The Pittsburgh Penguins have assigned defenseman Derrick Pouliot to the AHL’s Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins from the Portland Winterhawks of the Western Hockey League.

The Weyburn, Sask., native recorded nine goals, 36 assists and 60 penalty minutes in 44 games and added 20 points (4g, 16a) in 21 playoff games.

The eighth overall pick by Pittsburgh in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, Pouliot has totaled 135 points (25g, 110a) and 177 PIM in 189 contests and helped lead the Winterhawks to the WHL Final in 2011 and 2012. He has also compiled eight goals and 33 assists over 64 career postseason matches in the WHL.
