Observations:

May 2017 – As a 17-year-old playing NCAA hockey at St. Cloud State with his two older brothers against much older players, Poehling acquitted himself well but saw limited ice time. He bookended his decent rookie NCAA season with two strong international showings with USA at the Hlinka and U-18 tournaments against the elite players in his own age group and was excellent.

Poehling is a versatile forward; a play a two way game and has a well-balanced game. He is a good skater with quick acceleration, has good size and is strong on the puck. He has offensive vision and can make plays as well as bury scoring chances. A well rounded player that does everything well, but isn’t great at anything.  Peter Harling
