In eleven years with the franchise, Hull has 527 goals with the team, which is a franchise record that I can't see being broken any time soon. The eight-time all star is second on the Blues' points list with 936 and is third in all-time league goals with 741. Here're Hullie's stats with the Blues, from STLBlues.com:
