Keynote or After Dinner Hockey Humour
Dennis Hull always played in the shadow of his famous brother, Bobby “The Golden Jet” Hull. Even so, he had 14 productive seasons in the NHL with the Chicago Blackhawks and with Detroit (for his final season) where he scored his 300th career goal. He played in 959 game, scoring 303 goals and 351 assists for 654 points.
Dennis would tell you that one of his most treasured moments in sports was playing in the 1972 Summit Series where he scored 2 goals and had 2 assists.
Today Dennis combines his love for farming, raising Pure Breed Polled Herefords at his farm in the Northhumberland Hills with his numerous speaking engagements.
Gordie and Colleen Howe, “Mr. and Mrs. Hockey” quoted in Dennis’ book The Third Best Hull (I should have been fourth but they wouldn’t let me sister Maxine play):
“Without a doubt, Dennis Hull is one of the most talented speakers and comedians in all of sports. He rivals the likes of Bob Hope and Eddie Murphy with his wit and humour. He was a natural on the ice, and now he’s a natural on the stage.”
