According to Miller, the 2022 fourth-round draft pick condition is that if the Oilers win a playoff round this year, the selection will turn into a third-round pick.
Per @GMillerTSN, Kulikov to EDM is done. NJ gets a conditional fourth-round pick this year that becomes a third-round pick if EDM wins a playoff round.
