Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Stats in bold signifies team leader.
Sulliman was a consistently solid player throughout his career, especially while a Devil. He had won some prestigious
awards for the team, like the Fan Club MVP and the Player's Player award, as well as being the Devils' nominee for
the Masterton Award in 1987.

A few injuries had caused Sulliman to miss a substantial amount of games in 87-88. Also, with some shifting around
of players to his position (Aaron Broten and Mark Johnson), and the emergence of Pat Conacher, there was times
where Sulliman saw time on the fourth line that season.

He would finish his career with the Flyers. Not by his choice, though; a knee injury caused him to retire during the 89-
90 season.

He first went into coaching the season after, and did so with the Devils, serving as an assistant for 3 seasons. He then
took a job on Wall Street for 11 years, and followed that with a 5-year stint with an insurance company. He wasn't
away from the game ALL that time, though; he served as the Devils' colorman for the 95-96 season.

He was hired as an assistant coach again during the summer of 2008, this time by his brother-in-law Don Maloney and
the Phoenix Coyotes. He would stay there for a few years.

Currently, he works as an industrial construction safety professional, as well as a motivational speaker.
