Pens' Pouliot (Upper Body) Out Saturday

News: Derrick Pouliot will not play on Saturday in Game 2 of the Penguins' playoff series against the Rangers.

Pens' Pouliot (Upper Body) Skates Saturday

News: Derrick Pouliot (upper body) participated in the Penguins' morning skate on Saturday, Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: He's still questionable to play in Game 2, but the fact that he was able to hit the ice for the Penguin's morning skate on Saturday indicates that he may be healthy enough to rejoin Pittsburgh's lineup for the second game of their series with the Rangers. The team will provide an update on his status prior to puck drop on Saturday.

Pens' Pouliot (Upper Body) Still Day-To-Day

News: Derrick Pouliot (upper body) remains day-to-day in advance of Game 2 against the Rangers, Katie Strang of ESPN reports.
Analysis: Derrick Pouliot missed Game 1, as did Christian Ehrhoff, which allowed Brian Dumoulin to enter the lineup. While Pouliot participated in practice Wednesday and morning skate Thursday, his status is still up in the air for Game 2 on Saturday.

Pens' Pouliot Officially Out For Game 1

News: Derrick Pouliot (upper body) has officially been ruled out for Game 1 of the Penguins' first-round playoff series against the Rangers, Katie Strang of ESPN New York reports.
Analysis: With both Derrick Pouliot and Christian Ehrhoff (upper body) unavailable, the Penguins will turn to Brian Dumoulin to enter the lineup as a member of the third defensive pairing. Pouliot was able to participate in Wednesday's practice and Thursday's morning skate, which gives him a shot at playing in Game 2 of the series Saturday.

Pens' Pouliot Likely Out For Game 1

News: Derrick Pouliot (upper body) isn't expected to play Thursday in Game 1 of the Penguins' playoff series with the Rangers, NHL.com's Wes Crosby reports.
Analysis: Derrick Pouliot was a participant in Wednesday's team session, but with coach Mike Johnston suggested afterwards that the blueliner "probably needs another practice or two," the implication is that he's not being viewed as an option for Game 1. With Christian Ehrhoff (upper body) also ruled out, the Penguins will play either of their two recent AHL call-ups -- Scott Harrington or Brian Dumoulin -- on the third defensive pair next to Taylor Chorney.

Pens' Pouliot Practices Wednesday

News: Derrick Pouliot (upper body) participated in Wednesday's practice.
Analysis: Derrick Pouliot rotated in on the third defensive pairing with a number of players during the session, so it's difficult to discern at this stage if he'll be available for Thursday's postseason opener against the Rangers. More clarity on that front should arrive following the team's morning skate Thursday.

Penguins' Pouliot Misses Practice

News: Derrick Pouliot (upper body) didn't practice Tuesday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: Derrick Pouliot's status should be updated Wednesday, but it appears doubtful that he'll be available Thursday's playoff opener against the Rangers at this stage.

Pens' Pouliot Unlikely To Play Saturday

News: Derrick Pouliot (upper body) is unlikely to play Saturday against the Sabres, Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Derrick Pouliot's expected absence figures to keep the Penguins shorthanded on defense for a second straight night. Taylor Chorney will see an influx of minutes with Pouliot unavailable.

Pens' Pouliot Out For Friday

News: Derrick Pouliot (upper body) will not play Friday against the Islanders, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: With Derrick Pouliot unavailable and Christian Ehrhoff (upper body) and Kris Letang (concussion) still sidelined, the Penguins will be forced to ice only five defensemen Friday -- hardly an ideal scenario with a playoff spot not yet secured. It seems likely that Pouliot won't be healthy enough to play in Saturday's regular-season finale against the Sabres, either, but nothing on that front will probably be announced until the warmups that day.

Penguins' Pouliot Day-To-Day

News: Derrick Pouliot is day-to-day with an upper-body injury.
Analysis: As a result, the Penguins are taking a wait-and-see approach with Derrick Pouliot as Friday's game against the Islanders approaches. Through 34 NHL games this season, Pouliot has notched seven points, while recording a minus-11 rating.

Pens' Pouliot Leaves With Injury Tuesday

News: Derrick Pouliot left Tuesday's game against the Senators with an undisclosed injury.
Analysis: He saw just over 10 minutes of action through two periods, but did not come out for the third. Derrick Pouliot kicked a goal into his own net before leaving, an accident that seems to aptly describe his rookie season. Make no mistake, though -- Pouliot projects to develop into one of the top power-play whizzes in the league.

