Vancouver Canucks

The Canucks have acquired Derrick Pouliot from the Penguins for Andrey Pedan and a 2018 fourth-round pick.

Pouliot was the No.8 overall pick in the 2012 NHL Draft, but has yet to reach his full potential in Pittsburgh. The 23-year-old defenseman split last season between the NHL and AHL, recording 23 points (7G / 16A) in 46 games with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and no points in 11 games with the Penguins. The rebuilding Canucks can take a chance on the young blueliner, who likely won’t crack the top-6 to open the season.

The Penguins have recalled Derrick Pouliot from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (AHL).

Pouliot has spent the majority of the year with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, where he has registered five goals and nine assists (14 points) in 32 games this season. The 23-year-old had 14 points (2G / 12A) in 63 career NHL games and could be in the lineup on Wednesday because the Penguins are dealing with a multitude of injuries on the back-end.

The Penguins have assigned Derrick Pouliot to Wikes-Barre/Scranton (AHL).

Pouliot was expected to make the Penguins opening roster after having a strong 2014-15 season at both levels. However, he had a bad preseason and the Penguins have elected to have him start 2015-16 in the AHL. He had 24 points (7G / 17A) in 31 games with WBS last season—if he plays like that this year, he will work his way back into the NHL.
