Islanders, first-round pick Ryan Pulock come to terms

The New York Islanders announced Saturday that defenseman Ryan Pulock, their first-round pick (No. 15) in the 2013 NHL Draft, has agreed to terms on a three-year entry-level contract.

Pulock, a native of Dauphin, Manitoba, scored 45 points (14 goals, 31 assists) in 61 games last season with the Brandon Wheat Kings during his third Western Hockey League campaign.

In 2011-12, Pulock was named to the WHL East First All-Star Team after scoring 19 goals and finishing with 60 points in 71 games with Brandon.

He represented Canada at the 2012 Under-18 World Junior Championships, scoring two points (one goal, one assist) in six games to help the club earn a bronze medal.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
