Norm Ullman began his career with the Edmonton Oil Kings of the WCJHL, before moving to the Edmonton Flyers of the WHL. He turned pro with the Detroit Red Wings of the National Hockey League in the 1955–56 NHL season.
He was renowned as an excellent stick handler, as well as one of the paramount forecheckers in hockey history - and for his stamina and consistency which was important centring a line with Gordie Howe and Ted Lindsay in only his second season with Detroit.
His career statistics rank him among the greatest centres to ever play in the NHL, with 490 career regular season goals and 739 assists for 1229 points. He had sixteen NHL seasons of 20 or more goals.
Ullman led Detroit in goals in 1961, 1965, and 1966 and led the league in 1964–65 with 42 goals. In that same season he missed the overall scoring title by 4 points, second to Stan Mikita, and was voted a first team All Star.
He appeared in eleven All Star games during his 20-year career and scored 30 goals and added 53 assists during Stanley Cup Playoff action in 106 games played. Ullman was twice the playoff scoring leader.
On March 3, 1968, midway through his thirteenth season with Detroit, it was announced that Norm Ullman, along with Paul Henderson and Floyd Smith, were being dealt to the Toronto Maple Leafs for Frank Mahovlich, Pete Stemkowski, Garry Unger, and the rights to Carl Brewer.
He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame on September 8, 1982. In 1998, he was ranked number 90 on The Hockey News' list of the 100 Greatest Hockey Players.
