RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Pulkkinen was one of the premier contributors for AHL Grand Rapids last season, scoring 31 goals and 28 assists in 71 regular season contests and potting another 11 points in 10 playoff games. He didn't do much in his three games with the Red Wings in 2013-14, but should get a shot at making the team in the fall.
After spending much of the 2012-13 season in Finland, Pulkkinen came to Grand Rapids just in time to put up five points in 14 playoff games in their Calder Cup run. The Red Wings are high on Pulkkinen but will probably give him another year or two in the AHL to get some experience in North America.
