I hit a rock on the left front, punctured the tire and now my car pulls to the right.
Does this make any sense? Help.

Depending on the angle of impact, he may have "Toe'ed-In" the Left front.
That'd cause it to pull right. (Or, more correctly, PUSH to the Right....)

Bent strut would be worst-case-scenario, but possible.
More likely, if he's lucky, it's a Mildly bent tie-rod that can be adjusted with an alignment. Either could cause the steering wheel to sit off-center. it needs to be inspected and aligned either way.
Here's Hoping....
