Kevin Czuczman (born January 9, 1991) is a current Canadian ice hockey player, currently under contract with the Minnesota Wild. Undrafted at the NHL level, Czuczman spent three seasons with Lake Superior State University of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, building up his stock by working on his two-way play while also contributing offensively. In his final season with Lake Superior State, he registered 21 points and 73 penalty minutes in 36 games. His stellar play earned him a two-year entry-level contract with the New York Islanders, who immediately inserted him into the lineup. In 13 games, he registered two assists and finished the season with a minus-5 rating and 14 penalty minutes.
After one more year with the Islanders, Czuczman signed a one-year deal with the Manitoba Moose, the American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate of the Winnipeg Jets. Representing the team as an alternate captain, he amassed 32 points in 76 games. He signed the following season with the Pittsburgh Penguins, solely for the purpose of filling a spot with their AHL affiliate. Signing multiple one-year deals, Czuczman played three full years with the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, serving as their alternate captain each year. In his final year with the organization, he appeared in two games with Pittsburgh, registering no points and a minus-3 rating.
In the summer of 2021, Czuczman signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Wild, and spent the season in the AHL. In 48 games, he registered two goals and eight assists. With Iowa missing the playoffs, finishing 6th place in the Central Division, Czuczman was called up by Minnesota to be part of the Black Aces.
