Notes:
Canadian defenseman is the 12th-ranked North American skater by NHL Central Scouting and is the eighth-rated blueliner on that list...In 72 games with the Portland Winterhawks of the WHL in 2011-12, Pouliot posted 59 points (11G, 48A) and finished second among the team's defensemen in scoring...Added three goals and 17 points in 22 playoff games for Portland...Is a bit undersized at 5-foot-11, 190 pounds, but he is considered by scouts to be a superb puck mover and a speedy skater...Needs to work on his play in the defensive zone.
