Oilers' Pouliot Nets Three Points In Finale

News: Benoit Pouliot potted his 19th goal of the season and added two assists in Saturday's loss to Vancouver.
Analysis: Benoit Pouliot finished the season strong, racking up two goals and four points in his last three games. The 28-year-old registered 34 points, including four power-play goals, in 58 games on the season. He's proved he can be a reliable secondary scorer behind top offensive guns Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.

Goal, Assist For Oilers' Pouliot

News: Benoit Pouliot scored a goal and added an assist in Friday's 4-0 win over the Stars.
Analysis: Believe it or not, Benoit Pouliot actually has 10 points in the last eight games, which is a decent amount of sizzle no matter how you spin it. He's only got 30 points on the year but has come alive of late as the Oilers wind down yet another season where they'll miss the playoffs.

Oilers' Pouliot Adds Two Helpers Wednesday

News: Benoit Pouliot nabbed two assists in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Avalanche.
Analysis: The winger now has 16 goals and 12 assists through 50 games this year, and actually sports a plus-1 rating for the struggling Oilers.

Two Goals For Oilers' Pouliot

News: Benoit Pouliot sniped a pair of goals in Monday's 4-1 win over the visiting Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Benoit Pouliot's quest for hockey's "Cy Young" award continues, as he's now up to 16 goals and just eight assists in 46 games this year. The 16 tallies actually tie his career high from 2011-12 with Boston, but the lack of helpers limits his value, even in deeper leagues. It is interesting, however, that he's managed to skate to a minus-1 (tied for the Oilers' lead) on one of the league's worst teams, especially since seven of his fellow forwards are a minus-11 or worse.

Oilers' Pouliot (Illness) Playing Monday

News: Benoit Pouliot (illness) will play Monday against the Red Wings, Derek Van Diest of the Edmonton Sun reports.
Analysis: Benoit Pouliot was dealing with an illness, but after going through warmups he was given the green light to play, though news didn't surface until right around game-time. Pouliot has 20 points (13 goals) and a minus-1 rating in 42 games this season.

Oilers' Pouliot (Illness) A Game-Time Decision

News: Benoit Pouliot (illness) is a game-time decision for Monday's tilt with the Red Wings.
Analysis: Benoit Pouliot's illness appears to have subsided a bit, but not enough to guarantee that he will take part in Monday's game. The decision on his status should come at some point before the opening face-off, but could come as late as pregame warmups.

Oilers' Pouliot Out Sunday

News: Benoit Pouliot (illness) won't play Sunday against the Hurricanes.
Analysis: As a result, consider Benoit Pouliot, who has notched 13 goals and 20 points in 42 games to date, day-to-day in advance of Monday's game against the Red Wings.

Pouliot Powers Oilers To Win Tuesday

News: Benoit Pouliot scored both Edmonton goals in a 2-1 win over Minnesota on Tuesday.
Analysis: He worked well with Jordan Eberle, who set up both tallies. Benoit Pouliot had been stone-cold even when healthy recently, with just two points in his last nine games entering Tuesday's action. It was his first multi-point effort in more than a month, dating back to Jan. 15.

Oilers' Pouliot (Foot) Set To Return Saturday

News: Benoit Pouliot (foot) has been activated from injured reserve and is on the ice for pregame warmups ahead of Saturday's game against the Senators, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: Benoit Pouliot was considered a game-time decision heading into Saturday, but his activation and subsequent appearance at warmups suggests he's ready to go. The winger, who hasn't played since Feb. 2, has 11 goals and six assists over 33 games this season.

News: Benoit Pouliot (foot) will be a game-time decision Saturday against the Senators, play-by-play announcer Jack Michaels reports.
Analysis: Benoit Pouliot appears to be nearing a return, but his status is still unclear heading into Saturday. He should receive an updated status either at morning skate or at some point during the day prior to the opening face-off.

Oilers' Pouliot Still Sidelined

News: Benoit Pouliot (foot) won't play Thursday against Montreal.
Analysis: Benoit Pouliot is inching closer to a return, but the winger's balky foot isn't quite right just yet. On a positive note, Pouliot indicated he "felt very good" while skating with the team Thursday morning, potentially setting him up for a return to action Saturday against the Sens.

Oilers' Pouliot Considered Day-To-Day

News: Benoit Pouliot, who was placed on injured reserve Tuesday due to a foot injury, is considered day-to-day, the Oilers' official website reports.
Analysis: Benoit Pouliot said he won't be available for Tuesday's game against the Islanders, but he may be back for Thursday's contest in Montreal. The recent IR transaction won't impact his status, as he has already been out for seven days.

Oilers' Pouliot Lands on IR

News: The Oilers have placed Benoit Pouliot (foot) on IR.
Analysis: Benoit Pouliot, who last suited up Feb. 2, reported improvement with his balky foot, but it remains unclear when he will return to action for the Oilers.

