Memorable Manitobans: Adolf “Aggie” Kukulowicz (1933-2008)

Hockey player, translator.

Born in Winnipeg on 2 April 1933, he played for the Winnipeg Maroons and briefly for the New York Rangers in the National Hockey League. During the hockey series between Team Canada and the Soviets in the 1970s, he served as a Russian interpreter. He became friends with Igor Larionov and Sergei Makarov. He was inducted into the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame as a member of the Maroons and, in 2004, given the Paul Loicq Award from the International Ice Hockey Federation. He died on 26 September 2008.
