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.

Oilers' Pouliot Could Play Friday

News: Benoit Pouliot (foot) could return to the lineup Friday, according to the Oilers web site.
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.

Oilers Pouliot (Foot) Spotted At Practice

News: Benoit Pouliot (broken foot) was on the ice for Tuesday's morning skate, Bob Stauffer of 630 CHED reports.
Analysis: Benoit Pouliot is right around his original timetable of five-to-six weeks, so his return may not be far off. While it would be surprising if he played in Tuesday's game against the Kings, Pouliot now bears close watching.

Oilers Place Pouliot (Foot) On IR

News: Benoit Pouliot (foot) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday.
Analysis: Benoit Pouliot suffered a broken foot in Friday's contest, so the move isn't overly surprising considering the nature of the injury and his projected absence. Look for Matt Hendricks or Jesse Joensuu to see extra work on the fourth line while the winger is on the shelf.

Oilers' Pouliot (Broken Foot) Out 5-6 Weeks

News: Benoit Pouliot (broken foot) will miss five to six weeks, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.
Analysis: The lengthy absence wasn't unexpected given the nature of the injury, which Benoit Pouliot suffered during Friday's game against the Devils. The recovery timetable puts him on track to return in early- to mid-January, but a more definitive date probably won't be pinned down until he resumes practicing.

Oilers' Pouliot Suffers Broken Foot

News: Benoit Pouliot suffered a broken foot and will be sidelined indefinitely.
Analysis: He was hit in the foot by a Marek Zidlicky shot, breaking his foot in Friday's game. Taylor Hall will move over on the Oilers depth chart to left wing with Benoit Pouliot out, stressing the Oilers depth.

Oilers' Pouliot Grabs Two Points

News: Benoit Pouliot recorded a goal and assist in Sunday's 3-1 victory over the Rangers.
Analysis: Playing against his former club, Benoit Pouliot nabbed just his second goal of the season. He put up a career high 36 points last season with the Blueshirts, and skating on the first line with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle, he could come close to that number again this year.

Oilers Promote Pouliot To Top Line

News: Benoit Pouliot will be the first to play on the top line with Taylor Hall out, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Analysis: Benoit Pouliot only has one goal and three assists so far this season so it's not like his play has forced the Oilers' hand. A conspiracy theorist might believe that Edmonton is doing this to justify the size of the contract the team handed him this off-season.

Oilers' Pouliot Notches Two Points In Win

News: Benoit Pouliot recorded a goal and assist in Monday's 3-0 win over the Canadiens.
Analysis: With four points and a minus-2 rating through nine games, Benoit Pouliot has been a serviceable depth scorer for the Oilers, but probably doesn't have much upside beyond that. Those probing the Oilers for potential breakout candidates beyond the team's stars are better off taking a gamble on Mark Arcobello or Nail Yakupov, linemates of Pouliot's who are younger and offer much more in terms of untapped potential.

Oilers' Pouliot Ready To Go

News: Benoit Pouliot (hip) skated Wednesday and will be ready to play in Thursday's opener, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Analysis: Benoit Pouliot will skate on the second line with Nail Yakupov and Leon Draisaitl. This line may hold the key to the Oilers success this season as they need secondary scoring but with this being Pouliot's first season in Edmonton and Draisaitl a rookie, it may end up being to much to ask.

Oilers' Pouliot Probable For Opener

News: Benoit Pouliot is nursing a hip flexor injury but is considered probable for Thursday's season opener against the Flames.
Analysis: Despite the existing wealth of young forward talent already on the Edmonton roster, Benoit Pouliot chose to join the club on a five-year deal in the summer. He put together a high-quality preseason, contributing a goal, assist and a plus-3 rating over four games, a performance that will likely earn him a role on the second line to begin the campaign. He's expected to slot in as the elder statesman of a line that includes rookie Leon Draisaitl and 21-year-old right wing Nail Yakupov.

