Brett Hull is one of the greatest players in St. Louis Blues history. Brett Hull is now on his way back to the Blues organization.

According to multiple reports out of St. Louis including the Post-Dispatch's Jeremy Rutherford, the Blues will announce early next week the return of Hull to the organization.

According to multiple sources, Hull, 49, will be named to a vice president position with the Blues and focus primarily on the business side of the organization. The deal between Hull and the club is not yet finalized, but is expected to be wrapped up soon and announced as early as next week.

On Wednesday, the Blues changed the titles of general manager Doug Armstrong to president of hockey operations and chief operating officer Bruce Affleck to president of business operations to clarify the hierarchy when Hull's addition becomes official.

In recent years Hull has been involved with the Dallas Stars in different executive roles, including at one point being the co-GM with Les Jackson, somewhat ironically replacing Doug Armstrong in Dallas. Since being removed as co-GM, he has served as an adviser as well as the executive vice president and alternate governor.

Oh, and how can we forget he was the Ambassador of Fun in Dallas as well?

More recently Hull has made waves for his tweeting from sharing some X-rated tweets with his legion of followers to simply trolling the city of Buffalo at every chance he gets, which included this excellent pumpkin at Halloween.

Now the Twitter account is gone as Hull apparently prepares for his new gig with the Blues. Because, you know, retweeting boob pictures probably doesn't go well for somebody on the business side of things.

Hull is the Blues' all-time leader in goals with 527, 175 more than Bernie Federko. Hull's 936 career points are second only to Federko, a mark that Hull achieved in just 744 games with the Blues.
