Kevin Poulin has been assigned to the minors.

He served as Michal Neuvirth's backup for the last two games, while Jaroslav Halak recovered from a lower-body injury. Halak is healthy again so Poulin will resume playing for Bridgeport in the AHL.
Mar 19 - 1:45 PM

Kevin Poulin has been called up by the New York Islanders.

Poulin will presumably serve as the backup goaltender on Tuesday as Jaroslav Halak is out with a lower-body injury. Poulin has a 2.82 GAA and .915 save percentage in 39 AHL contests in 2014-15.
Mar 17 - 2:36 PM

With Jaroslav Halak activated, the New York Islanders opted to send Kevin Poulin back to the AHL on Sunday.

Poulin allowed three goals on 26 shots as the Islanders blew a 3-0 lead and lost against the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday. In 50 career NHL games, the 24-year-old has a poor .899 save percentage.

Kevin Poulin made 23 saves as the Islanders came up short 4-3 in the shootout to the Sabres on Saturday night.

This one could’ve turned out differently with Jaroslav Halak in net. Poulin was called up Saturday morning and got the start over Chad Johnson with Halak dealing with a lower-body injury. The Islanders were leading 3-0 entering the third period. Then Poulin allowed three goals on six shots to essentially force extra time. He has a 3.07 goals-against average and .899 save percentage in 50 NHL starts in his career.

Updating a previous post, it will be Kevin Poulin in net for the Islanders and not Chad Johnson.

Poulin shut out Providence yesterday in AHL action as he made 34 saves. Adjust your lineup if necessary.

The New York Islanders have recalled Kevin Poulin from the minors.

Poulin played with Bridgeport last night and stopped all 34 shots in a 2-0 shutout over the Providence Bruins. He will back up Chad Johnson tonight.

The New York Islanders returned Kevin Poulin to the AHL Bridgeport Sound Tigers.

Poulin was called up on Tuesday because Jaroslav Halak was dealing with an undisclosed injury. Halak is presumably okay for Saturday's game, but if that proves to not be the case than Poulin will be brought back up.

Kevin Poulin has been summoned from the minors.

He will serve as Chad Johnson's backup on Tuesday night. Jaroslav Halak has been off for the past two days for "maintenance," but it sounds like he is dealing with an injury.

Kevin Poulin has agreed to a one-year, two-way contract with the New York Islanders.

Poulin comes with a $650,000 annual cap hit, but he'll technically only make $175,000 per season at the AHL level. We say technically because his contract comes with a guarantee that he'll earn no less than $275,000 annually, so he'll end up getting at least that amount even if he never gets called up to the Islanders.

Kevin Poulin has an arbitration hearing scheduled for July 30.

Poulin is coming off of a one-year, two-way contract that paid him $577,500 annually at the NHL level. He's not expected to make the Islanders' opening game roster.

Kevin Poulin has been loaned to AHL Bridgeport.

The Islanders want him to get more playing time in the minors. Anders Nilsson will back up Evgeni Nabokov for the time being instead.
Sat, Mar 1, 2014 12:37:00 PM

Kevin Poulin had a night to forget Monday as the Islanders dropped a 6-3 decision to Boston.

Poulin allowed six goals on 36 shots before he was lifted for Evgeni Nabokov with about 12 minutes to play in the third period. While he had a nice stretch of play in early January, the 23-year-old has shown of late why Nabokov will take on more playing time going forward.

Kevin Poulin made 32 stops on 35 shots in a 4-3 shootout loss to the St. Louis Blues on Saturday afternoon.

It was solid rebound effort from Poulin after he was shelled by Pittsburgh on Thursday. He's had some strong performances this month, but the 23-year-old is still learning what it takes to be a starter in the NHL. He will continue to get his chances while Evgeni Nabokov recovers from injury. Poulin has an 11-15-1 record along with an .894 save percentage and a 3.16 GAA.
Sat, Jan 25, 2014 04:43:00 PM

Kevin Poulin will not remember Thursday's 6-4 loss to Pittsburgh with fond memories.

Poulin allowed five goals on just 28 shots in the defeat, further dampening his stat line. He sports an 11-15-0 record that is accompanied by a 3.17 GAA and an .893 save percentage.