Pouliot Signed By Oilers To Five-Year Deal

News: The Oilers have signed Benoit Pouliot to a five-year, $20 million deal, ESPN's Pierre LeBrun reports.
Analysis: Benoit Pouliot cashes in big after recording 15 goals and 36 points in 80 games with the Rangers this past season. Given the terms of the deal, it's clear that the Oilers have big plans for Pouliot, who figures to see a spike in production this season, assuming he ends up in a top-six role.

Rangers' Pouliot Pots Second Of Series

News: Benoit Pouliot staked the Rangers to an early lead in Wednesday's Game 4 victory over the Kings with a first-period goal.
Analysis: Benoit Pouliot's second tally of the series ended Kings goalie Jonathan Quick's shutout streak at 123 minutes and 1 second, with the Rangers' prior goal having come in the second period of Game 2. The 27-year-old has five goals and five assists over the Rangers' 24 playoff games.

Rangers' Pouliot Pots Goal In Game 1 Defeat

News: Benoit Pouliot potted a goal in Wednesday's Game 1 loss to the Kings.
Analysis: Benoit Pouliot scored the game's first goal on a breakaway, after stealing the puck from the Kings' Drew Doughty and catching the rest of the defense out of position. The winger failed to record a point in the six-game series with Montreal, but will need to provide occasional offensive spark if the Rangers hope to capture the Stanley Cup.

Rangers' Pouliot Practices Thursday

News: Benoit Pouliot did practice at Thursday's optional skate, reports Andrew Gross of The Record.
Analysis: After getting what was called a "maintenance day" on Wednesday, it's good news to see Benoit Pouliot skating. After a surprising 36-point campaign, Pouliot is finally showing an ability to contribute offensively somewhat consistently on New York's third line. The former first-round pick has eight points in 16 postseason games thus far.

Rangers Cashing in on Pouliot

News: Benoit Pouliot collected a goal and an assist in an overtime win over Pittsburgh on Friday.
Analysis: While four points (two goals) in his last three games is hardly busting at the seams, consider the former fourth overall (2005) pick's body of work and you'll understand our surprise. Truth is, Benoit Pouliot has looked more comfortable with the blue shirts this season than in any of his previous six seasons with four other teams. With six points (three goals) through eight playoff games, the 27-year-old is officially ranked in the to 20 of playoff-scoring leaders this post season.

Rangers' Pouliot Scores Game 7 Winner

News: Benoit Pouliot netted the game winning goal in Wednesday's Game 7 win over the Flyers.
Analysis: Benoit Pouliot scored midway through the second period to give his team a lead that they wouldn't relinquish, as Henrik Lundqvist was good enough to eliminate the Flyers. Pouliot finished Round 1 with two goals and two assists in seven games.

Pouliot Nets Goal In Rangers' Loss

News: Benoit Pouliot netted a goal in a 4-2, Game 2, loss to Philadelphia on Sunday.
Analysis: While the loss stings, Benoit Pouliot's continued offensive production has got to be a silver-lining for the favored Rangers. Dating back to the regular season, Pouliot has 11 points (four goals) in his last 12 games played.

Pouliot Streaking For Rangers

News: Benoit Pouliot scored a goal on his only shot in Tuesday's win over Carolina, pushing his point streak to six games.
Analysis: He's recorded exactly one point in each of those games, so let's not get overly excited, but nonetheless, Benoit Pouliot has been pleasantly productive recently, powering him to a career-high 35 points.

Rangers' Pouliot Adds Two Helpers

News: Benoit Pouliot picked up a pair of assists, went plus-2 and took a minor penalty in Monday's overtime win against the Coyotes.
Analysis: Even though both assists were of the secondary variety, it was a sharp game for Benoit Pouliot. He skated a bit more than usual -- 16:44 -- probably due to the fact that Martin St. Louis (flu) was only able to take 16 shifts.
