Brett Hull is one of the greatest scorers in the history of the National Hockey League, and it is no wonder since hockey runs in his blood. In his career, he lead two teams to a Stanley Cup championship, and moved his way towards the top of the all time goal scorer list, much like his father Bobby Hull.
The 18-year NHL veteran is the NHL’s active goal-scoring leader and currently ranks third on the NHL’s all-time goal scoring list with 741 goals. In the history of the NHL, only Hall of Famers Wayne Gretzky (894) and Gordie Howe (801) have scored more goals than Hull who is 60 goals shy of catching Howe. Hull has also scored 103 playoff goals, which ranks 4th on the NHL’s all-time list, trailing only Gretzky, Mark Messier and Jari Kurri.
Hull has been selected to play in the NHL All-Star Game an incredible 9 times (1989-94, ‘96-97, ‘01). He won the Hart Trophy in 1991 as the NHL’s Most Valuable Player and was also named MVP of the 1992 NHL All-Star Game. Hullwas named as an NHL First Team All-Star 3 times (1990-92) and won the Lady Byng Trophy (as the NHL’s most gentlemanly player) in 1990. He has led the NHL in goal scoring three different times (1989-90, ’90-91, ’91-92).
Brett Hull’s outspoken and humorous personality has recently resulted in his becoming a frequent guest on many of the “sports talk” television programs, as well as an appearance on Saturday Night Live.
