Northstars sign dynamic D-man Felix Poulin
Tuesday, April 11, 2017 - Submitted by Peter Lambert

Felix-Antoine Poulin will join the Proski Newcastle Northstars for its 15th anniversary season in 2017.

The play-making Canadian is a graduate of the University of St. Thomas in St Paul, Minnesota.

He has two seasons of pro hockey behind him at the ECHL’s Alaska Aces and Scotland’s Dundee Stars, competing in the EIHL.

Northstars coach Andrew Petrie considers Poulin’s signing a major win from his recruitment drive over the Australian summer.

“I'm really looking forward to working with Felix,” Petrie said.

“He's been playing in the ECHL in North America and in the EIHL in the UK; two notoriously physical leagues.

“He handles that type of game with ease, competes hard and keeps his penalty minutes low everywhere he plays.”

At 188cm (6’2”) and 92kg, Poulin has both size and skill in his game.
He leads the EIHL in goals for all defencemen with 17, and 32 assists for 49 points across 52 games, worthy of second best in overall points.

Poulin’s success with the Dundee Stars has been acknowledged by the team’s media crew, awarded the “StarsTV Player of the Year”.

“Felix has good size, great mobility and vision and has an elite-level shot,” Petrie said.

“He's got a natural flair for jumping up into the offense and that's a recipe that works well in any league.”

Dundee is currently participating in the EIHL finals, the “EIHL Cup”.
Poulin’s availability will be determined by the success of the Dundee Stars.

The Northstars begin its 15th anniversary season in 2017 with the long road trip to Adelaide and then Perth, before catching the “red-eye” back home on Monday morning.
