WINNIPEG Luke Glendening Jersey , Manitoba (AP) One minute Dmitry Kulikov was feeling fine, the next moment he wasn’t.And now the Winnipeg Jets‘ defenseman will undergo back surgery and miss at least eight weeks.Jets coach Paul Maurice said it was the same injury Kulikov suffered last season while with the Buffalo Sabres.Kulikov was hurt while taking a shot during Winnipeg’s 3-2 victory over New Jersey on March 8. After the inflammation went down, it was decided the nine-year veteran’s best option was to fix the problem through surgery.”It’s tough for him,” Maurice said. ”Maybe it helped that it just happened so he didn’t have to deal with it for three weeks and agonize whether he should be playing or not.”He felt good. He took a shot and then all of a sudden he didn’t feel good. Very difficult for him in that he’s been through it (before).”Winnipeg picked up the unrestricted free agent last July 1, signing the Russian to a three-year contract. He’d played seven seasons with Florida Martin Frk Jersey , but only 47 games with Buffalo after hurting his back when he was hit into an open door during a preseason game.Kulikov has been a steady force with the Jets, totaling three goals and eight assists in 62 games.Maurice said an update on the 27-year-old will come in eight weeks during the NHL playoffs.”Hopefully, we’re still playing hockey when he’s ready to play,” Maurice said.The injury-plagued Jets, who began the day second in the Central Division http://www.redwingsshoponline.com/authentic-mike-green-jersey , did have something good to report on a trio of players.Defenseman Toby Enstrom and center Mark Scheifele and Adam Lowry could all return when Winnipeg hosts Dallas on Sunday. All three were full participants in practice Saturday and it’s a matter of seeing how they feel Sunday morning, Maurice said.Scheifele took a blindside hit from defenseman Tyler Myers during a 5-on-5 drill.”(Myers) was doing a great job at making sure I’m feeling good,” Scheifele said with a wry smile.Scheifele has missed five straight games after a ”fluky collision” with teammate Blake Wheeler in a March 6 game against the New York Rangers. He confirmed it wasn’t the same upper-body injury that kept him out for 16 games earlier this season.Lowry has missed 19 games with an upper-body injury, while Enstrom has been out four games after blocking a shot in practice. DETROIT (AP) Chris Ilitch is the first to admit that it hasn’t been business as usual for the Detroit Red Wings the past couple of seasons, but he’s confident the man to bring them back to the glory days is the man they currently have in charge.The Red Wings’ governor announced Saturday the club had agreed to a new two-year contract with general manager Ken Holland.”Around these parts Womens Nick Jensen Jersey , we’re used to be being in the playoffs, we’re used to competing for Stanley Cups, and believe me, that’s where we all want to be,” Ilitch said. ”That’s a lot of fun. To get back there Thomas Vanek Jersey , it’s a process. We’ve done it before and we’re going to do it again.”We think Ken is the right guy to lead that for our organization, so we’re thrilled to have him back.”Detroit’s 25-year run of consecutive postseason appearances came to an end in 2015-16 and the Red Wings have missed the playoffs the past two seasons. They entered their final game of the season on Saturday against the New York Islanders 27th overall in the NHL with a 30-39-12 record.Still, Ilitch pointed to Holland’s performance as both a scout and the team’s director of scouting as the Red Wings assembled the talent pool that won four Stanley Cups between 1997-2008 as an indication that Holland can mastermind the current rebuild.”Ken Holland has had the experience of seeing a Detroit Red Wings team in the 1980s build from the ground all the way up to the Stanley Cup champion,” Ilitch said. ”That’s the blueprint for our future and Ken knows that.”Holland has traded to restructure the team and holds an NHL-high 11 picks in the upcoming entry draft.”I understand there’s a big challenge ahead here going forward,” Holland said. ”I look forward to the challenge of rebuilding the Detroit Red Wings.”Holland indicated that he would address the future of coach Jeff Blashill on Tuesday when the Wings have scheduled their locker cleanout day.
