  • Canadiens' Brett Kulak: In action versus Avs

    Kulak (lower body) will play in Thursday's clash with Colorado.

    Kulak -- who missed the previous four games due to his lower-body issue -- was averaging just 16:22 of ice time prior to getting hurt. As such, fantasy players should be tempering expectations for the blueliner, whose ceiling is likely still in the 20-point range despite a strong start to the year with five points in 20 games.

  • Canadiens' Brett Kulak: Assists on first goal

  • Canadiens' Brett Kulak: Logs helper

    Kulak recorded an assist and two hits in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Sharks.

    Kulak set up Mike Hoffman's opening tally at 12:09 of the first period. The 27-year-old Kulak has been a little surprising on offense with three assists in eight games. He had all of eight points in 46 outings last season, so he shouldn't be expected to contribute much on offense. The Alberta native has added eight hits, six blocked shots and a plus-1 rating while logging third-pairing minutes this year.

    Kulak had an assist, blocked one shot and finished plus-1 over 12:46 of ice time in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Rangers.

    It was Kulak's second assist this season, and it resembled the first helper on Opening Night, right down to the player who scored the goal. The defenseman won a puck battle in the neutral zone then initiated a transition that led to Jonathan Drouin's goal. Kulak's surprisingly tied for the team lead with two points through three games. In three previous seasons with Montreal, Kulak totaled 32 points over 159 games.

    Kulak had an assist, one shot on net, one hit and one blocked shot over 17:43 of ice time in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Maple Leafs.

    Kulak had the secondary assist on Montreal's lone goal when he poke-checked the puck, turning away a Toronto neutral- zone rush. The puck went right to Josh Anderson, who led a two-on-one rush that ended with a Jonathan Drouin goal. Kulak is not going to be a threat offensively, but he should get a healthy dose of minutes on the second pairing. All of Montreal's blueliners will be asked to do more with Shea Weber (ankle) out for the season.
