Ryan Pulock was a force on the power play Saturday with a goal and an assist.
It was Pulock's third game of the season as he has been a healthy scratch for eight games. He is up to a goal and three points and that's not too shabby for a blueliner. We guess he will be back in the lineup Monday against Vegas with a performance like Saturday's under his belt. Oct 29 - 8:32 AM

Look for Ryan Pulock to draw into the Islanders' lineup against the Predators Saturday night.

He was a healthy scratch Thursday against Minnesota, but Islander coach Doug Weight seems to have decided to dress Pulock Saturday night. He may even get some ice time on the Islanders' second power play. At this point we are not sure which defenseman will sit out to accommodate Pulock.

Ryan Pulock will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against Minnesota.

Pulock has only skated in two games this season, but he's managed to collect an assist. Fellow blue liner Dennis Seidenberg will also serve as a healthy scratch in this one.

Ryan Pulock will draw into the Islanders' lineup on Thursday.

Pulock is drawing into the lineup after being a healthy scratch for six straight games. The hope is that he might be able to contribute offensively, especially given that the Islanders haven't gotten a goal from their defensemen yet this season. He's also projected to play on the top power-play unit, which is 0-for-20 so far. In other words, this is a big opportunity for him. Nikolay Kulemin is expected to be scratched with the Islanders dressing seven defensemen.

Ryan Pulock was a healthy scratch for the fifth straight time Sunday.

The defenseman has yet to play this season. He had 15 goals and 46 points in 55 AHL games last season but he is of no fantasy value at this time.

Ryan Pulock is projected to be a healthy scratch on Friday.

Pulock had 15 goals and 46 points in 55 AHL contests last season. He might have some fantasy value if he plays regularly, but obviously him being scratched for the season opener isn't encouraging.

Ryan Pulock is one of the defensemen batting for a top-four spot on the Islanders blue line.

Pulock is in a battle with Adam Pelech and Scott Mayfield. Pulock, 22, has a booming shot from the point, but his overall game still needs some work. "They’re friends, but it’s a competition," Weight said. "Each of them should come in every day saying, ‘I’m taking his job.’ That’s the way the world is. I need Ryan to come in and say, ‘It’s my puck, it’s my power play, it’s my job.’ I want him up the ice. I want Pelly up the ice. I want Mayf mean." Pulock played in one NHL game last season, but he had 15 goals and 46 points in 55 AHL games last season. He could have fantasy value if he earns that top-four spot.

The New York Islanders have protected five defensemen as part of their eight skaters.

The Islanders protected Johnny Boychuk, Nick Leddy, Travis Hamonic, Adam Pelech and Ryan Pulock as well as John Tavares, Andrew Ladd and Anders Lee up front with Thomas Greiss in net. That means that Ryan Strome is available as well as Brock Nelson for the Golden Knights.

The defenseman scored three times and added a trio of assists for the Islanders farm team in Bridgeport. He was also a plus-six. Pulock has 10 goals and 22 points in 27 games in the AHL.

Ryan Pulock (broken foot) has been skating but is not close to returning to action.

Pulock is with the Islanders as they embark on a California road trip but will continue to get in some conditioning without playing as he closes in on a return. He was injured in his first game back from the minors so he has no stats this season.

Ryan Pulock could be recalled to the Islanders this week.

The Islanders are currently carrying six blueliners and that is a very risky proposition these days. He was sent to the minors this past week as he still had options available to the Islanders. Pulock has no real fantasy value at this time. He was selected 15th overall in the 2013 Draft.
