Poulin Accepts Qualifying Offer
Goaltender Played Five Games With Islanders Last Season

The New York Islanders announced today that Kevin Poulin has accepted his qualifying offer, which is a one-year, two-way contract.

Poulin, 23, appeared in five games with the Islanders last season after he was recalled from the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the American Hockey League on February 23. In 32 games with Bridgeport prior to his recall, the Montreal, QC, native posted a team-leading 15 wins with a 3.22 goals-against average (GAA) and .904 save percentage (SV%).

In 21 career games with the Islanders, Poulin has a 7-9-1 record with a 2.76 goals-against average and .912 save percentage. Poulin made his NHL postseason debut in 2013, appearing in two games during the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal round, posting a 1.15 GAA and .933 SV%. He’s also appeared in 96 regular-season games during his three-year professional career with Bridgeport, posting a 51-37-7 record.

The Islanders selected Poulin in the fifth round, 126th overall, of the 2008 NHL Draft. He played four years of major junior hockey with the Victoriaville Tigers of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League prior to his rookie season in Bridgeport in 2010-11.
