1989 Brett Hull NHL All Star Game Worn Jersey - 1st NHL All Star Game
Lot #55

This white air-knit gamer by CCM was worn by Brett Hull during the 1989 NHL All Star game in Edmonton, Alberta. The Calgary Flames selected Hull in the 6th round of 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 all-time.  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 and 2004 World Cup of Hockey and the 1998 and 2002 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.

Sewn to the right shoulder of this gamer is the Edmonton, Alberta 40th NHL All Star Game patch. The game wear on this size 52 sweater is on the lighter side as would be expected with some stick marks most worthy of mention. Hull added an assist in the annual classic, as his Campbell Conference won by a 9-5 margin. The 1988-89 season saw Hull notch the first 40-goal season of his career, scoring 41 goals and adding 43 assists for 84 points in 78 games played while earning his 1st NHL All Star Game appearance in the process. A nice fresh to the hobby Hall of Fame example hailing from Hull’s first NHL All Star Game.
