Derrick Pouliot, the eighth pick of the 2012 NHL Draft, was returned to his junior team, the Portland Winterhawks of the Western Hockey League.

They said, 'You're going to love the city. It's smaller than Philadelphia, but you're going to love it. You're going to love the fans. Just watching the playoffs last year, the fans seemed louder there than they did anywhere. I'm really excited about that.
