Pittsburgh Penguins 2019 first round draft pick Samuel Poulin spoke to the media moments after being drafted. He had “a pretty good feeling” the Penguins would take him after he had dinner with the Penguins staff. Poulin is a 6-foot-1, 208 power forward with some talent and a nose for the net. He estimated he will be in the NHL in “2-3 years is the logical answer.”
The Penguins held onto their first round pick for the first time since 2014. Poulin is the captain of the Sherbrooke Phoenix in the QMJHL.
