Playing career[edit]

A product of the University of North Dakota,[1] Ulmer turned pro in 1999, joining the Houston Aeros of the IHL. During the 2000–01 NHL season, he played 21 games for the New York Rangers, scoring three goals. Ulmer moved to Europe in 2003, splitting the 2003–04 campaign between the Cardiff Devils of the Elite Ice Hockey League in the United Kingdom and Lukko of the SM-liiga in Finland. He returned to North America in 2004, spending the season with the Hershey Bears of the American Hockey League before returning to Europe, moving to Germany's Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL) with the Hamburg Freezers.

After one season with Hamburg, he moved to fell DEL side Frankfurt Lions for a two-year spell. In 2008, he signed with HC Dinamo Minsk of the new Kontinental Hockey League and was later on 14 October 2008 loaned out for two months to Swiss HC Fribourg-Gottéron. On November 24, 2008, he signed with Modo Hockey of the Swedish Elitserien. On May 11, 2009, Ulmer rejoined the Frankfurt Lions. At the end of the 2009–10 season however, the Lions ceased operations due to increased financial difficulties. Ulmer signed with Metallurg Novokuznetsk in the KHL.

On December 6, Ulmer signed on with Linköpings HC of the Swedish Elitserien. On July 26, 2011, Ulmer announced he had returned to the German DEL with the DEG Metro Stars on a one-year contract. In 2012-13, he played in Finnland (Tappara) and Switzerland (Lausanne HC).

Midway into the 2013–14 season, he transferred from HDD Olimpija Ljubljana to establish himself at fellow EBEL club, Innsbruck. Ulmer agreed to a one-year extension on January 23, 2014[2] and then in March 2015, he had his contract renewed for the 2015-16 season.[3]

As a free agent the following year, Ulmer left the EBEL and signed a contract with Scottish club, Braehead Clan who play in the EIHL for the forthcoming 2016–17 season on July 19, 2016.[4] Ulmer parted company with Braehead in October 2016 by mutual consent[5] and joined the Frederikshavn White Hawks of Metal Ligaen in Denmark for a try-out a couple of days later.[6] He inked a deal with the Frederikshavn outfit for the remainder of the 2016-17 season in early November.[7]