Pouliot Helping Pens Out

News: Derrick Pouliot tallied power-play assists in back-to-back games over the weekend.
Analysis: His role with Pittsburgh has increased with Kris Letang sidelined due to a concussion. Derrick Pouliot has the skill to produce offensively but is far from a finished product. He now has two goals and seven points in 30 games and deserves consideration as a waiver-wire pickup.

Pens' Pouliot Learning On The Job

News: Derrick Pouliot is pointless with a minus-3 rating in two games since his recall from the Baby Penguins.
Analysis: The organization's top defensive prospect is going through a learning curve and has just two goals and five points in 28 games. Derrick Pouliot skated 26 shifts and finished with 21:00 TOI -- third-most among blueliners.

Penguins Recall Pouliot

News: The Penguins recalled Derrick Pouliot from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Tuesday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: Derrick Pouliot -- who has notched two goals and five points in 26 games with the big club this season-- gives the Penguins' blue line some added depth in advance of Tuesday's game against the Blues, with Christian Ehrhoff currently banged up.

Derrick Pouliot

Pens' Pouliot Sent To AHL

News: Derrick Pouliot was sent to AHL Wilkes-Barre Scranton on Saturday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: Derrick Pouliot has previously played in Wilkes-Barre Scranton before and will see extensive ice time to work on his game. With 26 appearances for Pittsburgh this season, it's certainly possible for him to be recalled before the end of the regular season.

Pens Scratch Pouliot Against Boston

News: Derrick Pouliot will serve as a healthy scratch Saturday against the Bruins.
Analysis: Derrick Pouliot played inconsistently in Pittsburgh's 6-4 win Wednesday against the Oilers. The promising blueliner has two goals and five points in 26 games.

Pens' Pouliot Finds Back Of Net On Sunday

News: Derrick Pouliot potted a power-play goal Sunday, snapping a 15-game pointless streak.
Analysis: The Penguins gave Derrick Pouliot considerable time on the top power-play unit as the contest went on, a possible foreshadowing of things to come. The rookie now has two goals and four points in 20 games, but will no doubt improve upon those totals as his game matures and his responsibilities increase.

Pens' Pouliot Gets Shot On No. 1 Power Play

News: Derrick Pouliot played on the Pens' top power-play unit Sunday, bumping Evgeni Malkin to the second unit.
Analysis: Coach Mike Johnston said he wanted more shots from the point to spread Chicago's PK unit and Derrick Pouliot responded with a number of good looks -- though he was credited with only one shot. Most likely, the Pens will flip-flop the two players as soon as Tuesday against Washington, but the move shows Johnston's confidence in the young blueliner.

Pens To Play Pouliot On Power Play Wednesday

News: Coach Mike Johnston said that Derrick Pouliot will see time on the power play Wednesday in Edmonton.
Analysis: Derrick Pouliot, who hasn't scored since his first game for Pittsburgh, is still looking to fit in at the NHL level. A big game Wednesday would go a long way towards securing his role, especially with the team in the first game of a three-game Western Canada road trip. The rookie has one goal and three points in nine contests.

Pouliot Back In Pittsburgh

News: With Christian Ehrhoff sidelined Sunday, Derrick Pouliot will serve as part of a third defensive pairing with Robert Bortuzzo on Sunday.
Analysis: Derrick Pouliot's primary value is on the power play, so it will be interesting to see how much time on the man advantage Pittsburgh gives the young blueliner. He has a goal and three points in eight NHL games, plus 23 points (7G, 16A) in 28 games for Wilkes-Barre.

Pens Recall Pouliot From AHL

News: Derrick Pouliot was recalled from AHL Wilkes-Barre Scranton on Saturday.
Analysis: With Christian Ehrhoff dealing with a possible concussion, Derrick Pouliot will join the squad to give the team seven healthy options on defense. The lineup spot for Sunday's game against the Predators will likely come down to Pouliot and Scott Harrington, who filled in for Ehrhoff on Friday night.

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.

Pouliot Sent To AHL By Penguins

News: The Penguins have assigned Derrick Pouliot to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Derrick Pouliot, who notched three points in seven games with the big club, returns to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton as the team's top scorer, with 20 points in 23 AHL games.
