As of the 2017 season, Ulf is the assistant coach of the Chicago Blackhawks.  Ulf has been heavily involved with hockey throughout his entire career in both the playing and coaching aspects.

He started out playing the SEL as a teenager and eventually made his way into the NHL, being drafted by the Hartford Whalers in 1982.  While not known for his point production, he was the type of player to get things done and his physical presence.

Now Ulf is considered a “Legend of Hockey” and while may never make the HHOF, he’s exactly the type of player that all NHL teams need.  The unsung hero.  The dependable force.  The physical presence.  That’s what makes hockey so great, that every player brings a different skill set and can help a team ultimately win a Stanley Cup, which he did on back to back occasions with the Penguins in 1991 and 1992.
