Pens Reassign Pouliot

News: Derrick Pouliot was reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton after Wednesday's loss to the Blackhawks, Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Derrick Pouliot had been subbing in for Kris Letang, who missed the game with a head injury. Letang's odds of being able to play immediately after the break don't appear promising at this juncture, so there's a good chance Pouliot will return to the parent club in short order.

Pouliot In For Pens On Wednesday

News: Derrick Pouliot will take Kris Letang's spot in the lineup and skate with Rob Scuderi, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: The team could have used Derrick Pouliot's talent on the power play Tuesday, when it went scoreless on six attempts. If Letang is forced to miss an extended amount of time, then Pouliot could prove to be a good source of power-play production.

Penguins Recall Pouliot From Minors

News: Derrick Pouliot was recalled from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Wednesday.
Analysis: With Simon Despres (illness) ruled out and Kris Letang (head) a game-time decision for Wednesday's game against the Senators, Derrick Pouliot could find himself in the Penguins lineup immediately upon his return to the parent club. The 2012 first-rounder has showcased elite offensive skills in the minors (21 points in 25 games) and flashed that potential during his earlier stay in Pittsburgh, notching a goal and two assists over his seven contests.

Pens' Pouliot Sits, Short-Term Future Uncertain

News: Derrick Pouliot served as a healthy scratch Saturday for the first time since Pittsburgh recalled him in December.
Analysis: The team opted for the defensive-oriented rookie, Scott Harrington, over Derrick Pouliot based upon matchups with Montreal.

The rookie has recorded one goal and three points in seven games for Pittsburgh.

Top Billing For Pens' Pouliot Monday

News: Derrick Pouliot will serve on the Pens' No. 1 power play Monday night.
Analysis: He's been keep quiet the last two games after picking up points in each of his first two contests. Coach Mike Johnston called him light on the puck after Saturday's loss and will be looking for the 20-year-old to win more one-on-one battles Monday in New Jersey.

Pens' Pouliot Points Again Monday

News: Derrick Pouliot picked up his first power-play assist -- and his second point in as many games -- in a 4-3 shootout loss Monday.
Analysis: His wrist shot from high in the slot was re-directed by Nick Spaling and helped Pittsburgh erase a two-goal, third-period deficit. Derrick Pouliot didn't look particularly strong in his own but will get another game under his belt Tuesday, when the Pens travel to Tampa Bay.

Pens' Pouliot Scores Memorable Goal Saturday

News: Derrick Pouliot flicked a wrister past Roberto Luongo for his first NHL goal on his first shot Saturday against Florida.
Analysis: The goal -- which also proved to be the game-winner -- came with a congratulatory post-game handshake from owner Mario Lemieux, who not only scored in his first game but also on his first shift. Derrick Pouliot, who skated 15:07 TOI, paired with Rob Scuderi and saw action on both of Pittsburgh's two power-play units. His spot in the starting lineup isn't guaranteed Monday and/or Tuesday with Robert Bortuzzo potentially returning from injury, but either way he's made a lasting first impression.

Pens' Pouliot Making Debut Saturday

News: The Penguins confirmed Derrick Pouliot will make his NHL debut Saturday and be paired with veteran Rob Scuderi.
Analysis: Christian Ehrhoff and Paul Martin are expected to miss three games (at least) and one game, respectively, giving Derrick Pouliot at least a small window to show what he can do. His performance on the man advantage will likely determine his near-term fantasy value.

Pens' Pouliot Practices As Power-Play Point Man

News: Derrick Pouliot practiced as a point man on the Pens' No. 2 power play Saturday.
Analysis: With Olli Maatta, Christian Ehrhoff and possibly Paul Martin missing from the team's lineup Saturday, there's a good chance Derrick Pouliot makes his NHL debut versus the Panthers. Given his pedigree and solid AHL play on the man advantage, the seventh overall pick in the 2012 draft makes for a fine speculative pickup in fantasy pools.

Penguins Recall Pouliot

News: Derrick Pouliot was recalled from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Saturday, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: One of the top blue line prospects in all of hockey, Derrick Pouliot is slated to get his first taste of NHL action with the Penguins dealing with multiple injuries on defense. The 20-year-old didn't play until early November while recovering from shoulder surgery, but tallied an impressive seven goals and 20 points over 23 games with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. He could make for an interesting speculative add if he ends up sticking around for a decent length of time.

Pens' Pouliot Skates Monday But Not Close

News: Derrick Pouliot (shoulder) skated for AHL Wilkes-Barre on Monday but is not expected to lose his non-contact jersey for three weeks, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: As a result, it's seems as though the Pens' top defensive prospect won't be ready for game action until late October, at the earliest. Derrick Pouliot is loaded with offensive potential but it remains to be seen as to when he'll make his NHL debut. Chances are the organization will give him time in Wilkes-Barre before promoting him to the Pens.

News: Penguins coach Mike Johnston said Tuesday that Derrick Pouliot (shoulder) likely won't be ready for training camp, Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Pens' Pouliot Progressing From Shoulder Surgery

News: Derrick Pouliot (shoulder) said he's been progressing as expected from May surgery to repair a torn labrum and remains hopeful he'll be back on the ice for training camp, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: The Penguins don't have a firm timetable for Derrick Pouliot's return, as he's only about eight weeks through a recovery process that typically last about four-to-six months. The 20-year-old has an impressive pedigree as the No. 8 overall selection in the 2012 NHL draft, so if Pouliot continues to progress well in his recovery and immediately proves effective in the minors once he returns to action, it's conceivable that he could see time with the Penguins this season.

Pens' Pouliot Undergoes Shoulder Surgery

News: Derrick Pouliot underwent successful shoulder surgery Wednesday.
Analysis: The procedure to repair Derrick Pouliot's labrum is expected to require four-to-six months of recovery time, likely eliminating any chance he has of winning a roster spot with the big club out of training camp.

News: Derrick Pouliot will stop by Pittsburgh later this week to have a shoulder injury evaluated by team physicians, Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: The defenseman, the eighth overall selection in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, suffered the injury while playing for WHL Portland last week, preventing him from joining the Penguins' AHL affiliate in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton for the Calder Cup playoffs. He's widely regarded as the team's top prospect, so the Penguins will do their due diligence in figuring out the full extent of the injury.

Pens' Pouliot Scores Thursday

News: Derrick Pouliot scored a power-play goal Thursday against the Blackhawks.
Analysis: The rookie defender also turned the puck over in his own end on several occasions. Derrick Pouliot makes for a great keeper league target, but it's very likely he returns to the WHL Portland Winterhawks for 2013-14.
