Pouliot was on TSN and said:
- Why EDM, "just overall, the way their team is going, the way they have the young guys going, it's a good opportunity to me and staying in Canada was a big part of the decision."
- On going team to team, "Term was most important and I wanted to be stable somewhere where I could know I would be year after year. It's not easy not knowing with the one-year deals and I want to be set and it was an offer where I didn't think twice and I was really happy."
