Career Summary

Bob Pulford played 112 games with the Toronto Marlboros between the 1954-55 and 1955-56 hockey seasons, scoring fifty-nine (59) goals and fifty-six (56) assists with the team in the regular season, and eighteen (18) goals and twelve (12) assists in the playoffs.  In fact, during his 3 seasons with the Marlboros, he won back-to-back Memorial Cups!

Pulford was moved to the Toronto Maple Leafs after the 1956 Memorial Cup win where he played for 14 seasons and won 4 Stanley Cups.  During Game 3 of the 1967 Stanley Cup playoffs, Pulford scored one of the most important goals in Toronto Maple Leafs history when he put the puck past Rogie Vachon of the Montreal Canadiens at 8:26 in the second overtime period.  In 1970, Pulford was traded to Los Angeles where he played with the Kings for the last two (2) seasons of his playing career.  Gordie Howe once said, "Pulford is one of my private headaches, because he has to be classed as one of hockey's greatest forecheckers”.

In 1972, Pulford moved behind the bench for the Kings where he remained until 1977, when he moved behind the bench of Chicago Blackhawks until 2000.

In 1974-75, Bob Pulford was awarded the Jack Adams Award while coaching the Los Angeles Kings.

In 1991, Pulford was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in the Player category.
