Pulock hasn't registered a point since Oct. 28 in Nashville.

The Islanders are bringing Pulock along slowly, as he's been a healthy scratch for five of the team's last 16 games. New York travels with eight defenders and this forces coach Doug Weight to sit two for each game, with Pulock always in consideration to be one of the guys riding the pine. His main asset is a rocket shot from the point, but problems in the defensive zone have limited his ice time. This situation may not improve until the Islanders make a transaction involving one of those defenders.
