March, 2013 - Culkin's numbers in junior have popped big time, but much of that is the result of teammate Mikhail Grigorenko's crazy first half. Grigs is up with the Sabres now, so Culkin's numbers have corrected. - Dobber


November, 2012 – Ryan Culkin is a two-way defenseman who is a good skater. He has improved every year since entering the QMJHL and has taken a giant leap forward this year with 16 points in 16 games to go along with a plus-10 rating. What the future holds for Culkin remains to be seen, but his responsible defensive play along with the newly-found scoring touch makes him an intriguing prospect in the years to come. There will certainly be opportunities to move up the depth chart in Calgary.



Fantasy Outlook: D+


Does not have huge upside, but is worth keeping an eye on as he gains more experience.

Not exactly Just want to point out a major innacuracy in your review.
As a Remparts fan, I have watched his progression all season. Little of it was tied to Grigorenko's performance as Culkin spent the better part of the first half of the season on the 2nd power play line (Grigo was first line, naturally), and actually had his most successful point streak (12 points in 11 games) in February 2013 while Grigo was hanging out with the Sabres.
Just wanted to point that out.
