Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Alexander Nikulin
Alexander Nikulin was born August 25, 1985 in Perm, Russia. The fourth round, 122nd overall selection by the Ottawa Senators in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, Nikulin honed his skills in Russia with CSKA Moscow.

A strong passing forward, Nikulin's last season in Russia was spent in Moscow where the 61 centreman comfortably managed 16 points in 33 games. He made the leap across the pond the following year and competed with the Senators' AHL affiliate in Binghamton, New York. That season, Nikulin scored 14 goals and 36 assists, ranked third in team scoring, and was called up for a pair of NHL regular season games with Ottawa.

Nikulin reported back to the Senators AHL affiliate in Binghamton the following season, but was shortly after dealt by the club to the Phoenix Coyotes.

On the international stage, Nikulin represented Russia at the 2004-05 World Junior Championships.
