Pulock (lower body) was activated from injured reserve and sent to AHL Bridgeport on Tuesday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.

With the stakes lower in the minors, Pulock can return to game action to see how he holds up following the injury. The 15th overall pick in the 2013 draft has only played in one NHL game this season, but the big-bodied defenseman carries plenty of offensive upside, having reached double-digit goal totals in three of four seasons with the WHL's Brandon Wheat Kings between 2010-14. He also picked up seven goals and 24 points in 51 games with Bridgeport last season.
