Future Watch: Karson Kuhlman Rookie Hockey Cards, BruinsFuture Watch: Karson Kuhlman Rookie Hockey Cards, BruinsKarson Kuhlman was signed by the Boston Bruins as a free agent in 2018. He was a star in Minnesota while attending Cloquet High school and then he wasn’t drafted so he worked hard until he was eventually signed.

Kuhlman rose to prominence while playing for the University of Minnesota-Duluth. In his first year, the winger had 18 points in 40 games during the 2014-15 season. In the next two seasons his points only went up incrementally, but he was still an important piece on a good team. In 2016-17 that team won the Frozen Four.

In 2017-18, he became more of a focal point on the team and he had 13 goals and 20 points in 44 games. That’s when the Bruins signed him, and he got to play in two regular-season games and one postseason game in Providence.

In 2018-19, he played in 58 games in the AHL scoring 30 points and 12 goals. He then got to play with the Bruins. The versatile forward had three goals and five points in the regular season, and he got to play in the postseason. After a stretch of games where he couldn’t crack the roster, he did get into the Stanley Cup. In all, he had a goal and three assists in eight games as the Bruins went on a run but fell just short. He scored in Game Six while his team was facing elimination against the eventual champion, the St. Louis Blues. What a season!

Collectors can get his Young Guns rookie in 2019-20 Upper Deck Series 1 Hockey, and other rookie cards in Black Diamond, MVP, Parkhurst and O-Pee-Chee to name a few.

Here’s a look at his Cup goal:

In 2019-20, he made the team and has played in the NHL and AHL. A fractured leg put him on the shelf after just 10 games combined. He’s only 24 and should have an impact in the NHL very soon.