Pouliot Out Monday

News: Benoit Pouliot (foot) is not ready to return to the lineup for Monday's game against the Devils,
Analysis: Benoit Pouliot has been nearing a return from his foot injury suffered last week, but he was already considered doubtful to return for Monday's contest so this news just confirms the earlier report. His next chance to come back will be Tuesday's contest against the Islanders.

Oilers' Pouliot Doubtful Monday

News: Benoit Pouliot (foot) is considered doubtful for Monday's game against the Devils, Oilers broadcaster Jack Michaels reports.
Analysis: Benoit Pouliot is reportedly closing in on a return, but Monday isn't expected to be the day. He hasn't officially been ruled out, however, so there is still a slight chance he does return. If not, Pouliot's next opportunity will come Tuesday against the Islanders.

Oilers' Pouliot 'Highly Unlikely' To Play Saturday

News: Benoit Pouliot (foot) is considered "highly unlikely" to play Saturday against the Maple Leafs, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: Benoit Pouliot was absent from Friday's practice, so barring dramatic progress overnight, he'll miss a second straight game. Coach Todd Nelson indicated that Pouliot is viewed as day-to-day at this time, so there's optimism he might be able to return at some point next week.

Oilers' Pouliot Not Practicing Friday

News: Benoit Pouliot (foot) is not practicing Friday, Rob Tychkowski of the Edmonton Sun reports.

Oilers' Pouliot Likely Out Wednesday

News: Benoit Pouliot (foot) wasn't on the ice for morning skate and appears to be out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Penguins, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: Benoit Pouliot hasn't been cleared to skate since leaving Monday's game against the Sharks with a foot injury, so he'll more than likely join Taylor Hall in the press box for Wednesday's contest. The Oilers recalled Iiro Pakarinen from AHL Oklahoma City to assume Pouliot's lineup spot.

Oilers' Pouliot Suffers Foot Injury Monday

News: Benoit Pouliot suffered a foot injury during Monday's game against the Sharks and will not return.
Analysis: Benoit Pouliot should be considered day-to-day until further news is released on the severity of his injury. Looking ahead, he'll likely be a game-time decision for Wednesday's contest against the Penguins.

Pouliot Lone Man In For Oilers Again

News: For the second consecutive game, Benoit Pouliot accounted for the only two goals the Oilers managed to score, as he potted one shorthanded and one on the power play in Thursday's loss to Tampa Bay.
Analysis: Benny's now on a four-game goal-scoring streak, offering a rare bright spot for the miserable Oilers. It's not often that you see a guy score all four of a team's goals over a two-game span, so you have to wonder where the rest of the Edmonton offense is hiding.

Pouliot Accounts For Edmonton Offense In Loss

News: Benoit Pouliot was the whole of the Edmonton offense Tuesday, scoring both the team's goals (one on the power play) in a 4-2 loss to the Blues. He also racked up six penalty minutes and three hits.
Analysis: Hey, that's three straight games with a marker for Benoit Pouliot, who's tallied four of the Oilers' last nine goals. Still, he's a low-end fantasy option, as his offensive production is hovering right in the neighborhood of last year's 36-point campaign with the Rangers, while his hit and PIM production -- Tuesday aside -- has declined.

Oilers' Pouliot Bags Goal In Loss

News: Benoit Pouliot netted his sixth goal of the season in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Panthers.
Analysis: After missing a month with a foot injury, Benoit Pouliot now has three goals on just six shots in his five games back. That rate of scoring will come down, but the 28-year-old should be able to challenge the 30-point mark if he stays healthy for the remainder of the season.

Oilers' Pouliot Nabs Goal In Return

News: Benoit Pouliot (foot) tallied a goal in his return to action Friday against the Avalanche.
Analysis: Making his first appearance since Nov. 21 after recovering from a fractured foot, Benoit Pouliot immediately stepped into a top-six role and provided dividends right away. Though he was able to provide an impact in his first game back, Pouliot's outlook still remains rather dim for an Oilers squad that has largely failed to establish any sort of sustained continuity offensively this season.

Oilers' Pouliot Set To Play Friday

News: Benoit Pouliot (foot) was activated from injured reserve and will play Friday against the Avalanche.
Analysis: He'll draw in on the Oilers' second line to replace David Perron, who was traded to the Penguins earlier in the day. Benoit Pouliot's respectable two-way play should be a welcome addition, but he won't be able to save the sinking Oilers, who are competing for the No. 1 draft pick at this point in the season. The winger had eight points and a minus-3 rating over 20 games before fracturing his foot in late November.

Analysis: Benoit Pouliot believes he is ready to play and is just waiting for the doctors to give him the green light to play and the coaching staff to put him in the game.
