July 2022 – The Boston Bruins have selected Poitras in the second round of the 2022 NHL Draft, 54th overall. Nick Richard

December 2021 – Poitras is enjoying a solid rookie season in the OHL and sits inside the top-10 in league scoring among first-year draft-eligbles. His production, while respectable, doesn’t jump off the page but it’s the details in his game that make Poitras such an enticing prospect.

Poitras is a hard-working, offensively skilled forward who utilizes his quick hands and vision on both sides of the puck. He has all the requisite offensive tools; a strong release on his wrist shot, good vision and passing ability, and quick hands in traffic, but it’s the pro-level habits already present in his game that will help him excel at the next level. He protects the puck well on the cycle, takes great angles in pursuit, and consistently comes away with contested pucks. Poitras has a habit of baiting opposing players into poor decisions and jumping lanes at the perfect time, routinely capitalizing on mistakes by the other team. He makes strong reads off the puck and competes hard, laying out to block a shot or taking a hit to make a play. He may never put up huge point totals but Poitras does a lot of things well to create chances and drive play for his team. I think he has a pretty safe floor as a top-nine NHL forward and there is potential for him to become more than that. Nick Richard
