CALGARY, AB - FEBRUARY 13: Brett Kulak /

With 61 days left until the regular season starts up again, let’s take a look at a Calgary Flames player with that number.

Since the start of August, we’re counting down the number of days left until the regular season starts up again! Everyday until the start of the season, we’ll be talking about a Calgary Flames player whose number correlates with how many days there are left.

We missed yesterday because we can’t do anything right, apparently. But last time we talked about #63 Sam Bennett! All the players so far that we’ve been looking at are still active players within the Flames organization. And today is no different!

With 61 days left until the regular season, let’s look at #61 Brett Kulak.

Stats with minor teams, Regular Season:

As we can see, Kulak doesn’t spend a whole lot of time with the big club. This season however, Calgary Flames fans are somewhat confident in more defence prospects getting a shot at the NHL, including Kulak.

Kulak made his NHL debut two seasons ago on April 11th, 2015 (the same day Bennett had his NHL debut!). He had no points that game in the 5-1 loss to the Winnipeg Jets, but he had two PIM.

This past season was when he spent the most amount of time with the NHL. As you can see above, he played in 21 games this past season. He has still yet to record his first NHL goal. Actually, in one game this past season that I remember watching, it seemed as though he scored a goal. But unfortunately, they ended up changing who scored that goal.

So no goal for him.

Kulak just played in his last season on his two-way, three-year ELC, so him and Flames are currently working out some kinks to finalize a contract for him (hopefully). After signing his contract in 2014, he spent the first bit of his season down in the ECHL before being called up to the AHL, and the rest is history from there.
