The Georgia Swarm kicked off free agency by re-signing UFA goalie Mike Poulin to a three-year deal. Georgia offered Poulin the Franchise Tag a few weeks ago, but he rejected and opted to sign at the start of free agency. This is the second time in a row that Poulin has signed a three-year deal.
Poulin has been with the Swarm since the 2017 season, and has been a vital part of the Swarm defense, including two rips to the NLL Finals and an NLL Championship in 2017. Prior to his time in Georgia, Poulin spent time in Calgary, Boston, and Toronto.
A 14-year veteran, Poulin sits seventh all-time in career saves with 5,236. He has a career total of 11.45 GAA and .770 SV% thus far. In addition, He has logged 8208:50 career minutes.
Last season, Poulin made 621 saves with a .791 save percentage, helping to lead the Swarm to their third-straight NLL playoff appearance.
Mike Poulin is the second goalie to re-sign with the Swarm this offseason. Backup goalie Kevin Orleman signed a one-year deal with the franchise earlier this week.
