1996 Brett Hull Team USA World Cup of Hockey Game Worn Jersey – “1996 World Cup of Hockey” – Brett Hull Letter
Lot #155

This jersey originated from the personal collection of Hall of Famer Brett Hull. A letter from Mr. Hull will accompany your purchase.

This white air-knit gamer by Nike was worn by Brett Hull during the 1996 World Cup of Hockey. 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 left shoulder of this gamer is the 1996 World Cup of Hockey patch. The game wear on this size 56 sweater consists of some light board burns and board paint transfer along with a good many snags and material pulls. Hull earned World Cup All Star status as he lit the lamp 7 times and added 4 assists for a Team USA leading 11 points. In fact, Brett netted Team USA’s first 2 goals in the 3rd and deciding game against Team Canada. A nice gamer from the inaugural World Cup of Hockey originally hailing from The Golden Brett’s personal collection.
