Hull was originally acquired by the Blues on March 7, 1988 from the Calgary Flames for goalie Rick Wamsley and forward Steve Bozek. He spent 11 seasons with the Blues. In Hull’s 11 seasons with the Blues (1988-98), he recorded 527 goals, 67 playoff goals, 117 playoff points, 27 regular season hat tricks and played in 102 playoff games, which are all franchise records.
He’s second all-time in club history in regular season points (936), regular season assists (409) and playoff assists (50). Hull’s run in St. Louis ended when the Blues did not resign him following the 1998 season. He signed a free agent contract with the Stars, coached by current Blues coach Ken Hitchcock and won a Stanley Cup in 1999 with Dallas. He then won the Cup in 2002 with the Red Wings.
The club is banking on Hull’s fame to help with ticket and suite sales.
