Mean, hard to play against, right in your face, don't mess around, this kind of player. I also have the skills to make the pretty plays.- Kirill Tulupov
How would you describe yourself Ė what kind of person are you?

Iím an open-hearted person. I am really kind to people and friendly. Donít mess with me though, because it wonít end up well because I can be mean. Though my boiling point off ice is not too high, itís better not to test it for Iíll be the one winning. There is no doubt about that. I donít know. I like to smile. Iím really positive and hard-working. I have a drive.

Seems to be a big fan favourite down in OKC. I love teddy Peckham but if he doesn't continue to improve I would love to see this beasty. Seems to be my kind of player. Thoughts?????

No. He has problems at the AHL level, doubt he is in this organization next year.

Longer term prospect?? or never gonna make it???

Every time I read an interview, his passion for the game and the training he goes through really makes me pull for him.

Anyone that gets to watch him on a regular basis, I would love to here a report on this guy.

Anyway back to the topic. My thoughts are, any team making a cup run needs this kind of toughness/meanness. Teddy had it last year which had me pumped. I thought he was going to be that part of the puzzle but now I'm wondering.

I like what he brings, but I don't think we have room next year. He's been a healthy scratch in OKC, so that would lead me to believe he isn't making the NHL anytime soon.

He could be a decent NHler some day, but the Oil will probably be bringing up some of their prospects from junior this year.

As for a link to him check out the OKC thread in the stickies. There is some comments on him.

He is a fan favourite IMO mostly for his great attitude off the ice and his occasional penchant for going a little berserk on the ice.

But besides that he needs some work and has been a healthy scratch many times this year at the AHL level. So I would say he has a ways to go yet before he would be an NHL regular.

Also they signed him to only an AHL contract. So he is free to sign wherever he wants next season. So the Oil will have to offer a 2 way NHL contract first for that to be a possibility.

Tubert is tough, but not mean. I don't think that he's the kind of player that really scares anyone. Last year anyone entering Peckham's space knew they were either get around him or they were going to pay for attempting it.

His skating from the preseason was better than I thought it would be. I'd be surprised if Teubert is that much more ready than he is.

I believe the scratches were due to contract issues. I don't think he'll be ready next year, but he appears to have a ton of tools that just need to be harnessed.

Is this the former NJ devil prospect? If so I have heard nothing but good things about him as being a dark horse suprise for the oilers

I wouldn't mind retaining him at the AHL level, but if he's on our NHL roster next season we are in for a world of hurt.

I hope this kid becomes a NHL product. He's everything the Oilers need to product our assets(the kid). No one currently on the Oilers is mean and punishing like him. This kid makes people pay.

Correct. He's supposedly built like a **** brick house. I think the biggest knock on him was gap control and foot speed, both of which can be handled with time and development.

Yaa, they call him Kirill "The Tulip" Tulupov. The team deserves a dark horse surprise. . I really miss the Peckham of yester year on this team....he was so entertaining. Like Hall, guys like this can change a games flow, and energy. Eager is doing a pretty good filling the role, but isn't showing his nasty side enough.

I thought Tupulov would have been a bigger factor this year in the AHL... but he's only played in 25 out of 50+ games so I assume he's not been impressive enough to win a regular job down there.

He leads OKC in PIM pergame and has been a +6 on the season so I assume he's a reasonably solid defensive player with toughness which is what he was billed to bring in.

I don't know if he is even in the Oilers future plans after this season but I agree at the NHL level, a 6th/7th dman who is decent defensively and has some genuine bite to his game is what's needed.

Problem is the Oilers have Sutton/Peckham/Teubert who are basically similar types of players so Tulupov is probably buried too deep down in the prospect pipeline and will never see the light of day at the NHL level.

No this is a fairly common misconception. He only missed the two games in Canada early in the season due to visa issues. He missed some games due to injury and suspension. But make no mistake he has also been a healthy scratch a number of times.




Edit - The Barons are playing right now. Kirill Tulupv is playing forward on the RW with Ryan Martindale and Tristan Grant.

He was recently called up because Hunter Tremblay suffered a concussion in a game last week. Tonight was his 3rd game in the AHL this season, so he's not a permanent fix in the AHL.
