Dmitry Kulikov is back in Sunrise, ready to face former Florida Panthers teammates

‘“It’s not that big of a deal now, but it will probably be a little emotional when I get out on the ice for warmups, see all the fans. I don’t think it will be weird playing against them, we played them earlier in the season and half the team is different now. Just playing in this building will be fun but somewhat emotional.”’

Panthers welcome back Dmitry Kulikov, who’s off to rough start with Sabres
