Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Bob McCulley
Bob McCulley was used both as a forward and on defense. His resiliency was certainly deemed an asset by those who coached him as he was able to fill in where needed. And, at just over six feet and almost 200 pounds, he was an intimidating force for opponents to have to deal with.

He played with the Stratford Midgets before joining the OHA's Oshawa Generals in 1931-32. He then had a two-year association with the Providence Reds before moving on to the New Haven Eagles, also of the Can-Pro league. In 1934-35 he played his one NHL game with the Montreal Canadiens.

McCulley played hockey for another seven years, most of which was divided between the Can-Pro league and then the IAHL. His final year in hockey was in 1941-42 when he played for both the AHL's Providence Reds and the AHA's Minneapolis Millers.
