Kuhlman is 5’10”, 190 lbs, 26 years old, and a native of Esko, MN. He was signed by the Bruins as a college free agent out of the University of Minnesota-Duluth on April 10, 2018. He played at Minnesota for four years where he was an assistant captain in 2015-16 and 2016-17, and he was team captain in 2017-18. He accrued 80 points (39 goals, 41 assists) in 166 games with the Bulldogs.
After signing with the Bruins he played 75 games over parts of four seasons with the AHL Providence Bruins, amassing 40 points (19 goals, 21 assists). He also played 91 games with the NHL Bruins in those four seasons, scoring 19 points (8 goals, 11 assists).
Kuhlman is listed as a “strong forechecker and penalty killer”, who comes with NHL playoff experience and will add bottom-six depth to the Kraken lineup.
The Kraken will host the Chicago Blackhawks today in a rare matinee game. The puck drop is scheduled for 2:00 P.M. PST.
