Brett Hull was born in Belleville Ontario, but moved to British Columbia in his early teens with his mother. Hull played out the remainder of minor hockey with the North Shore Winter Club.
Following a year long absence from hockey, a friend convinced Hull to try out for the Penticton Knights Junior A team in 1982. Hull was awarded a spot out of camp, partly due to the fact he was the son of Bobby Hull. Brett however did not disappoint the Knights, scoring 104 points in his first season, and accumulating 188 points, including 105 goals in his second season with the Knights.
Hull was selected in the sixth round of the 1984 National Hockey League (NHL) Entry Draft by the Calgary Flames. Hull would play two (2) seasons for the University of Minnesota-Duluth, before making the jump to the NHL, where he would become one of the most prolific scorers the game has seen notching 1,391 points in his 1,269 games.
