CareerEdit

Cunningham began his professional career in 1995 in the ECHL with the Mobile Mysticks. He then moved to the Central Hockey League a year later and split the year with the Fort Worth Fire and the Memphis Riverkings. It was with the Riverkings where Cunningham began to excel, scoring 33 goals and 38 assists for 71 points. He moved to the West Coast Hockey League in 1997 with spells with the Tucson Gila Monsters and the Anchorage Aces. He played 95 games for the Aces over two seasons, scoring 49 goals and 48 assists for 97 points.[1]

Cunningham spent the next two seasons playing for five different teams in the United Hockey League, playing for the Saginaw/Ohio Gears, Adirondack IceHawks, Muskegon Fury, Mohawk Valley Prowlers and the Elmira Jackals. Of the five teams, his best spell came with the IceHawks, where he scored 20 points and 20 assists for 40 points in 42 games. In 2001, Cunningham returned to the Anchorage Aces of the WCHL where he had yet another high scoring season, scoring 29 goals and 37 assists for 66 points.[1]

In 2002, Cunningham went back to his native Quebec, joining the Laval Chiefs of the Quebec Semi-Pro Hockey League where he had the highest scoring season of his career, scoring 40 goals and 32 assists for 72 points in 52 games. He had short spells in the ECHL with the Texas Wildcatters, Greenville Grrrowl and the Mississippi Sea Wolves before returning to the Laval Chiefs in 2004, who were now playing in the Ligue Nord-Américaine de Hockey, renamed from the Quebec Semi-Pro Hockey League.[2] During his spell with the Chiefs, the team were filming a documentary about the team's enforcers (Les Chiefs 2004), written and directed by Jason Gileno. The documentary chronicled the lives of five of the players. Although Cunningham was not interviewed, his name appeared under Special Thanks in the movie's credits. He split the 2005–06 seasons with 13 games for the Chiefs, 19 games in the ECHL for the Pensacola Ice Pilots and 13 games for the San Diego Gulls of the same league.[1]

He returned for one game in the CHL for the Odessa Jackalopes during the 2007–08 season before retiring.
