Benoit Pouliot Autographed Card

After posting just 19 points for the last-place Buffalo Sabres in 2017-18, it's really no surprise that Benoît Pouliot couldn't find employment in the NHL this year; what's somewhat puzzling is that he couldn't find work in Europe, perhaps in Switzerland, France or even in the KHL.

Many pundits decried - with reason - when he signed a five-year, $20M deal with the Edmonton Oilers in the summer of 2014, but after displaying some decent possession stats with the New York Rangers the previous season, he posted career-highs in Edmonton:

It just went downhill from there because of injuries.

He signed a couple of cards for me last season, including this one, #71 in Upper Deck's 2015-16 Series 1 set:
This slots him perfectly as #67 in my Oilers Numbers Project.
