Pulkkinen is a player who has taken steps in the last year dedicating himself to his development
Huge frame. Once up to speed he's dangerous off the rush. If he gets the edge he takes the puck to the net and knows how to score. Pulkinnen has a fantastic release - backhand and forehand - in the offensive zone.
Defensively he takes up room and uses his length to defend at even strength.
On the PK he's a bit raw with his read / react / jump to space to check and win pucks. It's more of a timing issue than a hockey sense concern.
Needs time. Raw talent. 2-way 'D'
