Phoenix Coyotes right wing Brett Hull has ironically retired at a time when the NHL has opened up the game for its star players as Hull had long hunted for. He after establishing as one of the most colorful and dynamic scorers in NHL history retired as the third highest goal scorer in NHL history. Hull after spending 17 months away from hockey because of the lockout wasn't able to do up his game to where it needed to be for him to be more competent and effective. He is the fifth future Hall of Famer to have his retirement subjected to the lockout, teaming with Mark Messier, Ron Francis, Scott Stevens and Al MacInnis.

Hull was a fabulous athlete and a fervent player who never hesitated to speak his mind. His achievements further strengthen the Hull family legacy of hockey greatness. Brett Hull did a tremendous amount for the game of hockey. Hull, who scored 741 goals and 1,391 points played playing just five games with the Phoenix Coyotes this season.
