Defenceman Dmitry Kulikov has been out of the Jets lineup since a game against the Ducks back on November 29th. It was originally projected that he would return around the All-Star break at the end of this month however today Jets PR announced that he has been activated. He has been out of the lineup for 19 games.
Expectation is he will play his first one tonight in Boston. The question becomes who does he come in for? Will it be Bitetto, Niku or Sbisa? Jets bench boss Paul Maurice is scheduled to speak at 3:30 pm CST.
