This amazing jersey was part of the Ken “Hammered Hockey” Mace Collection. We will be donating a percentage of the proceeds from the sale of this sweater to the The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society both in support of Ken and to help aid in the fight against Blood Cancers.
This red air-knit gamer by Koho was worn by Brett Hull during the 2002-03 NHL season. Brett was a 6th round selection by Calgary in the 1984 NHL entry draft. Hull saw his first NHL action in the 1986 playoffs, where he dressed for two games. He was again a late season call up in 1986-87, making it into the lineup for five games and four more in the playoffs. Hull finally broke camp with the Flames to begin the 1987-88 campaign. In his first full NHL season, Brett would again be making a late season move. Despite playing in 52 games for the Flames, and registering 26 goals and 50 points, the club saw fit to deal Hull to the Blues at the deadline in exchange for Rick Wamsley and Rob Ramage.
Hull made an immediate impression in St. Louis and a Hall of Fame career was underway. In Hull’s first full season in St. Louis he struck for 41 goals and 84 points. The next 3 years would see Brett lead the NHL in goals, with totals of 72, 86 and 70 respectively. Two more 50-goal seasons followed en route to 741 career goals which place Hull 3rd on the all-time list. Hull’s 1391 career points are good for top 20 on the all-time list. His career playoff totals of 103 goals and 190 points also place him among the all-time elite. Hull was 3 times a 1st team NHL All Star at RW and played in 8 NHL All Star games.
Brett represented Team USA in the 1991 Canada Cup, the 1996 World Cup of Hockey and the Olympics. In 1990 he won the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy which is awarded to the player judged to have exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability. In 1991 he was the recipient of the Hart Trophy as NHL Most Valuable Player and the Lester B Pearson Trophy as the NHL’s outstanding player as voted on by the players association.
Following his time in St. Louis, Hull moved to the Dallas Stars where, in his first season with the club, he captured his first Stanley Cup Trophy. After 3 years with the Stars, Hull moved to the Motor City where again, in his first season with his new club, he captured the Stanley Cup. Brett spent a total of 3 years with the Red Wings before playing a final 5-game stint in 2005-06 with the Phoenix Coyotes.
The sleeves of this jersey have had 4” custom extensions added to them. The body of this gamer has also been custom altered, having been shortened in the hem to Hull’s specs. The game wear consists of stick and slash marks, board burns, inner pilling and a handful of team-sewn repairs. On the inside hem is the official Detroit Red Wings game worn jersey identification.
It comes as no surprise that this Brett Hull jersey has solid game wear, as it was part of the Ken “Hammered Hockey” Mace Collection.
