82 Belleville Bulls Grads Still Actively Playing in 2011-12

Only three times since their inaugural Ontario Hockey League season in 1981-82 have the Belleville Bulls finished out of the Robertson Cup playoffs. One of those three was their first year in the league. This is a club that consistently produces competitive teams and professional hockey players. The team is off to a playoff bound start in 2011-12, playing just over .500 hockey.

This number includes those playing in the Canadian university system. This number does not include a handful of players that will be most likely find their way onto a roster before the season is to old.

Belleville Bulls are playing in eleven different countries throughout the world: U.S.A., Canada, Denmark, Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Great Britain (England and Scotland), Russia, Italy, Slovakia and Sweden. These grads can be found in 20 different leagues with 13 playing the top level (NHL). The 20 players on Canadian university teams says so much about the CHL’s scholarship program.

Richard Park started with the Bulls in 1992 and played through 1996. He is currently playing for the Pittsburgh Penguins of the National Hockey League. I believe he is the oldest active Belleville Bull actively playing pro.
