Junior career

Pouliot spent his junior career with the Rimouski Océanic of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL). In addition to playing for Canada's under-18 team in 2003, he spent two seasons as the captain of the Océanic. His final junior year was spent on a line with Sidney Crosby. Although naturally a centre, Pouliot switched to left-wing to allow Crosby to play his natural position.

Professional career

After a relatively successful training camp with the Oilers, Pouliot was assigned to the Hamilton Bulldogs of the American Hockey League (AHL) where he made his professional debut. The Edmonton Oilers called him up to their team on March 13, 2006 and Pouliot was set to play on March 18, 2006 against the Red Wings, but was scratched when forward Ethan Moreau returned from a sprained ankle. He played just over 10 minutes in his first NHL game on March 30, 2006 with the Oilers against the Los Angeles Kings. He scored his first NHL goal four nights later on April 3 in Edmonton vs. the Phoenix Coyotes.

Splitting time between the Wilkes-Barre Penguins and the Oilers during the 2006-07 campaign, Pouliot scored four goals with seven assists for the Oilers. He would then split time with the Oilers and the Springfield Falcons during the 2007-08 campaign. In his first full season with the Oilers, Pouliot appeared in 63 games, recording 20 points.
