Team: Florida Panthers
Another Florida defensemen the Bruins may look at is Dmitry Kulikov. At just 23, Kulikov is in his fifth NHL season, all with Florida. He has played 289 games for the Panthers, scoring 22 goals and adding 70 assists, while averaging more than 20 minutes of ice time per game in his career. This season, he played 49 games before the break, scoring six goals and tallying six assists.
Kulikov is a restricted free agent but could be available for the right price. His youth may not be what the Bruins are looking for; however, his status as an RFA could net the Bruins a draft pick if they were to rent him, extend a minimal qualifying offer, then lose him to another team.
