ESPN 103.3FM in Dallas reports that former Red Wing Brett Hull has suffered a serious calf injury during warm-ups for a charity baseball game over the weekend. Hull was to be one of the top stars at the event, which raises money for the Mike Modano Foundation.
Details about the injury are currently unavailable but it is reportedly a career-threatening injury.
In early June, the Red Wings informed Hull that they would not bring him back next season. He was rumored to be planning to sign with the reborn World Hockey Association which begins play this fall. Hull ended those rumors when he announced that he hoped to retire as the NHL’s second-leading scorer of all-time.
Hull was previously named to the United States’ entry in this summer’s World Cup of Hockey, along with Modano and Red Wings Derian Hatcher and Chris Chelios.
