Dustin Byfuglien Bio

Born: March 27, 1985
Where: Minneapolis, USA


Dustin Byfuglien

Dustin Byfuglien isn’t your average hockey superstar. He was selected 245th in the 2003 NHL Draft. He doesn’t score pretty goals, and he isn’t fancy with the puck, but Dustin is an emerging hockey star in a revolutionary style of the way hockey is played. He is a monster on the ice and the Chicago Blackhawks have found a way to make him a huge part of their goal-scoring machine.

Roseau Roots

In Roseau, Minnesota, Dustin grew up with only his mother Cheryl Byfuglien in a mobile trailer and very little money. Roseau, only 10 minutes from the Canadian border, is where many great American hockey players come from and is known as the heartland of American hockey. Dustin would spend 5-6 hours a day, 6 days a week, at the hockey rink where all of his friends hung out. His grandma lived right across the street from the rink, so if he ever got hungry, she was a quick visit away.

Rags to Riches

Big Big

Dustin became a well-known hockey player in his teenage years, and he was sent to Prince George in British Columbia, Canada to play some more competitive hockey. There Dustin took it upon himself to get stronger, lose weight and to get fit enough to play professional hockey. It took about 5 years for the Blackhawks to finally call him up to the big leagues, and Dustin scored a goal on his very first shift in the NHL.


Game Breaker Buff

In the 2009 playoff season, the Blackhawks implemented a new strategy using Dustin on a line with All-Stars Patrick Kane and Jonathon Toews. As Jonathon and Patrick danced around the ice with the puck, Dustin bulldozed over bodies everywhere and cleared the path to the net. This style of play was very unique and has now become the Blackhawks’ main way to win games. Dustin led the 2010 NHL playoffs with 4 game winning goals and the Blackhawks first trip to the Stanley Cup since 1991.
