  • Nikolay Kulemin: Inks deal with KHL squad

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/12/18) Kulemin will play for Magnitogorsk of the KHL in 2018-19, Arthur Staple of The Athletic New York reports.

    After sitting out a majority of the season due to a shoulder injury, Kulemin will venture overseas to his hometown, Magnitogorsk, in order to continue his hockey career. The 31-year-old was set to become an unrestricted free agent July 1 anyway. Kulemin had been a bottom-six player for most of his NHL time, only surpassing 30 points once over the last seven seasons for the Islanders and Maple Leafs.

    Islanders' Nikolay Kulemin: Could have played in postseason

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/9/18) Kulemin (shoulder) told reporters he would have been ready for the playoffs if the Islanders had qualified, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Kulemin's shoulder injury caused him to miss 67 straight games dating back to Nov. 7. In his limited action (13 games), the winger recorded one goal, two helpers and seven shots. A free agent this offseason, the 31-year-old should be capable of reaching the 20-point mark in 2018-19 if he can stay healthy.

    Islanders' Nikolay Kulemin: Practices Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/20/18) Kulemin (shoulder) practiced and rotated into the line rushes Monday, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports.

    Kulemin wasn't among the changes listed by Coach Doug Weight for Tuesday's lineup, so it's safe to assume he will need to get a few more practices under the belt before being considered for an addition to the lineup. Other than Ross Johnston subbing in for Cal Clutterbuck (migraines), the lines are expected to remain the same for Tuesday's matchup. A more definitive timeline for Kulemin's return should surface as he draws closer to rejoining the lineup.

    Islanders' Nikolay Kulemin: Expected to return to full practice shortly

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/15/18) Kulemin (shoulder) is expected to return to a full practice within the next five days, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    Kulemin has been out of the lineup since undergoing shoulder surgery in mid-November. His return to practice would seem to indicate that the Islanders won't shut him down for the remainder of the season, but will instead plug him into the lineup once he is medically cleared to play. New York's penalty killing has been at a loss since Kulemin has been injured, and that is likely where he will serve the team best.

    Islanders' Nikolay Kulemin: Skating with team

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/2/18) Kulemin (shoulder) skated with the team during an optional practice Friday.

    Kulemin has been out since undergoing surgery in mid-November. His loss has been felt mainly on the penalty kill as he was one of the most valuable members on that unit. Coach Doug Weight has stated that Kulemin is still weeks away from returning, but with his contract up at the end of the season and the Islanders' playoff situation looking murky at best, it's fair to wonder if the team would be better off starting younger players over veterans like Kulemin anyway.
