The New York Islanders are going to have to deal with Nick Leddy’s injury. He’s a vital part to their defense and power play unit.
When Ryan Pulock was recalled by the New York Islanders we figured it was because there was an injury to a defenseman. We were just unaware who it was that was injured. We found out yesterday that it was Nick Leddy who was injured.
Leddy is listed as day to day with an upper body injury. As a result the recently sent down Pulock is up and ready to go.
Pulock said “I think I was at times putting too much pressure on myself not to make mistakes, whereas I’ve just got to go out there, just play, not worry about that. That’s a big part of it — play without that hesitation.”

He didn’t have a particularly great camp but he was expected to make the team. Pulock will now have to fill in for Leddy on the top power play unit.
With Frans Nielsen gone Leddy was the one carrying the puck into the zone. Will Pulock do that? We know he has that powerful slapshot that can be deadly on the power play, but the question remains if he will take Leddy’s exact role or not.
