Observations

April 2019 – Poehling certainly garnered a lot of attention following a stellar performance at the IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship this year. He led all North American skaters with five goals and eight points in seven games. Poehling made another huge splash playing in the final game for the Montreal Canadiens this campaign. In his NHL debut, he scored a hat trick followed by a goal in the shootout. Keep him on your fantasy radar as there is a lot to be excited about regarding the Habs’ future forward. Jesse Sherman

June 2018 – Poehling had himself a terrific sophomore season. He became a leader for St. Cloud State, dominating the NCAA at even-strength, and represented the USA at the World Junior Championships. Still very young and raw, Poehling will continue to develop at the college level and look to become stronger and more explosive before the option to turn pro presents itself at seasons end. He is well on the path to becoming the big center the Canadiens have been sorely lacking for seemingly forever. Mike Barrett

May 2017 – As a 17-year-old playing NCAA hockey at St. Cloud State with his two older brothers against much older players, Poehling acquitted himself well but saw limited ice time. He bookended his decent rookie NCAA season with two strong international showings with USA at the Hlinka and U-18 tournaments against the elite players in his own age group and was excellent.

Poehling is a versatile forward; a play a two way game and has a well-balanced game. He is a good skater with quick acceleration, has good size and is strong on the puck. He has offensive vision and can make plays as well as bury scoring chances. A well rounded player that does everything well, but isn’t great at anything.  Peter Harling
