Defenseman Hy Buller played five NHL seasons in the 1940s and '50s. He was a fine passer who could also deliver jolting bodychecks and play with a chip on his shoulder in his own zone.

The Montreal native played junior with the Saskatoon Quakers then turned pro with the EHL's New York Rovers in 1942-43. Buller was outstanding and named to the league's second all-star team. He played a handful of games for the Detroit Red Wings during World War II but spent the better part of eight years in the AHL.

"The Blueline Blaster" helped the Hershey Bears win the Calder Cup in 1947 and was a member of the Cleveland Barons' championship squads in 1948 and 1951. Buller returned to the NHL with the New York Rangers in 1951-52. He was outstanding in his first big league season, scoring 35 points, delivering a host of thunderous hits and earning a place on the NHL second all-star team. Buller was also picked to play in the NHL All-star game. He played two more years with the Blueshirts then suited up with the WHL's Saskatoon Quakers before retiring in 1954.
