Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jassen Cullimore
Cullimore began his ascent to the NHL playing Junior C hockey with the Caledonia Corvairs and the Simcoe Rams. In 1988-89, he played 29 Junior B games for the Peterborough B's and 20 major junior games for the OHL's Peterborough Petes. In 1989-90, he scored eight points in 59 games as an OHL rookie. The following season, he improved to 24 points and in 1991-92, Cullimore scored 46 points and was named an OHL Second Team All-Star.

The second round, 29th overall selection of the Vancouver Canucks in the 1991 NHL Entry Draft, Cullimore made his professional debut with the AHL's Hamilton Canucks in 1992-93 before making his NHL debut with Vancouver in 1994-95. After receiving spot duty on the Canucks' defense in 1996-97, Cullimore was traded to the Montreal Canadiens for enforcer Donald Brashear.

Cullimore's stay in Montreal was short-lived, as he was claimed on waivers by the Tampa Bay Lightning in 1997-98 and was a solid blueliner with the team for seven seasons, helping the Bolts' capture the Stanley Cup in 2003-04. After helping the Lightning win their first Stanley Cup, Cullimore signed as a free-agent with the Chicago Blackhawks in the summer of 2004.

Over a pair of seasons with the Hawks, Cullimore competed in 118 games and helped provide veteran leadership on a youthful Blackhawk line-up. In the summer of 2007, he was dealt with Tony Salmelainen to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for Sergei Samsonov.
