Hull's new role will be the executive vice-president. It appears that Hull will take over that particular role of the hockey club from Doug Armstrong, who according to the National Hockey League Official Guide and Record Book, was the Blues' executive vice-president and general manager last season. Armstrong will remain the Blues' general manager.
Hull was drafted by the Calgary Flames in the sixth round, 117th overall in the 1984 National Hockey League Entry Draft. He played two games for the Flames in the 1986 Stanley Cup Playoffs, before playing parts of the next two regular seasons for Calgary in 1986-87 and 1987-88. He was then shipped to St. Louis in a blockbuster deal on March 7, 1988 with Steve Bozek for Rick Wamsley and Rob Ramage. He would go on to play 11 more seasons with the Blues and became an inducted member in the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2009.
