Abstract:

Hockey legend Gordie Howe once said there were two superstars in the Hull family: Bobby, the Golden Jet and one of the greatest players ever to tie up a pair of skates, and his brother Dennis, who had a solid career with the Chicago Blackhawks, and is now one of the most sought-after public speakers in North America. In The Third Best Hull. Dennis Hull outlines his life in hockey with humorous anecdotes, insights, and stories. Not just another sports autobiography, this book provides insight into the life of a hockey star without taking itself too seriously. You'll find out about the time Hull taught Guy Lafleur to speak English; how he once won a coin toss worth $250,000; and about his ongoing rivalry with Henri Richard, the younger brother of the legendary Canadiens' great Maurice Richard. Along the way, Dennis gives the reader an account of the famed 1972 Russia-Canada series and speaks with stunning candour about his brother, Bobby, his nephew and St. Louis Blues' star Brett Hull, and hockey legends like Howe, Ken Dryden, and Bobby Orr.
