Kulemin underwent surgery for an upper-body injury and will miss six months.

Kulemin was hurt in against the Oilers last Tuesday and will miss the rest of the 2017-18 season after undergoing surgery. Josh Ho-Sang was recalled after Kulemin was moved to IR and this injury could allow the rookie to remain with the team.

The Islanders have placed Nikolay Kulemin (upper-body) on IR.

Kulemin left Tuesday’s loss vs. Edmonton with an upper-body injury after playing 8:03 TOI and didn’t return. This afternoon the Isles moved him to IR and Alan Quine, who has recalled this morning will likely take his spot in the lineup on Friday.

Kulemin will draw back into the Islanders lineup on Tuesday.

Kulemin was held out of the lineup for the last two games, but will draw back in tonight vs. the Coyotes. The fourth-line winger has recorded just one assist in six games this season and should not be considered as a fantasy option.

Kulemin will skate on the Islanders top line tonight vs. Anaheim.

The Islanders first line left-wing spot has been a revolving door to start the season. Cory Conacher and Brock Nelson have occupied that spot previously, now Kulemin will get a twirl there. He has one goal and five assists in 11 games this season.

Kulemin back on the Islanders second line Saturday.

A day after skating on the Islanders top-line, Kulemin was back on the second line this morning; with Cory Conacher moving back to the first line with John Tavares. Kulemin will start the game on the second line, but will move up in Conacher struggles.

Kulemin is skating on the Islanders first line.

Kulemin is skated on the Isles top-line with John Tavares and Kyle Okposo at practice this morning. Cory Conacher had been playing there for the first seven games of the season, but it looks like Kulemin will take a turn there on Saturday. He has three assists in the first seven games, but definitely receives a fantasy boost and is worth a speculative add in standard leagues.

The Islanders signed Nikolai Kulemin to a four-year, $16.75 million dollar contract.

Kulemin tallied nine goals and added 11 assists (20 points) in 70 games with the Maple Leafs. He spent the first six years of his career with Toronto, and 2013-14 was his worst year. The former 30 goal scorer has tallied just 23 goals over the last three seasons (188 games played). He could play with John Tavares, which would boost his fantasy value or he may be re-united with Mikhail Grabovski.

Nikolai Kulemin who was at practice yesterday, is not at the game-day skate this morning.

Kulemin looks to be the guy who will initially fill David Clarkson's spot alongside Nazem Kadri and Joffrey Lupul.

Kulemin has some fantasy value even on Toronto's third line, but the 10-game suspension to Clarkson boosts his value for the first few weeks.
