Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Kevin Poulin
Kevin Poulin was born on April 12, 1990 in Montreal, Quebec. A product of the Victoriaville Tigres of the Quebec major Junior League, he was selected in the fifth round of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft by the New York Islanders.

Poulin made his professional debut in the American Hockey League with Bridgeport Sounds Tigers during the 2010-11 season. An injury to Islanders' goaltender Rick DiPietro opened the door for Poulin's first glimpse at life in the NHL. On January 6, 2011, Poulin made his NHL debut, coming on in relief of starting goaltender Nathan Lawson in a loss against the Edmonton Oilers. He would make his first NHL start two nights later against the Colorado Avalanche.

On February 8, 2011, Poulin suffered a knee injury during pregame warm-up that eventually required season-ending surgery.

Poulin would spend the majority of his time with the Islanders' AHL affiliate, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. In 2014-15 he posted a 2.87 goals-against-average for the Sound Tigers to go along with a .912 save percentage.

On November 12, 2015, Poulin's time in the Islander organization would come to an end. He was traded to the Calgary Flames in exchange for future considerations.
