March 10--Mike Bullard

Mike Bullard

Selected by Pittsburgh Penguins round 1 #9 overall 1980 NHL Entry Draft

Bullard made his NHL debut with the Pens at the end of the 1980-81 season. His return the following year marked the start of a very solid five plus seasons in Pittsburgh highlighted by exceeding the 30-goal plateau three times, including a career-high 51 markers in 1983-84.
Bullard was traded to the Calgary Flames midway through the 1986-87 season. The following year, he put up the best numbers of his career, 108 points in one season. But the Flames saw a chance to pry Doug Gilmour away from the Blues, so they used Bullard as collateral.
But he lasted only 20 games in St. Louis before being dispatched to the Flyers where he continued to put up solid numbers. In 1990, however, he decided to try his hand at playing hockey in Switzerland. He liked the experience although the NHL always remained his top priority. So when an opening surfaced with the Leafs, he was quick to traverse the Atlantic for one final season in the big leagues.
After a flat campaign in Toronto, though, Bullard left the NHL for good to pursue a lengthy career in Switzerland and Germany

Mike Bullard was named Coach of the Year (11/12) after leading the Brantford Golden Eagles to a first-place finish during the regular season in the Greater Ontario Junior 'B' Hockey League.
