Brett Hull leaves TV job after one year
Former NHL superstar Brett Hull istaking onmore dutiesin the Dallas Stars organization and willno longer work as a hockey analyst with NBC Sports, both sides have confirmed.
"He will definitely have an expanded role in hockey operations, but we're not sure what that role will be," Stars president Jim Lites told the Dallas News.
Hull spent one season with NBC. During the Stanley Cup final, Hull appeared on Hockey Night in Canada's Coach's Corner, with host Don Cherry returning the favour on the NBC broadcast.
Hull was already doing public relations for the Stars, raising a conflict of interest issue upon his NBC hiring.
Hull recorded 741 goals and 650 assists in a career that ended in 2005 after over 17 seasons with Calgary, St. Louis, Dallas, Detroit and Phoenix. He recorded 70 or more goals in three consecutive seasons with the Blues.
The 42-year-old scored the winning goal for the Stars in the deciding game of the 1999 Stanley Cup final, and was on a championship team again three years later with the Red Wings.
