Kulikov (lower body) was placed on injured reserve by the Panthers on Wednesday, Craig Davis of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. Kulikov was given a two-to-four week timetable last Thursday, so his placement to injured reserve shouldn't come as much of a surprise. The move will allow the Panthers to open up a roster spot for another blueliner should they choose to call one up.
Kulikov (lower body) will be sidelined for the next 2-to-4 weeks with a lower-body injury, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Head coach Gerard Gallant told reporters Sunday that Kulikov would be out "for at least a week" with a lower-body injury he sustained in Saturday's tilt against Tampa Bay. Kulikov recently underwent an MRI, which must have revealed that the ailment is more severe than initially expected. Steve Kampfer will continue to slot into Florida's lineup as the Panthers' sixth defenseman in Kulikov's absence.
Kulikov will miss at least a week due to the lower-body injury suffered in Saturday's game against the Lightning, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. The Panthers haven't specified Kulikov's injury beyond the lower-body, but it's serious enough to cost him at least a week. Steve Kampfer will fill in for him along the blue line while he recovers.
Kulikov will not return to Saturday's game after sustaining a lower-body injury, Harvey Fialkov of the Sun Sentinel reports. It's unclear when Kulikov might have suffered the injury, so more information should be provided after the game. The 25-year-old has totaled just three points, all off assists, this season.
Kulikov (nose) is on the ice for pregame warmups Saturday against the Capitals and is expected to play, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports. Kulikov suffered a broken nose in Friday's game against the Bruins but that apparently won't hold him back from playing just a day later. The 25-year-old has a total of three points on the season, all of which came by way of assists.
