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.

Rangers' Pouliot Showing Consistency

News: Benoit Pouliot scored one of the team's two goals in a 2-1 win over Buffalo on Thursday.
Analysis: The production has been very consistent recently for former the first round pick. Benoit Pouliot, who has a career-high 35 points through 78 games, has especially come on since March, posting seven points (three goals) in as many games.

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.

Rangers' Pouliot Will Play Friday

News: Benoit Pouliot is in Columbus with the Rangers, and is good to go for Friday's matchup against the Blue Jackets, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Benoit Pouliot was back in New York on Wednesday awaiting the birth of his child, which caused him to miss Thursday's practice. He's back with the team now though, and should resume his regular spot on the third line Friday night.

Rangers' Pouliot Absent From Practice Thursday

News: Benoit Pouliot (personal) was absent from practice Thursday, Steve Zipay of Newsday reports.
Analysis: Benoit Pouliot returned to New York on Wednesday in anticipation of the birth of his daughter, so the Rangers more than likely just gave him an extra day to spend with his family. He's still expected to play Friday against the Blue Jackets.

Rangers' Pouliot Awakening From Slumber

News: Benoit Pouliot has two assists, six shots on goal and two penalty minutes in his last three games.
Analysis: After enduring a five-game pointless drought, the third-line winger found himself lined up on the team's second line with Brad Richards and Carl Hagelin in Minnesota. While Benoit Pouliot has been productive at times this season, and is technically nearing career-highs in goals, assists and points, he can only provide value for fantasy owners in the deepest of leagues and even then is a questionable addition.

Pouliot Scores Twice For Rangers

News: Benoit Pouliot scored twice in the Rangers' shootout win over Pittsburgh on Friday, giving him three points in the last two games.
Analysis: Pouliout has been giving the Rangers valuable secondary scoring with 23 points on the season. He's not going to bag two goals every game, but he can contribute when needed. The 16 minutes he played on Friday is over three minutes more than his season average of 12:53.

Pouliot A Mainstay on Rangers' Third Line

News: Benoit Pouliot is a plus-4 with a goal and an assist in his last four games.
Analysis: Although he has been held off the scorer's sheet over the past two games and six times over the last eight games, Benoit Pouliot has become a mainstay on the Rangers' third line with center Derick Brassard and Mats Zuccarello. The former fourth overall pick is also logging third-line power play minutes and should be considered in very deep formats if you're willing to endure his droughts.

Pouliot Starting Over, Rangers Win

News: Benoit Pouliot had a goal in the Rangers' 7-1 dismantling of the Maple Leafs on Saturday.
Analysis: After snapping a career-high six game point streak on Tuesday night, the veteran forward has a point in each of his last two games. Since the calendar flipped to December of 2013, Benoit Pouliot has been a consistent contributor to the team. With six goals and five assists in his last 14 games played, the former first-round pick is on arguably the most consistent run of his career. Provided his power play time continues, we actually recommend a flier on this guy in deeper leagues. But be prepared to cut bait if the run goes dry.

Rangers' Pouliot Quietly Streaking

News: Benoit Pouliot registered a power-play goal in Friday's 3-2 loss to Washington.
Analysis: Despite seeing a decrease in TOI (11:49) from his previous four games, Benoit Pouliot managed to extend his career-high six-game point (three goals, three assists) streak. After registering just four points in his first two months with the team, Pouliot has found a small groove in the month of December, registering a point in eight of his 10 games played. With head coach Alain Vigneault rolling the dice nightly, don't be surprised if you see Pouliot's minutes increased in Sunday's tilt with his former employer, Tampa Bay.

Rangers' Pouliot Warming Up?

News: Benoit Pouliot registered a point in Wednesday's shootout loss to Pittsburgh.
Analysis: It's Benoit Pouliot's fourth point (one goal, three assists) in the last six games. More interesting for Minnesota's fourth overall pick in the 2005 draft has been his increase in ice time. For the first time since late October, Pouliot has logged more 13 minutes in ice time in two of his last three games. It's not much to write home about, but it could be a trending statistic worthy of monitoring due to Pouliot's pedigree. Pouliot now has three goals, five assists and 33 PIM in 33 games played this season.

Rangers' Pouliot Scratched

News: Benoit Pouliot is a scratch for Tuesday's game against the Predators.
Analysis: Benoit Pouliot scored his third goal of the season Sunday against the Capitals and his first since Oct. 29. The 27-year-old has played in 30 games this season, notching six points while averaging 11:37 of ice time.

Pouliot Falling Out Of Favor In New York

News: Benoit Pouliot logged just over nine minutes of total ice time in Saturday's 5-2 win over Vancouver.
Analysis: Although he made the most of his time with five hits for the game, at the moment, it appears the Rangers' low-risk, high-reward summer gamble on the fourth overall pick in the 2005 NHL entry draft is being eased out of the lineup. Taylor Pyatt or any number of potential AHL call-ups (J.T. Miller, Danny Kristo) pining for an opportunity to play at the NHL level could be summoned to replace Benoit Pouliot in upcoming games this week.

Rangers' Pouliot Nets Game Winner

News: Benoit Pouliot scored the team's game-winner in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Islanders
Analysis: After enduring a eight game pointless drought to begin his career as a Ranger, Benoit Pouliot has two goals and an assist in his last three games. The 27-year-old winger has also compiled 25 penalty minutes in his 11 games played thus far. While he still remains outside of the fantasy perspective in most leagues, it behooves owners to keep an eye on the former fourth overall pick of the 2005 draft.

Pouliot Paces Rangers In Win

News: Benoit Pouliot collected a goal and a helper on Derick Brassard's game-winner in Saturday's 3-2 overtime win over Detroit.
Analysis: He also added two shots on goal and two penalty minutes. These were Benoit Pouliot's first two points in a Rangers uniform, so needless to say, he's been as disappointing as the rest of the team. Because of line-combination uncertainties in New York, keep him on your watch list, but we don't imagine he'll string many of these type of nights together.

Rangers' Pouliot Gets Misconduct

News: Benoit Pouliot got a boarding major and a game misconduct, totaling 15 penalty minutes, in Thursday's loss to Philadelphia.
Analysis: He got the boot after making contact with Max Talbot that sent Talbot headlong into the boards, and although it didn't look like a particularly bad hit, he'll likely get a call from Brendan Shanahan about it. Benoit Pouliot's been a massive disappointment in his first season as a Ranger, as he's provided zero points and a minus-3 rating through his first eight games of the year.

Pouliot Scores In Rangers' Win

News: Benoit Pouliot netted the game-winner in Tuesday's 3-2 preseason win over Philadelphia.
Analysis: Benoit Pouliot was a plus-2 with a blocked shot and one hit while logging just under 15-minutes of total ice time. It's certainly a good sign for the first year Blueshirt who was signed on the cheap. While the fourth overall pick (Minnesota) in 2005 is just 26-years-old and still has the potential to fulfill his original potential, he remains uninspiring from a fantasy perspective for now.

Rangers Sign Pouliot To One-Year Deal

News: Benoit Pouliot signed a one-year, $1.3 million contract with the Rangers on Friday, Renaud Lavoie of RDS.ca reports.
Analysis: Benoit Pouliot, the No. 4 overall pick back in 2005, will head to New York on a one-year deal, after notching 20 points (8G, 12A) and a plus-8 rating in 34 games for Tampa Bay last season. The Rangers are the fifth different NHL franchise to employ Pouliot, and the fourth in the past four years.
