St. Louis, MO (Sports Network) - The St. Louis Blues announced that Hall of Famer Brett Hull has returned to the franchise.

Hull was welcomed as the club's new executive vice during a press conference at Scottrade Center on Monday.

"We are pleased and proud to announce that Brett Hull is coming home to the St. Louis Blues. "Brett was a Hall of Famer on ice, and he'll be a Hall of Famer in this capacity as well," said Blues chairman Tom Stillman.

Hull was acquired from Calgary late in the 1987-88 season and over the next 10-plus campaigns rewrote the franchise record books. He ranks at the top of the list for goals (527), hat tricks (27), game-winning goals (70), power-play goals (195) and shots on goal (3,367), and second in assists (409), points (936) and shorthanded goals (18). Hull also tallied three consecutive seasons of 70-or-more goals from 1989-92 and owns both the club mark for single-season tallies as well as the NHL record for right wingers with 86, accomplished in 1990-91,

Following the end of a legendary 20-year NHL career during which he compiled 741 goals, the 49-year-old moved into management with the Dallas Stars in 2006, rising to the level of co-general manager with Les Jackson in November of 2007.

He was eventually fired in 2009, replaced by former Dallas teammate Joe Nieuwendyk, but remained with the club as an advisor. Hull later worked as executive vice president and alternate governor.

"I never wanted to leave 15 years ago, and I'm glad I'm back, I can tell you that," admitted Hull.
