Benoit Pouliot missed Monday's practice due to an undisclosed injury.

Pouliot sustained the injury during a drill on Sunday when he lost his balance and crashed into the boards. He's doubtful for Tuesday's contest.
Feb 14 - 5:44 AM

Benoit Pouliot has not scored in over two months, a span of 26 games.

It's not like he is racking up the points either as he has only four assists since December 8. He had only one goal in his previous 17 games previous to that as well and it is no wonder that he has only five goals and 10 points in 51 games after getting 36 points in 55 contests last season. Do not pick him up at this time.
Feb 12 - 9:10 AM

Benoit Pouliot has contributed a goal and an assist in his last two appearances.

He had one goal in his previous 17 outings and he was scratched for this past Tuesday's contest. It's probably too early to declare that he is turning it around, but this should provide him with some confidence.

Benoit Pouliot is a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Buffalo Sabres.

Pouliot has just one goal in his last 17 games. He served as a healthy scratch in November, but that didn't spark him. Anton Slepyshev and Dillon Simpson will also join him in the press box.

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.

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 for the third straight.

In 18 games, the winger has scored three times with four points on 21 shots on goal. He had not earned a point in the last 11 games. Mark Letestu and Eric Gryba will be healthy scratches as well.

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

Pouliot has been a huge disappointment this season. This will be his second straight game as a healthy scratch. The 30-year-old has just three goals and one assist in 18 games this season. Mark Letestu and Eric Gryba will also watch from the press box.

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.
Sat, Nov 19, 2016 01:11:00 PM

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.
Sun, Oct 23, 2016 12:38:00 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."
