Blues chairman Dave Checketts announced last season that a statue honoring Brett Hull would be unveiled at a later date.
Now, that date has been set.
Hull's statue will be unveiled at a pregame ceremony before the 2010-11 season opener at Scottrade Center on Oct. 9 when the Blues host Chris Pronger and the defending Eastern Conference Champion Philadelphia Flyers.
The statue will join the Bernie Federko and Al MacInnis sculptures, which already reside outside Scottrade Center's main entrance on Brett Hull Way (Clark Street). The event will be aired on FOX Sports Midwest beginning at 6 p.m.
Over the course of a career that spanned 1,269 games, Hull scored 741 goals and 650 assists (1,391 points).
He won the Lady Byng Trophy for sportsmanship in 1990, the Hart Memorial Trophy for league MVP in 1991 and a silver medal with Team USA.
The Hall-of-Famer also holds the Blues’ franchise records in goals (527), hat tricks (27), game-winning goals (70), power play goals (195) and shots on goal (3,367).
He won two Stanley Cups (Dallas in 1999 and Detroit in 2002) and his No. 16 jersey was retired to the Scottrade Center rafters in 2006.
