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. Oct 23 - 12:38 PM

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 sustained a shoulder injury on Sunday against the New York Islanders.

There is some concern that he could be sidelined for the rest of the season. He is being listed as more than day-to-day right now by the team.

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

Pouliot has recorded at least a point in four of his last five games. That's brought him up to 13 goals and 34 points in 50 contests in 2015-16.
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.
Feb 12 - 12:10 AM

Sunday's 8-1 loss to the New York Islanders was embarrassing for the Edmonton Oilers.

"It wasn't easy, that’s for sure," said winger Benoit Pouliot. "They got those quick goals back to back and we looked down a little bit and kind of went on a free fall. It sucks, it's tough allowing so many goals like that." The Oilers had a players-only meeting after an ugly weekend that also saw them get blown out by Montreal on Saturday.
Feb 8 - 10:07 AM

Benoit Pouliot scored a goal in a 5-1 loss to the Habs on Saturday.

His short-handed goal was his 12th goal of the season and his seventh point in his last seven games. He is a solid complementary player but remains too inconsistent to trust on an every games basis. The only advice we can give is to ride him while he is hot.
Feb 6 - 4:59 PM

Benoit Pouliot was on his bum when he picked up his ninth goal of the season during Friday's 3-2 loss to Tampa Bay on Friday night.

This one had a dirty kind of pretty to it as Pouliot showed exactly why you never give up on a play. He now has points in three of his last five with four points in that span, and 18 overall.
Jan 8 - 11:55 PM

Benoit Pouliot picked up two assists Saturday and is becoming fantasy relevant.

Pouliot has three goals and five points in his last four games and now has eight goals and 17 points this season. The good news is that he is now playing with Jordan Eberle and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and that can't hurt his value. He is a minus-nine but the Oilers are coming on and are becoming a half-decent team.
Jan 3 - 9:31 AM

For a second straight game, Benoit Pouliot scored in an Oilers' loss.

Pouliot has three goals in two games now and has 15 points in 29 games. He's about on pace for his regular average of 15-18 goals and 30-35 points in a season. Mark Letestu scored the other goal for the Oilers. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle both picked up assists in the losing effort.

Benoit Pouliot scored the opening two goals of the game in a 5-3 loss to the Flames.

The former fourth overall pick, has settled into a 30-40 point forward. He is on pace for 36 points this season.

Benoit Pouliot (lower body) will return to Edmonton's lineup on Saturday.

He will be healthy enough to take on the Avalanche. The injury kept Pouliot out of the lineup for eight straight games. The 29-year-old has five goals and 12 points this season. He'll play on a line with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle tonight.
Sat, Dec 19, 2015 02:13:00 PM

Benoit Pouliot (lower body) practiced Friday and could be good to go on Saturday.

Pouliot was injured at the beginning of December and has not played since. He has 12 points in 24 games this season. Pouliot is on the injured reserve list so the Oilers would have to make a move before the veteran can rejoin the club.
