Brett Hull’s hilarious roast on Scott Thornton belongs in the one-liner Hall of Fame

Brett Hull is a legend in every way possible.

Known as one of the best goal scorers in league history, he was also a hilarious guy to have in the locker room, and there are countless stories about the crazy things he’s done and said over the years.

Brett Hull started his NHL career with the Calgary Flames in 1986, as he made his debut in the Stanley Cup Finals.

When he retired, he did it with 741 goals, and throughout history, only four players have scored more.

He’s also one of only five players to score 50 goals in 50 games, and he won two Stanley Cups. But it wasn’t just the elite sniping that made Hull the perfect guy to have on your team.

Hull always boosted morale, and when Wayne Gretzky was asked who the funniest guy he had ever played with was, he didn’t hesitate to name the great Brett Hull.

Hull was a typical jokester, and he wasn’t shy in humiliating his teammates for a great joke, and this is the ultimate proof of that.

When Hull played with the Dallas Stars, he played in the same line as Mike Modano. And the third player in the line, at one moment, was Scott Thornton, not really known for his offensive skills.

”Scott’s like, ’I’m playing with Modano and Hull, this is awesome,’” Conroy told The Athletic.

”Hullie said to him, ’Hey, you should be up for the Selke.’ Scott goes, ’You think?’ Hullie goes, ’Yeah. No one’s ever shut me down like this.’”

Marty Turco, former Stars goalie, has a similar story.

”In a very sincere or real tone, he told two of our defensemen who ate the most minutes, played against the top lines, he’s like, ’You know, you two together deserve to win the Norris Trophy.’ It really sounded like a compliment. They were like, ’Oh, Hullie, thanks, that’s nice.’ He goes, ’Not only do you shut down the other team’s top offensive line, you also shut down ours. Stop shooting it off the glass. Make a f—king pass.’ Then he walked away.”

There’s only one Brett Hull!
