Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Floyd Hillman
Defenceman Floyd Hillman played six games for the Boston Bruins in 1956-57. He was a top amateur player who enjoyed a successful pro career in the minors.

Born in Ruthven, Ontario, Hillman played junior with the Oshawa Generals and Kitchener Greenshirts before joining the senior Windsor Bulldogs in 1954-55. The next year he split his rookie pro season between the WHL's Victoria Cougars and the Hershey Bears of the AHL.

After his brief spell with Boston in 1956-57, Hillman spent most of two years with the Quebec Aces of the QHL. In 1957 he was a key member of the club when it finished at the top of the Quebec League standings then won the playoff championship. Over the next four years he worked chiefly in the AHL where he was one of the hardest hitters in the league. The veteran rearguard spent two years with the Windsor Bulldogs before retiring in 1964.
