At some point during the Blues game against Detroit tonight, St. Louis plans to honor a legend of its past. The great right winger Brett Hull will have his No. 16 jersey retired joining eight other Blues players who have their jerseys in the rafters.
Hull led the Blues to the playoffs in all 11 years he was with the team. During his time in St. Louis (1987-1998), Hull became one of the most noticeable sports figures in St. Louis on par with Ozzie Smith, Marshall Faulk, and Albert Pujols.
Not playing in today’s game will be goalie Curtis Sanford who will be out six to eight weeks with a torn groin. Sanford tore the groin in a 5-2 loss to Chicago Friday night. Manny Legace figures to replace Sanford and see most of the time in the crease until Sanford returns.
