Panthers defenseman Kulikov suspended 4 games
NEW YORK (AP) — The NHL has suspended Russian defenseman Dmitry Kulikov four games for clipping Dallas Stars forward Tyler Seguin.
The incident occurred at 13:05 of the third period of the Stars’ 2-0 win over the Florida Panthers on Friday. Kulikov went low and hit Seguin on his right knee just after the Dallas forward entered the offensive zone.
Kulikov was assessed a major penalty for clipping and a game misconduct.
The Stars announced that the team’s leading scorer will miss 3 to 6 weeks with a right knee injury.
Kulikov will forfeit more than $93,000 in salary.
