The Edmonton Oilers acquired defenseman Dmitry Kulikov from the New Jersey Devils on Monday in exchange for a conditional fourth-round pick in the 2022 NHL Draft.

The conditional pick will become a third-round selection should the Oilers win a first-round series in the 2021 playoffs.

Kulikov, 30, recorded two assists and had 26 penalty minutes in 38 games this season after signing a one-year, $1.5 million contract in October. He will be an unrestricted free agent after the season.
