Default Phoenix Coyotes Sign Hull

GLENDALE, ARIZONA - Phoenix Coyotes General Manager Michael Barnett announced Firday that the Coyotes have signed free agent right wing Brett Hull to a two-year contract. As per club policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed.



The 18-year NHL veteran is the NHL's active goal-scoring leader and currently ranks third on the NHL's all-time goal scoring list with 741 goals. In the history of the NHL, only Hall of Famers Wayne Gretzky (894) and Gordie Howe (801) have scored more goals than Hull who is 60 goals shy of catching Howe. Hull has also scored 103 playoff goals, which ranks 4th on the NHL's all-time list, trailing only Gretzky, Mark Messier and Jari Kurri.



"Brett Hull is one of the most talented goal scorers in NHL history," said Barnett. "He is a dynamic player who creates excitement every time he enters the offensive zone. He has contributed significantly to winning Stanley Cups in both Detroit and Dallas. We not only look forward to the experience and passion he will bring to his teammates here in Phoenix but also to the pure entertainment he will provide to our fans."



The 5-foot-11, 203 pound forward has played in 1,264 games in his NHL career with Calgary, St. Louis, Dallas and Detroit, scoring 741 goals, 649 assists and 1,390 points. In 202 playoff games, Hull has scored 103 goals, 87 assists and 190 points. He has won two Stanley Cup Championships in his career (1999 with Dallas and 2002 with Detroit), leading his team to victory both times. Hull scored the Cup-winning goal with Dallas in triple overtime of Game 6 against Buffalo on June 19, 1999, and while with Detroit in 2002, led the NHL in playoff goals with 10. He has now been to the playoffs for the last 19 consecutive seasons (1986-2004), the NHL's second longest all-time streak, trailing only Larry Robinson (20 straight years from 1973-1992).



Hull has been selected to play in the NHL All-Star Game an incredible 9 times (1989-94, '96-97, '01). He won the Hart Trophy in 1991 as the NHL's Most Valuable Player and was also named MVP of the 1992 NHL All-Star Game. Hull was named as an NHL First Team All-Star 3 times (1990-92) and won the Lady Byng Trophy (as the NHL's most gentlemanly player) in 1990. He has led the NHL in goal scoring three different times (1989-90, '90-91, '91-92).



Last season with Detroit, Hull recorded 25-43-68 and 12 PIM in 81 games. The 39-year-old ranked 2nd on the Red Wings in assists and game winning goals (6), T-2nd in points and T-3rd in goals. He also tied for the team lead with 10 power play goals and finished 2nd with 200 shots. In three seasons as a Red Wing, Hull only missed one game and, over the last five seasons, he has only missed seven games, playing in 403 of a possible 410 games.



The Belleville, Ontario native is one of the most prolific goal scorers in the history of the NHL. He has reached the 70-goal plateau three times, the 50-goal plateau five times, the 40-goal plateau eight times and the 30-goal plateau 13 times. In fact, the fewest goals that Hull has scored in a full season is 24 (in 1999-00 with Dallas). Hull has also eclipsed the 100-point plateau on four occasions.

Man, this pisses me off. I was reading that he was heading to Dallas for sure. They were saying he was working out at the dallas training facility and everything. I guess it was a slow day at the office for some reporters. I know Dallas wouldn't give him 2 years and they were only offering 1 year. I guess he really wanted that extra year. I wonder how much he signed for.

it was a 2 year 4.5 million dollar deal plus he can earn more in performance bonuses.

The Coyotes Are making a serious run at competing, hull brings alot of experience, and is probably one of the greatest goal scorers of all time.

Wayne and Bret are reunited once again. He will be a good mentor to Shane Doan.
