Few players have impacted the game of hockey – and the St. Louis Blues – like “The Golden One,” Brett Hull.

A pure and legendary goal scorer, Hull was not only the most dominating player in the history of the franchise, but also the team’s most colorful character. His play and personality captivated St. Louis for 11 years and earned him a place not only in NHL annuals, but in the Blues rafters, where number 16 will forever hang.

The Belleville, Ontario, native was drafted by Calgary in the sixth round (117th overall) of the 1984 NHL Entry Draft and made his debut with the Flames in the 1986 playoffs. In March 1988, the Blues acquired Hull in what was possibly the greatest trade in Blues history.

Hull spent 11 seasons in St. Louis and captured numerous NHL and club records during his tenure. He broke the Blues all-time record for goals in a season with 72 in 1989-90. The following season, Hull shattered his own mark by scoring 86 goals, the third most in NHL history and most ever by a right winger. In the same season, he scored 50 goals in 49 games, becoming the first Blue to score 50 goals in 50 games or less. For his efforts, Hull captured the Hart Trophy as the NHL’s Most Valuable Player. In 1991-92, he became the second player in NHL history to score 50 goals in 50 games twice, and also the second player in history to record 70-plus goals in three consecutive seasons. In 1993-94, Hull scored 57 goals, marking his fifth consecutive season with 50 or more.

Hull currently holds the all-time Blues franchise record in goals (527), hat tricks (27), game-winning goals (70), power play goals (195) and shots on goal (3,367) and ranks second in assists (409), points (936) and shorthanded goals (18).

Hull was signed by the Dallas Stars in July 1998, where he helped the Stars capture the Stanley Cup in his first season after scoring the game-winning goal in overtime in Game 6. Hull signed with Detroit as a free agent in August 2001 and won his second Stanley Cup in 2002. Hull signed with the Phoenix Coyotes in August 2004, and announced his retirement from hockey on Oct. 15, 2005.
