Trent Klatt, Islanders Player Development
Ryan Pulock is a slick, skilled puck-moving defenseman. Pulock is a very good skater who’s efficient and very mobile. He’s not afraid to carry the puck up ice and has a slap shot that is very hard and heavy which will help an NHL power play.

Islander website comments from GM, Garth Snow.
“Our organization’s young core has been built through the NHL Draft and is beginning to mature into a team that will perennially compete for the Stanley Cup,” Snow said. “With the guidance from our coaching and development staff, we’re confident that Pulock will develop into yet another key piece of that core. Ryan’s leadership qualities, his steady defensive presence and his ability to jump into the play on offense will be an asset for our team for years to come.”
Pulock finished third among WHL defensemen with 60 points, behind unsigned former Islander prospect, Brenden Kichton.
