The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed their 2019 first-round draft pick, Sam Poulin, to a three-year, entry-level contract, the team announced Sunday.

Poulin ⁠— an 18-year-old forward from Blainville, Que., ⁠— was selected 21st overall at June’s draft in Vancouver.

“Sam is a good, young forward whose style is hard to play against,” said Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford in a press release. “He has had a good training camp and we’re happy to get him signed, and look forward to watching his development.”

Poulin has suited up in two pre-season games for Pittsburgh so far.

The six-foot-one, 212-pound Poulin led the QMJHL’s Sherbrooke Phoenix with 29 goals, 47 assists and 76 points in 67 games last season.
