Kevin Poulin - 1st NHL Start

The Isles have announced that Kevin Poulin will make his first NHL start on
Saturday afternoon in Colorado.

Poulin will become the youngest Islander to start a game since Rick DiPietro
faced Boston on Apirl 7, 2001. DiPietro was 19 years, 200 days. Poulin is 20
years, 271 days. Di Pietro appeared in 20 games as a 19 year old

Eric Fichaud, Mark Fitzpatrick and Roberto Luongo all made their Islander debuts
at a younger age than Poulin.

Poulin won't be the youngest Islander on the ice -- he's a few months older than
both Travis Hamonic and John Tavares.


Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home
telecasts since 1982. Visit my blog: forever1940.blogspot.com and follow me on
