Panthers defenseman Kulikov suspended 4 games

NEW YORK (AP) — The NHL has suspended Florida Panthers 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 Florida 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.
