Brett Hull elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame

The Hockey Hall of Fame have announced their class of 2009 with Brett Hull, Brian Leetch, Luc Robitaille and Steve Yzerman being elected.

Bill Hay, Chairman of the Hockey Hall of Fame's Board of Directors and Jim Gregory and Pat Quinn, Co-Chairmen of the Hockey Hall of Fame's Selection Committee, announced today that Brett Hull, Brian Leetch, Luc Robitaille and Steve Yzerman have been elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in the Player Category and Lou Lamoriello has been elected in the Builder Category. The vote took place today at the annual meeting of the Selection Committee in Toronto.

"The Hockey Hall of Fame is proud to welcome these five hockey legends as Honoured Members," said Jim Gregory. "Their contributions to the game of hockey are well documented and their election to the Hockey Hall of Fame is richly deserved."

Brett Hull spent three seasons with the Dallas Stars between 1998 and 2001, helping the team to three division titles, two Conference Championships and a Stanley Cup victory. He and Mike Modano formed one of the more formidable offensive pairs in the NHL during their time together, with Hull leading the team in playoff scoring in 2000.

Known for his blistering slap shot, Hull's biggest goal of his career came off a rebound in close to the net when he slid the puck past a sprawling Dominik Hasek to clinch the Stanley Cup in 1999.

Hull scored his 600th career goal while with the Stars, getting the milestone goal on New Year's Eve in 1999.

Congratulations to Hull, as well as to Yzerman, Leetch and Robitaille.
