Brett Hull

Monday nights press conference introducing Brett Hull as the Executive VP of Marketing was as Tom Stillman said, “Possibly one of the worst kept secrets in Blues history”. The evening began around 6:16 as The St. Louis Blues surprised Brett by having two of his kids present at the conference. The conference felt a lot like the night that the Blues retired his jersey to the rafters of the Scottrade Center. It was a night full of emotions and full of laughter. The atmosphere was exactly what was expected for the return of Brett Hull to his home. During his NHL career as a Blue, Brett had 527 of his 741 career goals. After the press conference, I was able to catch up to Darren Pang and Brett Hull and get some feedback on Brett being back and also the outlook for the Blues this year.

 In the minds of a lot of Blues fans, Brett was the person who built the franchise and that is why The Blues have brought him back. Brett has been brought back in hopes to rebuild the Blues into an elite franchise in the NHL and return revenue to the organization. Brett has been a trademark of the Blues ever since he first stepped on the ice back in 1987 as a Blue and it seems that he will continue to be that strong foundation of the organization for many years to come.

Here is a recap of the Press Conference…
