Derrick Pouliot feels his play towards the end of the AHL campaign showed that he's worked out his defensive shortcomings.
Pouliot has always had plenty of offensive talent, but his defensive game has left something to be desired. He was plus-12 in his final 24 contests with Wilkes-Barre in 2016-17 though. "For me to establish myself as an NHL defenseman, a regular guy in the lineup, it's kind of playing how I ended the season: solid defensively, consistent in that regard," Pouliot said. "That's been one thing that's always been brought up about me, inconsistency. So I think it's starting with that and building each game." This will be a key season for him, especially after inking a one-way, $800,000 contract with Pittsburgh. While it won't be easy for him to secure a spot with the Penguins, the possibility exists for the 23-year-old. Jul 14 - 4:48 AM
