Dmitry Kulikov Profile
Dmitry KulikovHt/Wt: 6' 1"/195 lbs
Team: Drummondville (QMJHL)
Dmitry Kulikov's Player ProfileDmitri Kulikov is a smooth skating, poised defenseman who will only get better with age. He racked up 62 points (12g+50a) in only 57 games, as he missed time play for team Russia in the WJC. At only 17 he moved from his native Russia to play in the QMJHL for Drumondville and the move has done wonders for his draft ranking. His biggest strengths are his flawless puck moving, his skating and his awareness at both ends of the ice. This kid has very few weaknesses but he could certainly be more physical, but to do that he needs to put on some muscle, as he is listed as 6-1, 190. Scouts love this kid because they know exactly what they will get from him, a smart, slick defenseman that will be a top 4 defenseman for years to come.
