NHL Hockey Player and Comedian
Dennis Hull, is a fourteen year veteran of the National Hockey League, spending 13 seasons with the Chicago Black Hawks and one season with the Detroit Red Wings. He played in over 1,000 games during his NHL career and was known for his powerful shot on net, which many qualified observers, including rival goal tenders, say equalled or surpassed that of his brother Bobby. Over his career, Dennis amassed 303 goals and 351 assists in the regular season and scored 33 goals and the same number of assists in 95 playoff games. Six selections to the All-Star Game are further testament to his hockey skills.
Dennis' biggest thrill in hockey was the first game he played against his idol, Gordie Howe, but the most significant moment in his career came when he was selected to play for the memorable Team Canada of 1972.
Following his hockey career, Dennis returned to school and received a History and Physical Education degree from Brock University. He took up a position with prestigious Ridley College as a history teacher, and then moved to the position of Athletic Director at Illinois Tech., a highly rated academic university in Chicago.
Dennis Hull will readily admit to not being anything other than Bobby Hull's brother, as long as you add that he's the younger brother. He's even been known to answer to someone asking for Brett Hull's uncle.
