Islanders select Pulock 15th overall
Manitoba-Born Defenseman Served As Captain Of Brandon Wheat Kings (WHL)

The New York Islanders have selected Ryan Pulock with the 15th overall pick in the 2013 National Hockey League Draft. Islanders General Manager Garth Snow announced the pick Sunday at Prudential Center in Newark, NJ.

Pulock, a native of Dauphin, Manitoba, scored 45 points (14 goals, 31 assists) in 61 games this past season with the Brandon Wheat Kings in his third Western Hockey League campaign. The 6’0, 211-pound defenseman served as team captain as an 18-year-old.

“Our organization’s young core has been built through the NHL Draft and is beginning to mature into a team that will perennially compete for the Stanley Cup,” Snow said. “With the guidance from our coaching and development staff, we’re confident that Pulock will develop into yet another key piece of that core. Ryan’s leadership qualities, his steady defensive presence and his ability to jump into the play on offense will be an asset for our team for years to come.”

In 2011-12, Pulock was named to the WHL Eastern Conference First All-Star Team after posting 60 points (19 goals, 41 assists) 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.

This pick marked the fifth time in Islanders history that the club selected fifteenth overall. Previous fifteenth-overall picks include Mike Bossy in 1977, Steve Tambellini in 1978, Robert Nilsson in 2003 and Ryan O’Marra in 2005.
