Pulock joins Bridgeport

Brandon Wheat Kings captain Ryan Pulock is getting an early start on his professional hockey career, while second-year centre John Quenneville is taking his game overseas.

The Wheat Kings’ elimination from the Western Hockey League playoffs has opened the door to new opportunities for some of the team’s top players.

Pulock, 19, has been called up to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers — the New York Islanders’ American Hockey League affiliate — for the rest of the season. The defenceman was chosen by the Islanders, 15th overall, in the 2013 National Hockey League entry draft and signed a three-year entry-level contract with the team in September. The Sound Tigers have three games left in the regular season and, like the Islanders, will miss the playoffs.

Meanwhile, Quenneville, 17, has been added to the Canadian team that will compete in the world under-18 championship in Finland, beginning on Thursday. Wheat Kings right-winger Jayce Hawryluk, who was injured and missed the final game of the team’s playoff loss to the Edmonton Oil Kings on Friday, could also join Team Canada if he gets medical clearance. The Canadians, including defenceman Travis Sanheim of Elkhorn, play their second of two pre-tournament games today against Denmark after losing 3-2 to Finland on Friday.
