He'll need to shorten that a bit if he wants to get shots off in time.
I don't think his slap shot is all he's got in the toolbox...one amateur scout notes:
"He (Pulock) also understands the importance of getting the puck on net, and
is able to utilize a good wrist shot and quick release when teams try to take away his big bomb.
On the rush, he has decent stickhandling and can be the lead man with the puck or can join the attack as the trailer, ready to unleash his rocket slapper or that
very good wrist shot.
" - Ben Kerr
Also, in my own video reviews I've seen him wind up for that slapper, recognize that a defender is positioning to block, then adjust by laying off the shot and moving laterally to find a lane for the slap or wrister, or I've seen him stickhandle around that defender and get closer to the net before unleashing a wrister.
