Kevin Czuczman (Pron. CHURCH-mehn) (born January 9, 1991) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman. He is currently under contract to the Manitoba Moose of the American Hockey League (AHL).

Playing career[edit]

Undrafted, Czuczman attended Lake Superior State University where he played three seasons with the Lake Superior State Lakers men's ice hockey team.

On March 11, 2014, the New York Islanders signed Czuczman as a free agent to a two-year, entry-level deal,[1] and he made his NHL debut one week later, on March 18, 2014, playing just over 20 minutes in a 6–0 loss to the visiting Minnesota Wild.[2][3]

At the conclusion of his entry-level contract with the Islanders following the 2015–16 season, Czuczman's rights were not retained by the Islanders, releasing him to free agency. Unable to attract an NHL contract, he agreed to a one-year deal to continue in the AHL with the Manitoba Moose, an affiilate to the Winnipeg Jets on August 30, 2016.[4]
