#Habs Poehling was re-assigned to Laval Rocket following tonight’s win.— John Lu (@JohnLuTSNMtl) November 13, 2019
Poehling was brought up after Jesperi Kotkaniemi was forced out of the lineup with a groin injury. Indications were that Kotkaniemi was nearing a return, and this move suggests the sophomore centre is ready to return to action at the end of the week.
Poehling didn’t record a point in the four NHL games he played in his stint, after netting a hat trick in his NHL debut in April. He returns to a Rocket team riding a six-game winning streak, and he will look to build upon the three goals and two assists he has in the minor league to help extend that run.
