  • Sabres' Dmitry Kulikov: Back in action Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/24/17) Kulikov (back) will return to Buffalo's lineup for Tuesday's game against the Predators, John Vogl of The Buffalo News reports.

    Kulikov has been a pretty big disappointment for the Sabres this season, as he's already missed 26 games due to injury, and has only notched a single assist in the 20 games he's appeared in while posting an ugly minus-10 rating over that span. Kulikov logs a ton of minutes when healthy, but his lack of offensive upside keeps him off the fantasy radar in the majority of fantasy formats.

    Sabres' Dmitry Kulikov: Likely to return soon

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/24/17) Head coach Dan Bylsma said there's 'a very good chance' Kulikov (back) will play during the Sabres' three-game road trip, WGR 550 reports.

    Kulikov practiced Monday but his status for Tuesday's game against Nashville is still questionable and remains a game-time decision. He's missed the past 12 games, the second time he's missed a big chunk of the season, and has appeared in just 20 games so far, registering one assist and a minus-10 rating. Acquired from Florida in a trade and brought in to stabilize a young blue line, the 25-year-old has made a minimal impact with the Sabres so far due to his limited appearances and doesn't offer much offensive upside in fantasy leagues.

    Sabres' Dmitry Kulikov: Skates with team

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/23/17) Kulikov practiced with the team for the first time since suffering his back injury Monday.

    This is a good sign that Kulikov will return to the lineup sooner than later after skating on his own Sunday. The veteran rearguard has appeared in just 20 games for the Sabres this season after playing at least 73 games in each of his past three seasons. Given his limited offensive upside, his fantasy value is very limited at this point, but his return will give the Sabres defense a boost. There is no date set for Kulikov's return and the Sabres begin a three-game road trip Tuesday.

    Sabres' Dmitry Kulikov: Skates on own

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/15/17) Kulikov (back) skated on his own Sunday, John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports.

    Kulikov has yet to return to practice for the Sabres since the start of his back ailment, but he's at least displaying some progress in his recovery by skating on his own. The next step is a return to practice and then to game action, where the 26-year-old will attempt to improve on a rough start to the season (one point in 20 games).

    Sabres' Dmitry Kulikov: Has not returned to practice

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/9/17) Kulikov (back), who has missed the past six games, was not on the ice for Monday's skate.

    It's been a tough first year in Buffalo for Kulikov, who has been forced to sit out with an injury for nearly half the season so far. He's appeared in just 20 of 39 games, despite having played at least 73 in each of his past three seasons. The Sabres are managing without him and leaning heavily on Rasmus Ristolainen yet again, but could use him to stabilize the back end. Given his limited offensive value and injury woes this season, Kulikov has very little fantasy value. He's questionable for Tuesday's game against Philadelphia.
