    Nikolay Kulemin (upper body) underwent surgery Monday and will be sidelined for the next six months.Kulemin suffered the injury when he took a big hit from Eric Gryba on Nov. 7 against the Oilers and has already missed two games. The fourth-year Islander has been ruled out for the remainder of the regular season, but could return if the Isles make a deep postseason run.

    Islanders' Nikolay Kulemin: Out indefinitely

    New York Islanders coach Doug Weight said Nikolay Kulemin's upper-body injury will keep him out indefinitely, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.It's a good thing that the Islanders are otherwise stacked with offensive producers on the left wing -- they have Anders Lee, Andrew Ladd and Brock Nelson hanging in the top nine -- because the bench boss sounds downright discouraged by Kulemin's prognosis. It's worth moving Kulemin to the fantasy IR slot if you haven't done so already.

    Islanders' Nikolay Kulemin: Moves to IR

    Nikolay Kulemin (upper body) was placed on injured reserve retroactive to Nov. 7 on Wednesday.The Isles wasted little time sending the Russian to IR, considering his ailment surfaced in Tuesday evening's contest against the Oilers. Given how the Isles only have two games scheduled for the duration of Kulemin's projected absence, we wouldn't let this news ruin your day, especially since he's a low-end winger at a relatively deep position.

    Islanders' Nikolay Kulemin: Suffers upper-body injury

    Nikolay Kulemin won't return to Tuesday's game against the Oilers due to an upper-body injury, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports.Kulemin took a nasty hit from Eric Gryba in the second period Tuesday, and Gryba was sent to the sin bin for boarding. As he went up the tunnel, it appeared Kulemin was favoring his left arm, but no specific information has been released. The 31-year-old winger will have until Friday to recover for a matchup with Dallas, but if he's unable to get healthy, Alan Quine (upper body) will likely be ready to step back into the lineup.

    Islanders' Nikolay Kulemin: Rare two-point outing

    Nikolay Kulemin recorded a goal and an assist in Saturday's 6-3 home victory over the Golden Knights.Ladies and gentlemen, we finally have a Kulemin sighting. The Russian tripled his point total with this performance, but unfortunately he still only has one goal and a pair of assists on the season. His bottom-six role isn't conducive to generating much offense, and we feel that his strong effort Monday will prove to be more of an aberration than the start of a new trend.

    Islanders' Nikolay Kulemin: Struggling this season

    Nikolay Kulemin is off to a slow start this season with no goals and a single assist in six games.Kulemin has proven to be an extremely poor signing by general manager Garth Snow, as he only has 36 goals in 241 games over four seasons with the New York Islanders. He has been relegated to a checking role on the fourth line, but it's fair to wonder if the Isles will eventually designate him a healthy scratch in what is likely his final season with the team.

    Islanders' Nikolay Kulemin: Suiting up Saturday

    Nikolay Kulemin (upper body) is on the ice for warmups Saturday, assigned to the fourth line against the Devils.Kulemin had missed the past seven games with his ailment, so it'll be interesting to see how many minutes he can handle. Of course, his fourth-line assignment doesn't put him in a fantasy-friendly situation.

    Islanders' Nikolay Kulemin: Practicing Wednesday

    Nikolay Kulemin (upper body) was on the ice for practice Wednesday, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.It was thought that Kulemin could be lost for season due to the injury, so his attendance at practice does come as a bit of a surprise. The New York Islanders have three games left this season and will likely need to win them all in order to make the playoffs. With John Tavares, Ryan Strome and Casey Cizikas also out due to injury, Kulemin's return would be most welcome.

    Islanders' Nikolay Kulemin: Could be lost for the season

    Nikolay Kulemin (upper body) could miss the remainder of the regular season, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.Kulemin suffered the injury Friday in Pittsburgh. It was originally thought that he would only miss a game or two, but now 2-to-3 weeks seems a more realistic possibility. If Kulemin is indeed done for season, he'll finish with 12 goals and 22 points.

    Islanders' Nikolay Kulemin: Doubtful for next two

    Nikolay Kulemin (undisclosed) is unlikely to be available for the New York Islanders' next two outings, Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post reports.Prior to getting hurt, Kulemin was performing well as he had tallied a goal and two helpers in his previous six contests. The winger is unlikely to put up huge numbers -- considering he has broken the 30-point mark just once in the last six seasons -- but should continue to provide solid mid-range fantasy value once he returns to the lineup.
