A decent skater with an above-average top gear, Poulin has long strides but he has trouble accelerating in tight spaces. However, he can beat defenders wide once he’s given open ice and has the speed to be considered a threat coming across the offensive blue line. His stops, first steps and turns in control of the puck are very aesthetic and quick. Knowing he’s got speed and strength, he loves to dump the puck deep to recover it. He is very good at handling the puck with speed and is a complete power forward. He has a great control of the puck with one hand, which allows him to protect his puck very effectively. He’s aggressive offensively and can lead the rush by carrying the puck into the offensive zone and set up possession. Never one to shy away from board battles, he will go to the corners and usually comes out with the puck. He is responsible defensively and puts in the necessary effort to stop plays down low. He’s patient in his own zone and watches the play so he can be at the right position, at the right time to create turnovers. Also very active once his team regains possession of the puck, he makes himself an immediate option to complete the zone exit. His work ethic is elite and he’s a tenacious, hardworking forward who doesn’t take a shift off.
