  • Blue Jackets' Dean Kukan: Heads out on assignment

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/5/18) Kukan was reassigned to AHL Cleveland for a conditioning stint, the team announced Wednesday.

    Kukan has appeared in just one of the Jackets' previous 19 outings and can now spend up to two weeks in the minors in order to get some game action. When he is in the lineup, the Swiss defender is logging a mere 12:21 of ice time and has zero points to show for it.

    Blue Jackets' Dean Kukan: Set to sit Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/9/18) Kukan will be a healthy scratch for Tuesday's game versus Colorado, Alison Lukan of The Athletic reports.

    Scott Harrington is set to replace Kukan in the lineup, having just been activated off injured reserve. The 25-year-old Swiss-born rearguard failed to register a point in Columbus' first two games, posting a minus-1 rating.

    Blue Jackets' Dean Kukan: Will represent Team Switzerland

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/27/18) Kukan will play for Team Switzerland at the IIHF World Hockey Championship, Tom Reed of The Athletic Cleveland reports.

    Kukan was used sparingly by the Blue Jackets this season, but he played pretty well when he was inserted into the lineup, picking up four assists while posting a plus-2 rating in 11 contests. The 24-year-old blueliner will hope to use the World Championship as an opportunity to prove he deserves a regular spot in Columbus' lineup in 2018-19.

    Blue Jackets' Dean Kukan: Activated off IR

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/16/18) Kukan (upper body) was activated from the injured reserve list Friday.

    Just two days after inking a two-year extension with the Blue Jackets, Kukan will rejoin the Jackets' corps of defensemen. He winds up missing just short of the four weeks he was expected to be sidelined. However, there is no guarantee the 24-year-old will immediately slot into the lineup with as many as eight blueliners potentially available Saturday. It wouldn't be surprising to see the Blue Jackets demote one or more of the defensemen when Ryan Murray (undisclosed) is ready to go.

    Blue Jackets' Dean Kukan: Inks extension

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/14/18) Kukan (upper body) agreed to terms on a two-year, one-way deal with Columbus on Wednesday.

    Perhaps the most significant aspect of Kukan's new deal is that it is a one-way contract, which means he will make the same in the NHL or AHL, thereby discouraging the team from demoting him. An upper-body issue has kept the defenseman out of the lineup since Feb. 18. The 24-year-old could be available in late March; however, if the team is out of playoff contention, it could opt just to keep him on the shelf.
