In Pointe Anne, Ontario, Hull was born. He was the son of cement industry foreman Robert Edward Hull and Lena Cook. His junior hockey career began in Belleville, and in the fall of 1954, he began playing Junior B hockey for the Woodstock Warriors.
As Ontario’s winners in 1955, Hull steered the Warriors to the Sutherland Cup. Before signing on with the Chicago Black Hawks in 1957 at the age of 18, he later played for the Galt Black Hawks and the St. Catharines Teepees in the Ontario Hockey Association.
Who are Bobby Hull children?
Hull has five children with their first wife Joanne: sons Bobby Jr., Blake, Brett, Bart, and daughter Michelle.
In addition to playing hockey, Brett Hull scored 741 goals throughout his NHL career (currently the fifth-highest goal total in NHL history).
The only father-and-son team to score more than 50 goals in an NHL season and 600 goals overall were Bobby and Brett.
Additionally, Bobby and Brett are the only father-and-son team to have won the Hart Memorial Trophy (Bobby twice, Brett once), the Lady Byng Trophy, and to be the league’s top goal scorers (Bobby seven times and Brett three times).
For the final five games of his career while representing the Phoenix Coyotes in 2005, Brett wore his father’s retired No. 9. Prior to repeated injuries, Bart Hull excelled as a running back for the Boise State University Broncos football team. He also spent one season each with the Ottawa Rough Riders and Saskatchewan Roughriders in the CFL.
After football, he spent a brief time playing hockey professionally with the Idaho Steelheads. Blake and Bobby Jr. both participated in junior and senior hockey. Bobby Jr. and the 1980 Cornwall Royals won the Memorial Cup.
When the OHA Senior A Hockey League (AAA Men’s Amateur) Allan Cup-winning Brantford Mott’s Clamatos formed in 1987, the brothers participated together on the ice.
Hull’s daughter Michelle was a skilled figure skater who, at age 11, won the British Columbia Pre-Novice Championship. She had to give up figure skating due to repeated knee problems, and now she has dual state licenses as an attorney.
