In six games this year, Kulikov has one assist. He played in 62 games last season before suffering a back injury that he had been dealing with since his time with the Buffalo Sabers.

The Jets are also expected to call up a defenceman from the Manitoba Moose in time for Sunday’s game against the New Jersey Devils.
