Winnipeg Jets

The Jets have signed Dmitry Kulikov to a three-year deal worth $12.99M ($4.33M AAV).

Kulikov broke into the NHL with a bang, but has struggled in recent years, culminating in him being traded to Buffalo last summer and him only posting five points (2G / 3A) in 47 games with the Sabres. Still only 26-years-old, the Jets obviously see something they like in the former No.14 overall pick (2009). Kulikov will be leaned on as a No.4/No.5 defenseman in Winnipeg, which should help him in the defensive aspect of the game.

Kulikov (back) returned to practice on Monday.

Kulikov has been out since December 27th, but returned to practice on Monday, which suggests that he could be back by the time the Sabres’ return from the All-Star break. Expect him to miss Tuesday and Thursday’s game before the break, but monitor his status as the week progresses just to be sure.

Kulikov (undisclosed) is expected to return to the lineup on Friday.

Kulikov has been out since November 9th because of an undisclosed injury, but look for him to get back into the lineup tonight vs. the Capitals. The first-year Sabre defenseman is still looking for his first point with his new team. He has picked up 10 penalty minutes and six shots in 12 game so far.
