Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Ted Bulley
Left-winger Ted Bulley spent eight years in the NHL with three different teams in the 1970s and '80s. He played a rugged style and stood his ground in front of the net which allowed him to score a fair number of goals.

The native of Windsor, Ontario played Tier II with his hometown Spitfires in 1972-73 then spent two years in the QMJHL with the Hull Festivals. He was chosen 115th overall by the Chicago Black Hawks in 1975 then spent a year in the IHL with the Flint Generals. Injuries ruined the 1976-77 for him but he returned to score 23 goals the next season.

The solid forward scored a personal-best 27 goals in 1978-79 playing on a line with Tom Lysiak and Tim Higgins. The next year, his totals dropped after the Hawks added depth by acquiring the likes of Rich Preston and Terry Ruskowski. He became more of a third line player for the Hawks and helped the club reach the semi-finals in 1982 before he was traded to the Washington Capitals. The goals stopped coming for Bulley as he found the back of the net only four times in 39 games for the Caps. He signed as a free agent with the Pittsburgh Penguins in August 1983 but only produced three goals in half a season. He retired in 1985 after spending nearly two years with the AHL's Baltimore Skipjacks.
