When you think of the St. Louis Blues, you think of the Golden Brett, Brett Hull.

Having scored almost 90 goals in one season and holding the Blues all-time scoring record, Hull is a staple for the St. Louis fan base.

When you attend games at the Scottrade Center, you are sure to see more than a couple Hull jerseys still donning the backs of loyal fans.

Well now, 15 years after Hull turned his back on St. Louis and left for Dallas, Hull is set to make his return to the gateway city for good.

While no contract is in place as of yet, multiple sources are reporting that the 49 year-old Hull will be joining the Blues as Vice President.  The position will give Hull the ability to focus on the business side of the organization all while helping fans feel like Hully is back where he should be.

The St. Louis Blues announced on Wednesday that some organizational changes were happening when GM Doug Armstrong was promoted to President of Hockey Operations and Bruce Affleck was appointed the President of Business operations.  The changes in title helped make room for Hull.

The last time the organization officially worked with Brett was in 2006 when his number 16 was retired to the rafters.

The contract to make Hull a member of the club once again should be completed by the beginning or middle of next week and will come with an announcement shortly after.

At long last the 2009 Hall of Fame inductee will be back in his rightful place.

More as we have it.

LET’S GO BLUES!
