Hockey Hall of Famer Brett Hull is reportedly returning to the St. Louis Blues as a vice president in the team's front office.

This development was reported by Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, who says Hull will be reunited with the Blues after 15 years. 1998 saw the year when he left St. Louis as a free agent to sign with the Dallas Stars, whom he also worked for as an excutive after his retirement in 2005. 

In 2007, Hull was promoted to Stars general manager, a role he assumed until 2009 and also shared with Les Jackson. He retained his roles as executive vice president and alternate governor. 

Citing multiple sources, Rutherford notes Hull's new role with the Blues will focus more on the business side. The deal is expected to be finalized by next week. 

According to Rutherford,"On Wednesday, the Blues changed the titles of general manager Doug Armstrong to president of hockey operations and chief operating officer Bruce Affleck to president of business operations to clarify the hierarchy when Hull's addition becomes official." 

The 49-year-old Hull suited up for the Blues from 1988-1998. He is still the team's all-time leader in goals (527), playoff goals (67), playoff points (117), regular-season hat tricks (27) and playoff games (102). 

He also saw action for the Calgary Flames, Detroit Red Wings and Phoenix Coyotes in a career which has him amassing 741 goals and 650 assists for 1,391 points. 

The St. Louis Blues retired Hull's No. 16 jersey in 2006. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame three years later.

Sep 10 2014 10:14am CDT | Source: SBNation

Jarome Iginla proved last season that he can still score like a top NHL player in his mid-30s. But does he have a couple of more seasons in him at such a high level? Following the 2012-13 season, in which he was traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins after spending 15-and-a-half seasons with the Calgary Flames, Jarome Iginla's time as a top goal-scorer in the NHL looked like it was finished. He was 35 years old and ...
