Pittsburgh Penguins Prospect Derrick Pouliot’s One-Punch KO

Photo Credit: Pens prospect Derrick Pouliot isn’t known for having a mean streak and throwing his fists, but he found himself engaged in a fight last night and he held is own rather well. As the ref steps in to stop Pouliot and Joe Hickett’s fight, Victoria Royals player Steven Hodges sucker punches Pouliot in the back of the head; lighting a fire under the Pens...

Portland Winterhawks Dethrone Royals, Advance To The Next Round

From the start of the series, many felt Portland would hand it to Victoria, sweep the series and move onto Kelowna and go to the WHL Finals. It took a loss in game three to make fans realize that Victoria was going to be a tough one. When the Hawks won game four to split the series in Victoria, fans hoped that the team that had decimated the Royals in the first two games would be...

Pittsburgh A Good Fit For Ryan Kesler

from Ed Willes of the Vancouver Province, The troubling news for the faithful is Gillis seems intent on hitting a home run with Kesler. That means the proverbial roster player, prospect, first-round draft pick package which the team was seeking for Luongo, and we all know how that turned out. It doesn’t take a leap in logic to imagine the same script — as the noble Lui suggested...

Portland Winterhawks Taking Down Teams, Extend Winning Streak To 17

It's almost old hat: Winterhawks play, Winterhawks win. For seventeen straight games, that's what Winterhawks broadcaster Todd Vrooman has said and there seems to be no signs of letting up. The Hawks finished their road trip this past weekend with a pair of 7-4 wins over last place Kamloops Blazers and sixth place Vancouver Giants. During that weekend clash, Nic Petan overtook...

Portland Winterhawks Hit The Dirty Dozen

The Portland Winterhawks are on a tear within the Western Hockey League with their twelfth straight victory as the season winds down to its last 15 games. Since the trade deadline back on January 10, the Hawks haven't lost a game. Much of this can be attributed to having all the players back from tournaments and injury, but some will point to the addition to the defensive core...

Despite A Couple Of Rip Currents, Portland Winterhawks Still Making Waves Of Their Own

Leading up to Christmas, the Portland Winterhawks were fortunate or unfortunate in some people's minds, when 5 players headed to World Junior camps that took place in Malmo, Sweden in anticipation of the championship game into the new year. Oliver Bjorkstrand helped to move Denmark out of the relegation round and back into a contending team for next year, however, Layne Viveiros...

Portland Winterhawks Nesting Comfortably Atop The WHL

The Portland Winterhawks have done it again. After a lukewarm start to the season, the Hawks rang up 11 straight victories against some of the league's best teams and found themselves moving from the bottom to the top. Not only did they overtake Spokane and Seattle in the US Division, but they also took over sole possession of the WHL top spot in the process. It's the gelling...

Who Is Olli Maatta And Why Is He So Awesome? by @LCJS

Olli Maatta is a rookie. Taken by the Penguins with their 2nd pick (22nd overall) in the 1st round of the 2012 Entry Draft, one may think that Derrick Pouliot (8th overall) would be the player getting first crack at the NHL. Watching Maatta play, however, will quell that thought. Maatta could have been taken by the Pens in that 8th spot and nobody would have batted an eye...

Despite his age, Derrick Pouliot could be NHL ready. Penguins...

Penguins’ Defensive Prospects Nipping At Vet’s Heels For Roster Spots

Penguins' General Manager Ray Shero, or as we affectionately call him GMRS, has taken some heat in recent drafts for stockpiling defensive prospects and thereby bypassing forwards.  It's not an inaccurate criticism:  It's pretty clear to anyone who takes a look at the Penguins' minor league affiliates.  Their strength, without a doubt, is their plethora of defensive...

Sidney Crosby strong in Penguins' win over Blackhawks

Sidney Crosby looks ready for the real stuff. He flashed regular-season form — including a on-one-knee goal — in the Penguins' 4-3 shootout win over the Chicago Blackhawks in an exhibition game United Center on Thursday. Defenseman Derrick Pouliot and fellow center Joe Vitale joined Crosby as Penguins' scorers. Goalie Tomas Vokoun played the entire game and did not...

RECAP: Preseason Game 3: Pens look better, win.

Pens came out with a far better effort than they showed on Monday, and they were able to win despite blowing a 3-1 lead.  Who scored -- Derrick Pouliot played an expectional game in Chicago, all things considered. He wavered here and there, but it was all around great to see. He got the Pens on the board with a power-play goal. He won't make the team, nor should he,...

Sorry nothing of any real value to report on from the camp, Brady Skjei was a healthy scratch which in my eyes means...

Penguins’ young defensemen hope to stick around

Most professional sports teams refer to talented, young players in their organizations as prospects. The Penguins prefer the tag “assets,” and have treated them as such during the past five years, dangling several such players in trades. Do the future Penguins who gathered at this week's Prospect Camp feel like assets? So far, they haven't developed a complex. ...
