Pouliot finished the season strong, racking up two goals and four points in his last three games. The 28-year-old registered 34 points, including four power-play goals, in 58 games on the season.

Pouliot sniped a pair of goals in Monday's 4-1 win over the visiting Maple Leafs.

Pouliot's quest for hockey's "Cy Young" award continues, as he's now up to 16 goals and just eight assists in 46 games this year. The 16 tallies actually tie his career high from 2011-12 with Boston, but the lack of helpers limits his value, even in deeper leagues. It is interesting, however, that he's managed to skate to a minus-1 (tied for the Oilers' lead) on one of the league's worst teams, especially since seven of his fellow forwards are a minus-11 or worse.
