Report: St. Louis to hire Hull as VP

The Golden Brett is returning to St. Louis.

Brett Hull, the Blues’ all-time leading goalscorer, will be hired as the club’s new vice president next week, according to multiple reports.

Hull, 49, spent 11 years with St. Louis from the late 80s to late 90s, posting some of the greatest scoring seasons in NHL history.

His 86 goals in 1990-91 still stands as the third-highest single game total in NHL history — that year, he also became the first Blue to ever capture the Hart Trophy as league MVP.

Hull also captained the club from 1992-95 but infamously left the organization to sign in Dallas in 1998, rejecting St Louis’ contract offer because it didn’t include a no-trade clause.

Fifteen years later, he’s back.

This will mark Hull’s second front office gig post-retirement, having previously worked for Dallas in executive vice president and alternate governor roles.

Hull had his No. 16 retired by the Blues on December 5, 2006, and was enshrined in the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2009.

    Good move here. Now everyone in St. Louis will learn how to score illegally, then have the NHL quietly change the rule during the off-season to retroactively make it legal.

      Mhm because clearly had he not scored another person would not have. Clearly the sabres would have won and then won game 7. I mean the stars were just awful yup and he was all over the goalie punching him in the face and whacking at him until the puck went into the back of the net. Stu Barnes got over it and had a nice tenure in Dallas I think it’s about time buffalo shuts up and moves on.

    He’s the best blues player of all-time, can’t be debated. He is there to help close big money corporate deals so the blues can afford to keep the best players for seasons to come, and also help the organization turn a profit, God willing!

    Dont know what he could add. His tenure in Dallas as co-GM was not good.
