While the NHL is in the heavy lull of its offseason following a season that was paused due to the Coronavirus pandemic, not all in the hockey world is at a halt.
In Red Deer, AB, Team Canada is holding a four-week training camp bubble in advance of the upcoming 2021 World Junior Championships, which will be held in Red Deer and Edmonton.
Among the players participating in the camp for Team Canada is Penguins winger Samuel Poulin, who the team drafted in the first round in 2019.
Earlier this week, Poulin put on quite a show, showing off some nice hands and skills while scoring a goal during camp.

For the Penguins to keep their ‘rebuild on the fly’ mentality going, they will need players like Samuel Poulin to hit the ground running in development in progressing to the NHL level.
It’s obvious to say the least the team’s prospect pool isn’t exactly overflowing, so Poulin developing quickly would be very beneficial.
