Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Dale Kushner
Dale Kushner was a feisty right-winger who contributed on offence by driving to the net and working hard in the corners. He played 84 games with the New York Islanders and Philadelphia Flyers in the early 1990s and later played in the AHL and IHL.

Born in Terrace, British Columbia, Kushner played with the Fort McMurray Oil Barons of the AJHL before joining the WHL with the Prince Albert Raiders late in 1983-84. He then moved on to play for the Moose Jaw Warriors and Medicine Hat Tigers. In 1987 he scored 21 points in 20 games while helping the Tigers win the Memorial Cup. Following the victory he was named to the tournament all-star team.

Kushner was signed as a free agent by the Islanders in April 1987. He played mostly with the Springfield Indians of the AHL in his first three pro seasons and also dressed for two games with the big club in 1989-90.

In July 1990 Kushner signed as free agent with the Philadelphia Flyers and played 63 games the next year. He then became a farmhand the next year making 19 appearances for the Flyers. Kushner retired in 1996 after playing three years in the AHL and one last season with the Michigan K-Wings of the IHL.
