It is likely that Benoit Pouliot will be left unprotected when the Vegas Knights select players from all other NHL teams in the expansion draft on June 21st.
It remains to be seen if Knights' GM George McPhee will be tempted to draft Pouliot, however, as he has been an inconsistent performer for many seasons and has a deal that extends to the 2019-20 campaign with a $4 million per season cap hit. Jun 11 - 12:53 PM

Pouliot's goal was the start of what wound up being a 7-1 blowout win over Dallas. He recorded 33 goals and 70 points in 113 games in his previous two campaigns, but has been far less productive offensively in 2016-17 with six goals and 11 points in 54 games.

Benoit Pouliot (undisclosed) will return to the Oilers' lineup on Thursday.

This will be Pouliot's first game in roughly a month. He's projected to play alongside Zack Kassian and David Desharnais. Pouliot has struggled this season with five goals and 10 points in 51 games, but he's hoping to end the campaign on a positive note. "The whole year has been a struggle," Pouliot said. "It’s frustrating. I get down at times, but I stay positive as much as I can. There’s still time left, there a bunch of games left and playoffs are coming. It’s a time to redeem and get back to what I’m supposed to do."

Despite traveling with the team on their road trip, Benoit Pouliot won't play on Sunday against Nashville.

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

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.

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.
