Ryan Pulock impressed immensely for the New York Islanders in 2017-18 and he continues to impress during the 2018 preseason. He’s now scored three times in the preseason.

The 2017-18 season not only saw the emergence of Mathew Barzal for the New York Islanders with a point per game and a Calder Trophy as the leagues top rookie, but it also saw the emergence of Ryan Pulock.

Scoring ten goals in his first full season with the Islanders, Pulock lead all rookie blueliners in goals last season. In terms of points, Pulock ranked second behind Nick Leddy for Isles defensemen with 32.

This year, his sophomore NHL season we expect great things from Pulock. And through four preseason games so far in 2018, Ryan Pulock has delivered on that expectation.

Keeps on Scoring

In his fourth preseason game, Ryan Pulock has scored his third goal. This time it was a big slap shot from the point that beat Henrik Lundqivst low on the blocker side.

He’s scored three different ways so far this preseason. First, it was a bullet of a slapshot in overtime against the Philadelphia Flyers on the 21st in Allentown.

His second of the preseason was a solo effort as Pulock dangled through two New York Rangers defenders and roofed the puck over Rangers goalie Alexandar Georgiev.

It’s fair to say that Ryan Pulock has now cemented himself as an important blueliner for the New York Islanders. The fact that he’s taking the opportunity to show his quality in training camp can only be a good sign for things to come in 2018-19.

We all expect Ryan Pulock to take a big step forward in his second NHL season. As the 2018 preseason dwindles down and the regular season is only days away, it seems that he’s poised to take that leap.
