Samuel Poulin had an impressive sophomore season with the Sherbrooke Phoenix, finishing with 29 goals and 76 points in 67 games. That performance came on the heels of his play with Team Canada at the 2018 Hlinka Gretzky Cup where he was a part of the gold medal winning squad.

The 18-year-old left-wing describes himself as a power forward who can both score and make plays. The physical element is a big part of his game, one that he models after Pierre-Luc Dubois (Blainville-Boisbriand Armada) and Gabriel Landeskog (Kitchener Rangers). The product of Blainville, Que., enjoys how both players are able to mix size with skill. This summer, Poulin’s goal is to improve his skating in order to help him compete at the next level. Poulin is the 22nd-ranked North American skater in NHL Central Scouting’s Final Draft Rankings.

“Good size, projects to play up and down the lineup,” writes Sportsnet’s Sam Cosentino. “Could use some polish in terms of finishing ability. NHL bloodlines from father Patrick (are) always a plus.”
