    I noticed he's not on the live boxscore over at the OHL website. Anyone know why he isn't playing tonight?

    I noticed this as well, wonder if hes hurt. Thats the likely scenario since he doesnt have any PIM hardly in the playoffs. Though whats his injury? Better not be something wussy haha.

    I believe it's the ever popular 'lower body injury'.

    He took a big hit in the last game where the other player was given a 5 minute major for kneeing. But he also took the brunt of the hit on the upper body. Could be just about anything.

    As someone stated, Pouliot got clobbered on a big hit in the previous game. The player delivering the hit was Peterborough's Bryan Young, who has been a very hard hitting defenceman since they allowed hitting in peewee. I used to coach minor hockey against Young and he was always famous for lowering the boom on people. It's correct he did get a five-minute major for that hit, but he played tonight so there was no suspension. Wolves' coach Mike Foligno, in calling for a suspension, indicated after the first game that Pouliot had suffered a "significant" injury. Whether it's a knee or the head, I don't know. In any case, Pouliot didn't play, Young did.

    its about time he got what is coming to him. he has been a rat all season long. spearing people and slashing and makes dirty hits all the time. i don't like it when anybody gets really hurt but when you ask for it all year like he has it is no surprise that somebody finally let him have it.

    As an aside, Kris Deines is injured for the Calgary Hitmen. Listed as out with a lower body injury.

    He has a cast on his hand.

    Interesting.... but then again, when his arm is at his side, his hand is in the lower half of his body!

    I'd swear you were Cam Maxwell from the Calgary Sun. He made that exact joke.

    It wasn't a published joke. It was a press box joke.
