helper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouliot snagged an assist in Wednesday's 6-5 overtime loss to the Rangers.

Drafted with the eighth overall pick of the 2012 NHL Draft, Pouliot could never seem to crack the Penguins' lineup, as he logged a total of 67 NHL games spread across three seasons. During that time, the defenseman was limited to two goals and 12 assists. In just 53 games with the Canucks, the blueliner has tallied a pair of goals and 15 helpers -- including Wednesday's point. The Saskatchewan native will likely continue to offer bottom-end fantasy value, but he's clearly benefited from his move to Vancouver and can at least be counted on to be in the lineup on a consistent basis.

Canucks' Derrick Pouliot: Leads charge against Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouliot scored his second goal of the season and added two helpers in Tuesday's win over Carolina.

Pouliot factored in on all three of the team's goals, also blocking four shots in 20:47 of ice time. He's been a great addition for Vancouver and it hasn't necessarily shown from a fantasy perspective. He's got 10 points through 25 contests and is playing on the power play, so don't hesitate to take a gander on him. His steady ice time and willingness to join the rush make him worth owning in some deep leagues.

Canucks' Derrick Pouliot: Dishes out two assists Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouliot collected a pair of assists in Tuesday's win over Vegas.

Pouliot has moved onto the team's first power-play unit for the time being and is now up to five assists through 15 contests this season. The 23-year-old has some offensive upside and is probably worth a look in some deeper leagues while fellow blueliners Troy Stecher (knee) and Chris Tanev (upper body) remain out of the lineup. Pouliot hadn't recorded a point in seven straight games prior to Tuesday, but his role is increasing and his fantasy value is trending upwards.

Canucks' Derrick Pouliot: Fitting in with new team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pouliot has picked up two assists in his first five games with the Canucks.

Pouliot hasn't really stood out since arriving in Vancouver, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. The 23-year-old has been pretty average, and while he's made a few poor defensive plays, he's shown potential with some terrific passes and skating rushes. He's playing on the third defensive pairing and seeing second-unit power-play time, but don't look for him to be a significant fantasy contributor. Pouliot only has 72 career NHL games under his belt, so watch out for him in deeper leagues as he continues to grow his game.
