On Monday Emelie and Dmitry Kulikov welcomed their second child on Monday.

Kulikov, defenceman for the Winnipeg Jets, was granted a personal leave of absence from the team. As a result, he missed last night's win against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Today, Kulikov and his wife announced the birth of their second child in Boca Raton, Florida.

Their oldest son, Maxton, is now two-years-old.
