from Ted Kulfan of The Detroit News,
If there’s one thing Teemu Pulkkinen can do, it’s fire the puck.
“He has an unbelievable shot,” said Cory Emmerton, who was a linemate of Pulkkinen’s in Grand Rapids. “Probably one of the best I’ve played with. I don’t know if he’s scored a fluke goal all season.
“They’ve been slap shots, just blowing it past the goalie.”
Pulkkinen, a 2010 fourth-round draft pick, makes his NHL debut Friday when the Red Wings host Edmonton. Pulkkinen replaces Tomas Jurco (broken rib) in the lineup.
“It’s going to be fun,” said Pulkkinen, who was skating on a line with Emmerton and Drew Miller during Thursday’s practice. “I’m not nervous. It’s one game. It’s a different game, but you have to have fun.”

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
