  • Panthers' Dmitry Kulikov: Good to go Saturday

    Kulikov (illness) is expected to play Saturday against the Kraken, Katie Engleson of Bally Sports Florida reports.

    Kulikov was reported to be a game-time decision while battling an illness, though it appears he'll be good to go Saturday against Seattle. The 32-year-old blueliner has three assists in his first six games with Florida this season while averaging 20:13 of ice time.

  • Panthers' Dmitry Kulikov: Dealing with illness

    Kulikov is dealing with an illness and will be a game-time decision against Seattle on Saturday, Colby Guy of Florida Hockey Now reports.

    Kulikov is not exactly known as an offensive powerhouse -- he's reached the 20-point threshold just once in the last eight seasons -- but he's off to a strong start with three helpers in six games. If the blueliner is unable to play versus the Kraken, Mike Reilly could be in line to make his season debut for the Panthers.

  • Panthers' Dmitry Kulikov: Snags assist in win

    Kulikov registered an assist in a 4-3 victory over the Devils on Monday.

    Kulikov has points in back-to-back games already this season, a feat he accomplished just once last year. While the 32-year-old defenseman could be thrust into a more offensively-minded role with both Aaron Ekblad (shoulder) and Brandon Montour (shoulder) out long-term, the fact is Kulikov has just one 20-plus point campaign in the last eight seasons and has never managed to get to the 30-point mark in his 15-year career.

  • Penguins' Dmitry Kulikov: Game-time call

    Kulikov (lower body) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's matchup with Chicago.

  • Penguins' Dmitry Kulikov: Getting closer to return

    Kulikov (lower body) is progressing in his recovery and could return sooner rather than later after coach Mike Sullivan told reporters Tuesday, "The fact that all these guys are on the ice, traveling with us, it just suggests that they're that much closer to returning to the lineup," per Pens Inside Scoop.

    Following his trade-deadline move, Kulikov played in just four games with the Penguins before sustaining his lower-body injury. The 32-year-old blueliner shouldn't be expected to offer much in the way of fantasy value given his limited offensive upside once cleared to return.

  • Penguins' Dmitry Kulikov: Designated for injured reserve

    Kulikov (lower body) was placed on long-term injured reserve Wednesday.

    Kulikov is already considered week-to-week due to his lower-body injury but the fact that he is LTIR will rule him out until at least early April. In his four games with the Pens, the 32-year-old blueliner managed one assist, two shots and six hits while averaging 12:40 of ice time. In his stead, Pierre-Olivier Joseph figures to serve as a bottom-pairing defenseman.

  • Penguins' Dmitry Kulikov: Considered week-to-week

    Kulikov (lower body) was labeled week-to-week by coach Mike Sullivan on Tuesday, Wes Crosby of reports.

    Kulikov joins fellow trade deadline acquisition Nick Bonino (abdomen) on the shelf with longer-term problems. With Kulikov sidelined, youngster Pierre-Olivier Joseph will step back into the lineup after being a healthy scratch for the previous three games. Once given the green light to return, the 32-year-old Kulikov should be in contention to reclaim his place in the lineup.

Kulikov now has four points in his last three games after logging just one point in his previous 26 contests. The 32-year-old defenseman has played a steady role on Anaheim's top pairing, though it's hard to imagine he can sustain this type of production offensively.
