The rumors about Brett Hull joining the St. Louis Blues as an executive are true.

According to Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the team is set to announce Hull as a vice president of the team centered on the business side of operations. T.J. Oshie is happy to welcome him back to the team.

“Obviously (Hull is) probably one of the most well-known players in town here, an unbelievable guy … a great team guy who knows the players’ side of the game probably a lot better than most people. It will be great to have him up (in the front office).”

Calling Hull well-known in St. Louis is a massive understatement. He played 11 seasons with the Blues and had his greatest seasons as a goal-scorer there including a career-high 86 goals in 1990-91. In all, he scored 527 out of his 741 career goals with the Blues.

      Brett’s function is to sell tickets to the high dollar business types; not make decisions about who’s in St. Louis and who’s in the minors. Where he does his work, be it on a golf course, in a restaurant, on TV or at Scottrade will matter not, as long as the dollars roll in…
