Pulock was taken with the 15th overall pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. He had 17 goals and 29 points in 54 contests with the AHL Bridgeport Sound Tigers in 2014-15. Apr 24 - 11:02 AM

The New York Islanders might summon Ryan Pulock.

Ryan Pulock was back on the ice Friday after suffering a lower body injury.

He only practiced briefly with the team. Pulock was selected with the 15th pick in the 2013 Draft and has a shot to crack the lineup although a minor league stint will certainly aid in his growth as a defenseman. Pulock has a big shot and is reliable defensively so we can see the defenseman being a viable fantasy pick in a couple of years.

Defenseman Ryan Pulock has been impressive in training camp thus far.

The defenseman was taken with the 15th pick in the 2013 Draft and seemingly has passed 2012 first round pick Griffin Reinhart on the depth charts. "What I liked tonight is that he got involved in the offense," coach Jack Capuano said Friday. "There are a lot of guys that, when they get the puck on their stick, they want to make the safe play and a lot of times that's the right thing to do, but tonight he shot a lot of pucks and that's what we are looking for on our power play." Pulock had 23 goals and 40 assists with Brandon of the WHL. He should start the season in the AHL but he could break with the team. He is worth a late round pick in keeper leagues.

Pulock registered 14 goals and 45 points in 61 games for Brandon of the WHL this past campaign. He hopes to compete for an NHL job within a couple of seasons.

The Islanders have selected Ryan Pulock with the 15th overall pick of the amateur entry draft.

Pulock’s character alone makes him an NHL prospect. The fact that he contributes offensively, is reliable defensively and understands how to think and play the game makes him one of the best in this draft class. Pulock has an explosive shot and projects as an offensive defenseman as his 105 points in 132 WHL games over two seasons attests. What makes that point total even more impressive is that Pulock had little offensive support and battled multiple injuries last season. Although he’s not very flashy, physically intimidating or elite in his skating or puck moving abilities, his guts, tenacity and offence will be welcomed on the Islander blueline within the next two years.
