Brett Hull


As the son of the "Golden Jet" Bobby Hull, Brett came into the game with the pressures that having a famous name can bring – pressures that he shrugged off easily. Drafted by the Calgary Flames in 1984, Brett made a name for himself with the St. Louis Blues, where he scored 50 goals in 49 games during the 1989-90 season, becoming just the fifth player in NHL history to achieve 50/50, tying as third fastest ever. The 1990-91 campaign marked the first of Hull's three consecutive 70-plus goal seasons, which included a career high 86 goals in 1990-91 which earned him the Lester B. Pearson Trophy and the HartMemorial Trophy as the league's Most Valuable Player. Brett moved on to Dallas in the summer of 1998, leading the Stars to a Stanley Cup championship in 1999 with Brett scoring the winning goal in triple overtime. He also suited up for the Detroit Red Wings, where he held his second Stanley Cup in 2002. In his illustrious NHL career, Brett Hull scored 741 goals, 650 assists and 1,391 points. On the international stage Hull has represented the United States at the Winter Olympics (1998 and 2002), the 1996 World Cup, the 1991 Canada Cup and the 1986 World Championships. Brett and Bobby became the only father and son combo in NHL history to each score 1,000 points and are also both members of the Hockey Hall of Fame.
