Ray Cullen (born September 20, 1941 in Ottawa, Ontario) is a retired professional player who played 313 games in the National Hockey League. He played for the Detroit Red Wings, New York Rangers, Minnesota North Stars, and Vancouver Canucks.

He played for the hometown junior St. Catharines TeePees for four years (1958-62) including the Memorial Cup-winning season of 1959-60.

From 1962-67 Cullen played well in the minor pros, but bounced from NHL team to NHL team, never getting a good shot at the major league. But the 1967 Expansion gave Cullen a real chance. The Minnesota North Stars picked him in the 1967 NHL Expansion Draft. Cullen responded with 28 goals and 25 assists in 1967-68 and 26 goals and 38 assists in 1968-69. But his production dropped to only 45 points in 1969-70 and he was drafted by the Vancouver Canucks in the 1970 NHL Expansion Draft.

After a disappointing season in Vancouver (33 points) Cullen retired in 1971.
