Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Justin Kurtz
Justin Kurtz was born January 14, 1977 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The 4th choice, 84th overall selection of the Winnipeg Jets in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft, Kurtz is a graduate of the Western Hockey League's Brandon Wheat Kings.

After spending four seasons with the Wheat Kings where he was an Eastern Conference Second Team All-Star on defense in 1996-97, the Winnipeg, Manitoba native split his first year of professional hockey in 1997-98 with the IHL's Las Vegas Thunder and the AHL's Saint-John Flames before signing with the IHL's Manitoba Moose as a free agent in 1998-99.

Kurtz has spent the past four seasons solidifying the Manitoba blue line while playing in a handful of games with the ECHL's Louisiana Ice Gators during the 1998-99 season before making his NHL debut with the Vancouver Canucks during the 2001-02 season. Kurtz has since returned to the AHLs Manitoba Moose.
