New York Islanders‘ 1st round pick in the 2013 draft (#15 overall) rookie defenseman Ryan Pulock(6) is having himself the kind of season with minor league affiliate Bridgeport Sound Tigers that he was setting up in four years of junior hockey with Brandon Wheat Kings.
He spent his last two years as team captain scoring 23 goals in 66 WHL games and also averaged over 36 assist in each campaign.
The 6’1 220 lbs. blue liner continues his scoring streak as he has a team leading d-man goal mark of 15 on the farm club and 28 points to lead all first year players in scoring.
He was an emergency recall on one occasion but has yet to skate an NHL game.
The still super young 20-year suffered an injury during training camp that sidetracked him some but is under an entry level contract through 2016/2017, so has time to continue his already pretty speedy development and will likely compete for a roster spot out of the next training camp.
