Hometown: Dauphin, MB

Shoots: Right


Rankings: CSS (12 NA), ISS (14), TSN (30), Hockey Prospectus (12)

Hockey Prospectus:

Finding the perfect spot for Pulock was difficult. Some scouts consider him to be a top-eight player in this draft, whereas others prefer him in the 11-15 range. Despite concerns, he has been one of the WHL's top offensive defensemen for the past three seasons. He tied for the points lead among all Wheat Kings this year. His best tool is his shot, which is elite, and NHL teams will utilize it atop the umbrella on their first power play unit.
