Oilers bring Vic Poole Award Winner for 2023-24 campaign

TULSA, Okla. —The Tulsa Oilers, proud ECHL affiliate of the NHL’s Anaheim Ducks and the AHL’s San Diego Gulls, announced Friday the signing of forward Tyler Poulsen, making the returning Oiler the first announced signing of the 2023-24 season.

Poulsen, 30, returns for his second full season in Tulsa, having joined the Oilers ahead of the 2022 playoffs.

A hard-working and productive winger, Poulsen led all Oilers’ contracts in assists last season, totaling a career-high 40 points (10G, 30A) in 66 contests. Poulsen also led all Oilers with 185 shots on goal last campaign.  The right-handed shot boasts 107 points (47G, 60A) in 216 career ECHL games with Allen, Rapid City, Worcester and Tulsa.

“We are really excited to have Poulsen back,” said head coach Rob Murray of the first official signing. “He’s a tough and determined player that brings offensive upside as well. He gives it full effort every night and adds right-hand shot to the forward group. He can bring some versatility, playing on the power play and penalty kill while bringing both speed and grit.”

The Arvada, Colo. Native developed at the University of Alabama-Huntsville, finishing first in assists (17) and second in points (26) during the 2017-18 season.

Poulsen played his junior hockey in the NAHL, compiling 156 points (74, 82) in 219 games with Kenai River, Aberdeen, Odessa and Topeka. Poulsen was selected to the NAHL’s First All-Star Team in 2013-14.

The 5’8, 181 lbs. winger capped last season as the 2022-23 Vic Poole “Never Give Up Award” winner, presented to the Oiler who most embodies the never relentless spirit of the late Vic Poole in his battle against ALS.

The Oilers will play two preseason games in 2023. Starting on the road against the Allen Americans at Nytex Sports Centre in North Richland Hills, Texas at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 13. The Oilers return to Tulsa on Saturday, Oct. 14 at 7:05 p.m. at the Oilers Ice Center, hosting the Americans in the second game of a home-and-home series.

Tulsa opens its season on the road on Saturday, Oct. 21 in West Valley City, Utah at 8:10 p.m. CT against the Utah Grizzlies. The Oilers return home for their home opener on Saturday, Oct. 28, hosting the Cincinnati Cyclones for an inter-divisional battle at the BOK Center at 7:05 p.m.
