RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
After Griffin Reinhart, Pulock is the cream of the crop when it comes to Islander defensive prospects. While Reinhart may end up being the superior overall defender of the pair, Pulock is the one who could end up being the better offensive blueliner, and thus, carry more fantasy upside. Pulock possesses a booming shot, which could be very dangerous on the power play, if and when he’s given the opportunity.
Pulock was the Islanders' first-round draft pick this past July. He projects as a possibly top-four defenseman should he develop, but there are just as many doubters out there whobelieve he will only be a power play specialist. What no one doubts is his shot. It's hard and heavy and will be a weapon if/when he makes his NHL debut.
