2018 Fantasy Outlook
Although Kukan only played in 11 games last season, he made enough of an impression on the Blue Jackets that they locked him up with a one-way, two-year deal in March -- all but assuring him a spot on the NHL roster. He's shown a little offensive acumen in the AHL, but his role with the big club will likely be that of a stay-at-home defender who uses his passing skills and sharp hockey IQ to clear the defensive zone with a minimum of fuss. Jack Johnson's departure does open up some minutes on the blue line, but the 25-year-old Kukan will have to fight off challenges from players with bigger prospect pedigrees such as Gabriel Carlsson to win a regular shift.

Collects first points of campaign

Kukan notched two even-strength assists in Tuesday's 6-3 win over Colorado.
ANALYSIS
Kukan's two helpers were his first and second points in the 2018-19 campaign. The 25-year-old has been stuck in a depth role through 11 games on the Columbus blue line, accumulating 12:46 time on ice per game. With no power-play time and limited ice time overall, this game doesn't change the fact that Kukan is still irrelevant in fantasy.
