Matthew "Matt" Cullen (born November 2, 1976 in Virginia, Minnesota) is a professional ice hockey center who currently plays for the Carolina Hurricanes of the NHL. He is the older brother of Manitoba Moose player Mark Cullen.

Playing CareerEdit

Cullen graduated from Moorhead Senior High School in 1995. His father Terry Cullen was the high school hockey coach. He played for the St. Cloud State Huskies from 1995–1997 and was named to the WCHA All-Rookie Team in 1995 and WCHA All-Star in 1996. He was drafted 35th overall by the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in the 1996 NHL Entry Draft.

Cullen won his first Stanley Cup with the Carolina Hurricanes in 2006. After the 2006 season, he became an unrestricted free agent and signed a 4 year contract with the Rangers. After just one season with the Rangers, Cullen was traded back to Carolina during the 2006–2007 off season in exchange for defenceman Andrew Hutchinson, forward Joe Barnes and a third round pick in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, in an attempt to free up salary.

During the NHL lockout of 2004-05, Cullen led the Italian league in scoring while playing for Cortina, finishing with 27 goals and 33 assists in 36 games.

On February 22, 2009 Cullen scored the first hat trick of his career in a game against the Colorado Avalanche.
