Pittsburgh coach Mike Johnston knows Penguins prospect Derrick Pouliot well from their days with the WHL's Portland Winterhawks.
He played four-plus years for Johnston in Portland and the new Pittsburgh bench boss believes Pouliot is ready for the NHL. "Not only his play in Portland, but the thing that convinced me the most was last year at the World Juniors," said Johnston. "I really thought Derrick was the best defenseman in the tournament. If you can play at that level on the world stage, yeah, you're ready." It's still unclear when Pouliot will be able to return from surgery on his right shoulder. He underwent the procedure on May 21 and his timetable was set at four to six months. The 20-year-old blueliner wants to be ready for training camp, but he'll probably miss the start of the season unless his recovery gets fast-tracked. Aug 29 - 11:18 AM
