About Bobby Hull

Bobby Hull: The Golden Jet

Bobby Hull was born on January 3, 1939, in Pointe Anne, Ontario, Canada. He grew up playing ice hockey on frozen ponds and lakes, dreaming of one day playing in the NHL. His dream became a reality when he was drafted by the Chicago Blackhawks in 1957.

Hull quickly established himself as one of the most talented and exciting players in the league. He was known for his incredible speed, powerful shot, and fearless style of play. He earned the nickname "The Golden Jet" for his blonde hair and lightning-fast skating ability.

Hull played for the Blackhawks for 15 seasons, from 1957 to 1972. During that time, he scored 604 goals and 549 assists, making him one of the most prolific scorers in NHL history. He won the Hart Trophy as the league's most valuable player twice, in 1960 and 1965, and led the Blackhawks to the Stanley Cup championship in 1961.

In 1972, Hull signed with the Winnipeg Jets of the newly-formed World Hockey Association (WHA). He continued to dominate the league, scoring 303 goals in just 411 games over seven seasons. He won two Avco Cup championships with the Jets, in 1976 and 1978.

Hull's impact on the game of hockey was not just limited to his on-ice performance. He was one of the first players to use a curved stick, which allowed him to shoot the puck with even more power and accuracy. He also helped to popularize the slapshot, a technique that is now a staple of the game.

Hull retired from professional hockey in 1980, but his legacy lives on. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1983 and the WHA Hall of Fame in 2010. He remains one of the most beloved and respected players in the history of the sport.
