Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Arnie Kullman
Centre Arnie Kullman was an offensively skilled player who only appeared for 13 games in the NHL with Boston. Although his big league dreams never came true, he was one of the most consistent skaters in the AHL during the 1950s.

Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Kullman played junior with the hometown Rangers and the Brandon Elks of the MJHL. In 1946-47 he scored 44 points in 28 games for the OHA's Stratford Kroehlers. The next year he made his NHL debut by suiting up once for the Boston Bruins but spent most of his time with the parent club's entries in the QSHL and EHL. In 1948-49 he registered 56 points in 66 contests for the AHL's Hershey Bears. He received a 12-game look by the Bruins in 1949-50 but was sent back to Hershey.

Kullman played the entire 1950s with the Hershey Bears and helped the team win consecutive Calder Cups in 1958 and 1959. He reached the 20-goal mark six teams and enjoyed four seasons of at least 60 points. Kullman retired in 1960 with over 250 career goals in the AHL.
