Observations:

 

October 2014 - Pulock has been assigned to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the AHL. He was one of the two final cuts along with Anders Lee. Brad Wilson

 

September 2014 - Ryan Pulock made history in an exhibition game against the New Jersey Devils when he scored the opening goal 8:21 into the first period on a power play. It was the first ever on Barclays Center Ice. Pulock's blast has become his trademark as he tries to crack a young and inspired Islanders team, "My slap shot is a weapon I like to use. I try to get it off as much as possible." Brad Wilson

 

May 2014 - Pulock finished the year with a career best 23 goals and 63 points. After posting 4 points in 9 playoff games with the Wheat Kings, he joined the AHL Sound Tigers for the final three games of their season. He had an assist, two penalty minutes and was a minus-1. Brad Wilson

 

March 2014 - Pulock has carried his successful season into the playoffs. The Wheat Kings are up two games to zero and Pulock is doing his part to push the team over the top. He currently has two goals and four points in the two opening playoff games. Brad Wilson

 

March 2014 - Ryan Pulock broke a 35 year-old Wheat Kings record for goals by a defenseman when he netted his 21st of the season tonight (March 1st). It was his 62nd goal in his four years with the Kings. The record was previously held by former Kings all-star Brad McCrimmon who set the record at 61 in 1979 during his third season with the team. McCrimmon is the Kings all time leading scorer with 279 points in 203 games. Captain Pulock currently sits at 202 points in 254 regular season games. Brad Wilson

 

January 2014 - Pulock continues to have a strong year as Captain of the Brandon Wheat Kings. He is currently clipping along at a point per game pace while ranking third in team scoring. He is well on his way to being ready to turn pro next season. Brad Wilson

 

 

Decemeber 2013 - Pulock was left off the team Canada roster for the WJC. Canada is very deep on defense and although Pulock would be an asset, he won't be called on for this tournament. Brad Wilson

 

November 2013 - Pulock has been stellar thus far for the Wheat Kings. He leads all team defense in points with 21 and has sent eight pucks to the back of the net as well. Look for the captain to continue his tear in what will be his final year as a junior player. Brad Wilson

 

October 2013 – Pulock got off to a fiery start to the 2013-14 WHL season as he factored in on all four goals in Brandon’s 4-3 opening night victory over the Edmonton Oil Kings. In his first two games back with his junior club he has posted six points, including two goals. Expect a big season from the Wheat Kings captain. Brad Wilson

 

October 2013 – As expected, Pulock was sent back to the Brandon Wheat Kings of the WHL at the conclusion of the NHL preseason. Watch for Pulock to serve as the Wheat Kings captain once more as well as join Canada in the World Junior tournament this Christmas. Brad Wilson

 

September 2013 - The Islanders have a need for a defenseman with Pulock’s pedigree after the departure of Streit; however, the 15th pick in the 2013 draft is likely slotted for at least one more season as the captain of the Brandon Wheat Kings in the WHL. Pulock is also expected to pull on a team Canada jersey for the 2013/14 World Junior Hockey Championship this coming Christmas. Brad Wilson

 

December 2012 – Ryan Pulock is a smart, two-way defenseman with a cannon of a slap shot. Pulock came into this season as one of the top defenseman in the entire WHL and he has continued to produce. The Brandon Wheat Kings captain has 29 points in 30 games this year. Pulock’s smart game mixed with his versatility and overall skill set should translate well at the next level. He could definitely improve on the physical aspect of his game and make better use of his good frame. Despite not being invited to try out for Team Canada’s World Junior squad, he will play for Team Cherry next month at the CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game. Zenon Herasymiuk
