Winnipeg Jets defenceman Dmitry Kulikov will be sidelined until the NHL All-Star break with an upper-body injury, head coach Paul Maurice told reporters Tuesday.

Kulikov was forced from last Friday’s 3-0 win over the Anaheim Ducks and didn’t dress for their 2-1 loss to the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday.

The 29-year-old has four points in 25 games for the Jets this season, his third with the club.

Kulikov has collected 138 points over 460 NHL games, also spent with the Buffalo Sabres and the Florida Panthers.
