March 2020 – Poehling has split his first professional year between the NHL and the AHL. He has struggled to produce in both leagues putting up 13 points in 36 AHL games and an unimpressive 2 points in 27 NHL games. Outside of his production issues in the NHL Poehling has not been a liability on the ice, he has a 50.1 CF% being on the ice for almost the exact amount of shot attempts for and against.
In the AHL he has had offensive flashes as he put up 4 game point streak early in the season, as well as 6 points in the 5 games leading up to his 2nd call-up. However, this is where there is cause for concern, in the rest of the games this season he has 4 points in 27 games. He has most recently been playing top 6 minutes for the Rockets. In a recent interview with La Presse, Montreal general manager Marc Bergevin said that the organization does not view Ryan Poehling has a future potential top-6 center. Pablo Ruiz
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
