CULVER ‚ÄĒ Culver‚Äôs incredible hockey legacy is sometimes overlooked or even taken for granted, so frequent are state championship titles won (21 so far) and so many are the Culver Academies graduates who made their way to the NHL.
But one whole Culver family has had remarkable success on the ice, that of Academies advancement officer Kevin Kucera. Two of whose sons have garnered attention at the collegiate level for their hockey success, and his youngest son is already poised to follow in their footsteps.
