    Islanders' Ryan Pulock: Could be called up shortly

    Pulock could be called up to the Islanders in the near future. The Isles have been hesitant to call up Pulock even though an argument could be made that he would've been a top six defensemen from the start of the season. However with injuries to Johnny Boychuk (shoulder) and Travis Hamonic (lower body) they may feel that they have no other options but to trust that he is ready for prime time. Fantasy owners will want to keep an eye on Pulock as his biggest asset is his ability to move the puck out of the defensive zone and his rocket shot from the point. He could be a boon to the Islanders power play should they trust him enough to play him on the top unit.

    Islanders' Ryan Pulock: Sent to AHL Bridgeport

    Pulock was sent to AHL Bridgeport on Tuesday, notching an assist in his minor league season debut, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports. Pulock is a blueliner with tons of offensive upside, but apparently the Islanders felt the need to let him bide his time in the lower ranks despite the team owning a minus-2 rating through the first three games. We're talking about a first-round draft talent, so it's recommended that you practice patience as Pulock has a bright future.

    Islanders' Ryan Pulock: Expected to be a healthy scratch Friday

    Pulock is expected to be a healthy scratch Friday, reports Newsday. This is a curious move by coach Jack Capuano. Why have your top defensive prospect with the team if you're not going to start him? We will give him the benefit of the doubt here, perhaps Capuano feels that opening night, first game in Brooklyn, is to much for the youngster to handle, but if this becomes a habit than Capuano will once again have a lot of explaining to do with how he handles his young players.

  • Will start the season with the Islanders

    News: Ryan Pulock will start the season with the Islanders, reports Islanders Point Blank.
    Analysis: Ryan Pulock takes the spot of the injured Thomas Hickey. The question will be will he start or be the seventh defenseman. On the surface it wouldn't make much sense to have your top defensive prospect sit in the press box but as any Islander fan can tell you, coach Jack Capuano seems to have an unhealthy love for Brian Strait.
  • Still unlikely to begin season with the Islanders

    News: The injury to Thomas Hickey (upper body) doesn't necessarily mean that Ryan Pulock will open the season with the team, according to Newsday.
    Analysis: The problem for Ryan Pulock is that Hickey plays the left side and Pulock does not. Will the Isles allow their prized prospect to play the wrong side? This would seem unlikely.
  • Isles' Pulock To Compete For Sixth Spot On Defense

    News: Ryan Pulock is expected to compete with Scott Mayfield for the Islanders' sixth defenseman spot during training camp, Newsday's Arthur Staple reports.
    Analysis: Ryan Pulock has been one of hockey's top defensive prospects for a couple years now, and is coming off a fairly impressive first season at AHL Bridgeport, during which he compiled 17 goals and 29 points in 54 games. That performance earned Pulock a promotion to the Isles during the playoffs, but it was the less heralded Mayfield who actually entered the lineup ahead of him, as he skated in Games 6 and 7 of the team's first-round series loss to the Capitals. Mayfield offers a more defensive-minded skill set than Pulock, but the latter's far superior scoring ability makes him the more intriguing target for fantasy purposes. That said, Pulock's value will remain relegated to dynasty or keeper formats if the Islanders coaching staff determines that Mayfield is the better fit for the Opening Night roster.
  • Isles' Pulock Could Make Team As A PP Specialist

    News: Ryan Pulock's best chance to make the Islanders out of training camp could be as the point man on the power play, according to SNY.tv.
    Analysis: The Islanders took a doughnut on the power play versus the Capitals in the playoffs and the PP also wasn't up to par during the final weeks of the regular season. One of Ryan Pulock's best attributes is his cannon of a shot from the point, something the Islanders could desperately use, especially if Lubomir Visnovsky decides to retire.
  • Islanders' Pulock Out Saturday

    News: Ryan Pulock is not in the Islanders' lineup Saturday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
    Analysis: There had been some indication that Ryan Pulock could be in the Islanders' lineup for Game 6 after a glut of injuries along their blue line, but that won't be the case Saturday. Pulock could be available should the Islanders extend their series to Game 7.
  • Isles' Pulock Could Play In Game 6

    News: Ryan Pulock could be in the lineup for Game 6 versus the Capitals, reports Newsday.
    Analysis: Islanders defensemen are dropping like flies, as they may have lost Calvin de Haan (undisclosed) to an injury in Game 5. Ryan Pulock would seem to be next in line for the Islanders, and he could make his playoff debut in an elimination game Saturday. No pressure.
  • Isles' Pulock To Warm Up, But Not Likely To Play

    News: Ryan Pulock will participate in warmups with the Islanders on Thursday, but isn't expected to play in Game 5 against the Capitals, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.
    Analysis: Ryan Pulock was one of several players the Islanders recalled from Bridgeport after the AHL club concluded its season over the previous weekend. While the majority of those call-ups won't merit lineup consideration, as a well-regarded blue-line prospect, Pulock might represent the lone exception. With Lubomir Visnovsky unavailable for Game 5, coach Jack Capuano will have both Pulock and Griffin Reinhart participate in warmups, but since Pulock was on the ice with the extras following morning skate, it appears likely that Reinhart will draw in on the Isles' third pairing. However, if Reinhart struggles Thursday and Visnovsky is also ruled out for Game 6, it wouldn't be surprising to see the youthful Pulock enter the lineup at that time.
