Client: Herb Brooks Foundation Gala
Direct Sportslink secured Bobby Hull and Gordie Howe for the Herb Brooks Foundation Gala. Bobby's appearance helped make the event a huge success. He joined Gordie on stage for a Q and A after his speech and shared great stories from his playing days. It was an amazing event with true hockey legends present to help raise money for the HBF.
It was a great pleasure working with Direct Sportslink. They made my job of planning the Herb Brooks Foundation gala much easier with their expertise, ideas and organizational skills. Direct Sportslink was able to secure our speakers (Gordie Howe and Bobby Hull) in a timely manner, and they even came to our event to ensure the success of our gala! I will definitely work with them again, and I now consider Ward Headley, President of Direct Sportslink, a great new friend. Thank you.

Bobby Hull, known as the 'Golden Jet", led the Chicago Blackhawks to the Stanley Cup, in 1961 - their third ever and first in almost 30 years. Although he originally wore number 16 then wore number 7 when the Hawks won the cup, he later switched to number 9, considered the prestige number in hockey.
Bobby Hull was famous for the speed and accuracy of his 120 mph slapshot, that many others would soon try to imitate. Hull was able to have such a fast slapshot because he and his teammate Stan Mikita were the first NHL players to curve the blades of their sticks. The curved blade allows the shooter to remain in contact with the puck for a longer period of time and increase the force behind the shot.
In 1966, he became the first NHL player to score more than 50 goals in one season, earning a 7-minute standing ovation for his 51st goal. He played 23 professional seasons in hockey from 1957 to 1980, scoring 672 goals.
He has numerous NHL awars; won the Art Ross Memorial Trophy as the NHL's scoring champion three times; (1960, 1962, 1966), twice voted the Hart Trophy as the league's most valuable player; (1965, 1966) , ten times he was named to the NHL's First All-Star team. (1960, 1962, 1964, 1965, 1966, 1967, 1968, 1969, 1970, 1972), twice named to the NHL's Second All-Star Team; (1963, 1971) Inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1983.
A member of one of the great families of hockey, his son, Brett Hull (the Golden Brett), starred in the National Hockey League and his little brother, Dennis Hull, played alongside him for the Chicago Black Hawks. His son Brett, wore his father's retired #9 for the last five games of his career.
