Emile Poirier had to wait until Nov. 1 to get into his first game of the 2014-15 campaign but the winger made his debut count.
Poirier potted two goals in a tight 5-4 setback to the Utica Comets on Saturday, sparking a valiant comeback attempt from the Flames.
In the first period, he got the Flames on the board at 14:38 and cut the Comets lead in half. In the second stanza, he added his second goal of the game at 4:29 mark, pulling Adirondack within a pair of goals and giving Adirondack a boost of confidence as they battled back from the early deficit.
The Montreal, QC native was held out of action as he recovered from off-season shoulder surgery.
In three career AHL games, Poirier has amassed four goals and six points while tossing nine shots on net.
Last season, he rattled off 43 goals and 87 points through 63 games with the Gatineau Olympiques in the QMJHL.
The 19-year-old was selected in the first round (22nd overall) of the 2013 NHL Draft.
