Panthers re-sign Kulikov to 2-year deal

The Florida Panthers have brought free agent defenseman Dmitry Kulikov back into the fold.

On Thursday, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported the deal to be for two years, but did not reveal financial terms.

The 22-year-old, a first-round pick of Florida in 2009, has totaled 13 goals and 70 points in 198 games over his three-year NHL career, all with the Panthers.

Kulikov spent the NHL lockout skating for Lokomotiv in Russia's Kontinental Hockey League.
