Kuhlman was lifted from the COVID-19 protocol list Friday, Sportsnet's Chris Johnston reports. Kuhlman missed Thursday's game while he was on the virus protocol list but now he's eligible to get back to practice with his team. It's unclear if he'll make his season debut Saturday in New Jersey or be a healthy scratch.
Kuhlman is unavailable due to the league's COVID-19 protocols. The specifics of his placement remain unclear, but Kuhlman will not be able to practice or travel with the team until he's been cleared. This news likely rules the forward out of Thursday's game against New Jersey, but there's no specific timeline for his return.
Kuhlman (undisclosed) practiced in a red (non-contact) jersey Tuesday, Joe Haggerty of Boston Hockey Now reports. The 25-year-old, who notched a goal and six points in 25 games with Boston last season, could be eased back into the mix, but once he's up to speed, Kuhlman is a candidate to see bottom-six forward duty for the team.
Kuhlman has missed the first two days of Boston's training camp with an undisclosed issue, Joe Haggerty of Boston Hockey Now reports. The Bruins likely won't release any details regarding the reason for Kuhlman's absence, but he'll want to get back on the ice as soon as possible, as he's already on the outside looking in for a spot in Boston's bottom six. The 25-year-old forward posted six points in 25 games with the big club last campaign.
Kuhlman signed a two-year, $1.45 million contract with the Bruins on Tuesday. Kuhlman's deal is two-way in the first year before becoming one-way in 2021-22. Even though the Minnesota native could be easily assigned to the minors this year, he should have the inside track on a bottom-six role for the organization, especially while David Pastrnak (hip) is sidelined.
