Pulock could be the next Islanders player to receive a significant contract extension, Arthur Staple of the Athletic reports.
Pulock had his best season to date for the Isles last year, posting nine goals, 28 assists and a plus-21 rating in 82 games. Like most of the other defensemen on the Isles, Pulock excelled under the leadership of coach Barry Trotz. The 24-year-old may not be a top fantasy defender, but he has decent offensive upside, and you could certainly do worse in the late rounds of your draft.
Pulock had one point, an assist, and a rating of plus-3 as the Islanders swept the Penguins in Round 1.
Pulock had a solid regular season with nine goals, 28 assists and a rating of plus-21 in 82 games. The Isles would like to see him take that next step in the playoffs, as he possesses a cannon for a shot and can score from anywhere inside the blue line. While adding more to his offensive game would be a plus for the team, maintaining his strong play in the defensive zone is probably what's most important as the postseason continues.
Pulock had three assists in Thursday's 5-4 win over Winnipeg.
Pulock was expected to take a solid step forward this season, but it's been more of a baby step. Yes, his 36 points are a career mark. But he had just a goal and an assist in 14 games in March before this three-point outburst. Pulock's big step forward will have to wait until next year (or the year after).
Pulock scored his eighth goal of the season in Monday's 2-0 win over the Blue Jackets.
The first-period tally not only proved to be the game-winner, it also gave Pulock a career-high 33 points (eight goals, 25 helpers) on the season. The 24-year-old is in his second full NHL campaign, but he's emerging as a dependable two-way defenseman for the surprising Islanders.
Pulock scored his seventh goal of the season in a 4-0 win over the Canucks on Saturday.
Pulock reached the 30-point milestone with the effort. He added six blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in a well-rounded game. Pulock is just two points shy of his career high set last season. With 111 blocks and 131 shots on goal this season, Pulock provides strong value with and without the puck.
Pulock had two assists with the man advantage in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Oilers.
Deuces were wild in Pulock's stat line, as he had two each in assists, shots, blocked shots and PIM, while delivering three hits. The Canadian blueliner is an emerging star, with 29 points in 60 games to go with 102 hits, 105 blocks and 129 shots. Pulock is one of four players at this stage of the season to have 100-plus shots, hits and blocks, joining Darnell Nurse, Kris Letang and Radko Gudas.
Pulock recorded his 21st assist of the season in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Wild.
Pulock has seven points in his last five games. The 24-year-old drew the primary assist on Devon Toews' game-winning goal early in the second period.
Pulock scored two goals, one on the power play, in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over the Avalanche.
It looked like the defenseman had potted the winner with the man advantage when he blasted a shot from the high slot past Seymon Varlamov midway through the third period, but Colorado scored a fluky goal off Devon Toews' skate late in regulation, forcing Pulock to reprise his goal-scoring heroics in extra time. The 24-year-old hadn't bulged the twine in 2019 coming into Saturday, but he still has a solid five goals and 25 points in 54 games on the season.
Pulock racked up three assists in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Kings.
The blueliner also chipped in two shots, three blocked shots and a plus-3 rating. Pulock hasn't registered a point in his prior seven games, but the 24-year-old has been productive in spurts this season, and Saturday's eruption could be a sign that a hot streak is coming.
Pulock hasn't scored and only has one helper in his last 10 games.
Pulock has three goals, 16 assists and a plus-5 rating in 48 games so far this season for the Islanders. While the 19 points is a solid number, Pulock had 10 goals in 68 games last season. Perhaps this is the Barry Trotz effect, as defense is much more important under Trotz than it was with former coach Doug Weight, but it also shows that there is room to grow for Pulock. He's shooting the puck less than last year, as well.
Pulock set up two goals Saturday in a 4-0 win over the Maple Leafs.
He now has seven assists in his last six games. Pulock has been a disappointment this season, but his game may finally be coming into form. Make sure you take advantage.
Pulock set up two of his team's three goals Tuesday in a 3-1 win at Arizona.
Perhaps this road trip through the Southwest was just what Pulock needed, as he's notched four assists in two games after managing eight in his first 31. Pulock has the potential to be a better player than what he's shown, so monitor him to see if this surge is the start of something better for fantasy purposes.
Pulock only has two goals and 10 points in 31 games this season.
While it may be unfair to put any blame on Pulock for the Islanders' scoring woes, more was expected from Pulock entering this season. He had 10 goals, including five on the power play, last year. Pulock has as hard a shot as anyone on the Islanders but has had trouble finding the net at times this season. It also doesn't help that for most of the season, head coach Barry Trotz has had him on the second power-play unit. Pulock is only in his second full season at the NHL level, so there is still time for him to develop and grow his game.
Pulock was able to play Friday, despite suffering an arm injury in the Islanders' loss to the Rangers on Wednesday.
Pulock injured the arm upon crashing into allied goalie Thomas Greiss. He returned to the game but was unable to practice Thursday. Head coach Barry Trotz stated that he expected Pulock to play and was correct. Pulock has one goal, five assists, and a minus-2 rating in 20 games entering play Friday. He is still learning how to be a consistent blueliner, but his future would seem to be no worse than that of a second-pairing defenseman.
Pulock registered two helpers in Tuesday's 6-3 victory over Pittsburgh.
It was the first multipoint game of the year for Pulock, who has also scored in back-to-back outings. Perhaps the blueliner has shaken off the eight-game pointless streak that plagued him in the early part of the season. The Manitoba native should continue eating up big minutes (22:44) which will give him plenty of chances to keep racking up points.
Pulock scored Sunday's game-winning goal in a 2-1 win over the Hurricanes.
Scoreless in seven straight games, Pulock notched only his second point of the season Sunday. His first goal of the year came towards the end of the second period but wound up being the difference-maker in the game. Look for the 24-year-old blueliner to keep logging heavy minutes, but given his offensive limitations, you should probably avoid Pulock in fantasy.
Pulock hasn't registered a point since Opening Night in Carolina, a streak of seven straight games.
The Islanders are struggling as a whole to get more offense out of their defensemen. There are rumors that Devin Toews, one of their top defensive prospects, could be called up to help in that department. Pulock is not in danger of losing his roster spot, but head coach Barry Trotz could decide to split up Pulock and Adam Pelech. Trotz may also consider putting Pulock on the top power-play unit, as his booming shot from the point may be best utilized with top players like Mathew Barzal than on the second unit with less skilled forwards.
Pulock scored twice, once on the power play, in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime win over the Rangers in preseason action.
The 23-year-old blueliner has been shining with the man advantage in the preseason, and a consistent role alongside Mathew Barzal and the Islanders' top snipers on the power play -- Pulock averaged only 1:40 in PP time last season -- should allow him to easily surpass the 10 goals and 32 points he scored in 2017-18 in his first full NHL campaign.
Pulock scored the game-winning goal on the power play in a 3-2 preseason victory over the Flyers on Friday.
Now 23 years old, Pulock notched five power-play goals last season on his way to a career-high 10 goals and 32 points in 68 games. If he stays healthy, Pulock is a candidate to reach the 12-goal and 40-point plateaus in 2018-19. Also encouraging is the fact that even on a team notorious for poor defense, Pulock managed to avoid a putrid plus-minus last season, turning in a minus-4 rating.
Pulock inked a two-year deal with the Islanders on Tuesday.
The 23-year-old defenseman will remain in New York for two more years following a 2017-18 campaign in which he had career-highs in points (32), goals (10), and assists (22). Pulock was a relatively safe option last season, firing 184 shots on net despite playing in only 68 games. This rate of 2.71 shots per game was comparable to that of Artemi Panarin (2.81).
