Cullen Takes His Three Cups To Retirement

Another Huskies great hangs up the skates this off-season.

Matt Cullen announced via Twitter today that he is officially calling it quits after 21 years patrolling NHL rinks. He finishes second all-time in American-born games played at 1,516. He racked up 266 goals and 465 assists for 731 points.

Cullen is from Moorhead, Minnesota and committed to the Huskies right out of high school. He donned the cardinal and black from 1995-1997 racking up 27 goals and 59 assists for 86 points, leaving after his sophomore season for Anaheim, the team that drafted him 35th overall in 1996.

Cullen won three Stanley Cups, one with Carolina in 2006 and two back-to-back with Pittsburgh in 2016 and 2017.

He finishes as one of the all-time greats of hockey to be born in the US.
