Dmitry Kulikov doesn't want to think about the freak injury that plagued him last year.
Kulikov injured his back in the preseason when he took a hit from Toronto's Colin Greening and fell into the open door of the players' bench. The back injury bothered him throughout the season. "Definitely, I’m trying not to think about that a lot," said Kulikov. "It just takes you out of your rhythm when you play 10 games and miss 20 and then play 10 and miss 20. You don’t get into a rhythm. You don’t get familiar with the system. Mentally, it’s hard because it’s always on your mind, that injury bugging you on a daily basis. A lot of the times it was frustrating during the season, having to go through rehab and then it happens again, going to rehab and it happens again. You just kind of couldn’t break that cycle, so that was the toughest part." Kulikov signed a three-year, $13 million contract with Winnipeg this off-season. The Jets are his third team in three years (Panthers, Sabres). Sep 3 - 6:05 PM
