Top Brett Kulak News

  • Oilers' Brett Kulak: Game-time decision for Game 7

    Kulak (undisclosed) didn't take part in morning skate and is a game-time decision for Saturday's Game 7 against the visiting Kings, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

    Michaels expects Kulak to play, but the 28-year-old should be considered a game-time decision for now. Kulak has recorded assists in back-to-back games and averaged a solid 18:15 of ice time in the series, so his absence would certainly be felt if he's forced to miss time.

  • Oilers' Brett Kulak: Helpers in back-to-back games

    Kulak provided an assist, three hits, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Kings in Game 6.

    Kulak has picked up helpers in each of the last two games after going without a point in the first four playoff contests. The 28-year-old has added eight shots on net, 11 hits, eight blocked shots and a plus-2 rating in the postseason. While he saw a top-pairing role Thursday, he should be back in the bottom four when Darnell Nurse returns from a suspension for Saturday's Game 7.

  • Oilers' Brett Kulak: Picks up first assist of playoffs

    Kulak notched an assist and four hits in Tuesday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Kings in Game 5.

    The assist was Kulak's first point in five playoff contests. The defenseman has mostly played in a bottom-four role as a defensive presence. He's added six shots on net, eight hits, eight blocked shots and six PIM, so fantasy managers aren't likely to need to turn to him to fill out DFS lineups in the playoffs.

  • Canadiens' Brett Kulak: Finishes off Senators

    Kulak scored a goal on two shots and blocked two shots in Saturday's 5-1 win over Ottawa.

    Kulak took a drop pass in stride at the point then stickhandled between several flat-footed Senator defenders before lifting a wrist shot over the left shoulder of Filip Gustavsson for Montreal's final goal of the night. It was the defenseman's first goal since Feb. 8 and third of the season.

  • Oilers' Brett Kulak: Acquired via trade

    Kulak was brought in by the Oilers from the Canadiens on Monday in exchange for William Lagesson, a second-round pick and a seventh-round pick, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.

    Kulak will play for his third Canadian-based team having previously spent time with Montreal and Calgary. The 28-year-old defender has never reached the 20-point threshold in his career and figures to remain a low-end fantasy option as a result. With Kulak set to hit free agency this offseason, he'll be a pure rental option for the Oilers.

  • Canadiens' Brett Kulak: Collects shorthanded assist

    Kulak had a shorthanded assist, three shots on net, one hit, one blocked shot and a plus-1 rating over 22:29 of ice time in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Oilers.

    Kulak joined a shorthanded breakout, taking the puck behind the goal line before finding Artturi Lehkonen in the slot for Montreal's fourth goal. He was part of a unit that prevented the Oilers, who are the third-best team on the power play, from scoring in four chances. The Edmonton-native was allotted his second highest TOI of the season in front of hometown fans, and he played well at both ends. Kulak has 12 points (two goals), 49 shots, 60 hits, 39 blocked shots and a minus-8 rating over 50 games.

He was paired Petry on the first unit defense, as interim head coach Martin St. Louis moved the left-shooting Ben Chiarot to the right side on the second pair.

  • 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.
