New York Islanders Prospects: Three Players Deserving of Call Up
Ryan Pulock has the most NHL experience out of these three players, playing in the New York Islanders first-round playoff series against the Florida Panthers as well as a few games during the 2015-16 regular season.
In the 16 regular season games Pulock played in his NHL career, he tallied up two goals as well as two assists for a total of four points, which isn’t terrible for a young defenseman like him. Pulock also played in six games during last year’s playoff run and scored one goal as well as two assists.
Pulock has also shown to be a good asset on the powerplay, with his rocket of a shot and even scored a goal on the powerplay in that playoff series against Florida.
The heavy shot he carries is a nice asset on every fasset of the game. Because he has the ability to put the puck on the net, players like Anders Lee have better chances to tip these shots in and tuck in rebounds. Which should mean more goal scoring for this New York Islanders team.
Pulock has missed a ton of games this season afer beraking his foot blocking a shot against the Arizona Coyotes in his first game after being called up to replace Nick Leddy on October 21st.
But with the New York Islanders having found some form of stability in their defensive pairings, he’s not likely needed on this Islanders team and as such will stay in Bridgeport to gain more experience and be available for a callup when needed.

Final Verdict: Joshua Ho-Sang
Joshua Ho-Sang Haan everything the Isles need in a player; from his playmaking ability to his locker room personality it only makes sense to call him up. The other two are great options but don’t give the Islanders what they are lacking presently; creativity.
