Benoit Pouliot has finally exited his personal points desert.
Oct. 26th, or 14 games ago for him, was the last time Pouliot registered a point let alone a goal. Tonight he had a goal, giving him four markers and five points on the season. Hopefully this is just the beginning of a turnaround for the former first round pick. Dec 2 - 2:43 AM

Benoit Pouliot extended his pointless streak to 13 games Sunday.

Well at least he is shooting as Pouliot had five shots on goal. Pouliot started the season off well with three goals and four points but things have obviously not been going his way of late.

Benoit Pouliot returned to the lineup on Friday night.

He was a healthy scratch for the Oilers' previous three games. Pouliot joined a line with Leon Draisaitl and Drake Caggiula against Arizona. He didn't do anything of note statistically in 14:28 of ice time. Pouliot hasn't posted a point in his last 12 appearances.

Benoit Pouliot will be a healthy scratch in Monday's tilt against the Blackhawks.

Benoit Pouliot will be scratched against Dallas on Saturday night.

Pouliot has just four points in 18 games this season, and none over his last dozen games. He's taken just a dozen shots in that time as well, suggesting his cold streak runs deeper than some bad puck luck.

Benoit Pouliot hasn't recorded a point in his last 10 games.

Pouliot recorded between 34 and 36 points in each of his last three seasons, but he only participated in 58 and 55 contests in 2014-15 and 2015-16 respectively. He does have the potential to surpass the 40-point mark, but for him to do that this season he'll need to start heating up in the not too distant future. As it is he has just four points in 17 games.

Benoit Pouliot scored twice in the first period of the Edmonton Oilers 4-1 victory over the Washington Capitals Wednesday night.

Pouliot drew first blood at the 7:48 minute mark and got the game winner at 17:08. This brings Pouliot’s total to three goals for the season after he scored one of two in the October 16th loss to the Sabres. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins had assists on both goals, which elevates him to four assists for the season.

Benoit Pouliot will play in his fourth outdoor game and second Heritage Classic on Sunday.

He's off to a disappointing start this season with five shots, a goal, and 12 PIMs through five games, but maybe the former first round pick has some magic to share in today's special event.

Benoit Pouliot will not be a healthy scratch on Tuesday.

The reason why that needs to be stated is because Pouliot was benched for a period on Friday and two periods during Sunday's contest. The reason why he's been used so sparingly is because he's been taking bad penalties, which Pouliot understands. "I knew when I got the second penalty I wasn’t playing again," said Pouliot. "He tried to send me a message in Calgary, then I do that again yesterday (Sunday). It’s my problem, my fault. I knew it was coming."

Benoit Pouliot was benched in Sunday's loss to Buffalo.

He scored Edmonton's first goal of the match, but saw only nine shifts for 4:34 of ice time in the contest. "It's my problem, my fault," said Pouliot. "I knew (getting benched) was coming. I'll learn from it and improve." He leads the league with six minor penalties after three games and needs to play more disciplined positional hockey.

Benoit Pouliot is going to be out long-term with a shoulder injury.

"Still long term. Shoulder injury, not day-to-day, and he's got to see some doctors and have some tests to figure out what long term really is," said coach Todd McLellan. "He won't play for a little while for sure." The Oilers will need to fill his spot on a line with Connor McDavid, but the coach wouldn't say what he has in store yet.

Benoit Pouliot registered an assist in Edmonton's 5-2 loss to Minnesota Thursday night.

Feb 19 - 11:12 AM

Benoit Pouliot wasn't going to let Connor McDavid and Jordan Eberle steal all the spotlight in Thursday's 5-2 win over Toronto.

No, the former fourth overall pick in 2005 out of Alfred, Ontario picked up a quartet of assists of his own. Split among his premier linemates, of course. Pouliot is now up to 20 assists and 32 points in 47 games this season.
