Hull Energized and Ready to Contribute


Two things that Brett Hull has always excelled at are scoring goals and winning.

His days of scoring goals are over, but that does not mean he can’t continue to contribute towards a winning hockey team. Hull was officially named to the Dallas Stars front office on Tuesday as a special advisor to hockey operations.

“I have always wanted to help a team win the Stanley Cup from the business side of things,” said Hull. “I am excited about this next challenge in my life and look forward to working with the entire hockey operations department on a deeper level.”

Hull’s defined role with the hockey club will evolve as time goes by, but overall the team wants to get his unique opinions on the game, players and philosophies.

“I think everyone will agree that I have a different take on the game and different ideas than most people,” he said. “When you are trying to build a Stanley Cup championship team, the more ideas you have on what it might take to get there will only help.

“Hopefully I will be able to find ways to make us better as I work with Doug (Armstrong), Frank (Provenzano), Les (Jackson), Dave (Tippett) and everybody in the Hockey Operations Department. It might be small things and it might be big things, but when you are trying to build a Stanley Cup winner there is never a detail that is too small. A little detail that somebody might bring up about the team might be the difference in getting five or 10 extra goals and I’m looking to contribute in that way.”

Following an illustrious 19-year NHL career, Hull retired in 2005. He scored 741 goals which is good for third place in NHL history. His 24 career playoff game-winning goals are tied with Wayne Gretzky for the most in NHL history, while his 33 career hat tricks rank fourth all-time and his 265 power play goals trail only Dave Andreychuk in the league annals. Hull scored 1,391 career regular season points (741 goals and 650 assists) and in 202 career NHL playoff games, tallied 103 goals (fourth most all-time) and 87 assists for 190 points, the sixth-highest scoring total in NHL history.

“Once I retired, the only thought I had for my career was to get involved with the Dallas organization and show them I wanted to help them be successful and win a Stanley Cup,” Hull said. “My goal is to be in the next Dallas Stars Stanley Cup team picture wearing a suit and knowing that I had an integral part in helping with it.”

A member of the Dallas Stars for three seasons from 1998 – 2001, Hull helped lead the club to its Stanley Cup championship in 1999. In 218 games as a Star, he recorded 196 points (95 goals and 101 assists), and added 46 points (21 goals and 25 assists) in 55 Stanley Cup Playoff outings. Also winning the Stanley Cup with Detroit in 2002, he appeared in eight NHL All-Star Games, won the Hart Trophy in 1991 as league MVP, and skated for Team USA at the Olympics in 1998 and in 2002.

“I have always wanted to help a team win the Stanley Cup from the business side of things,” he said. “I am excited about this next challenge in my life and look forward to working with the entire Hockey Operations Department on a deeper level.”
