Bart Hull (born February 13, 1969) is a former running back in the Canadian Football League. He is the son of famed Canadian hockey legend Bobby Hull, nephew of Dennis Hull and brother of Brett Hull. Hull had a prolific high school athletic career at Vancouver College High School in Vancouver, B.C. before attending Boise State on an athletic scholarship.

A graduate of Boise State University,[1] Hull was drafted by the BC Lions but was traded to the Ottawa Rough Riders. He played 3 games with them in 1991.[2] Unfortunately, an ACL injury cut his season short.[3] He played one more CFL season, in 1994, suiting up with the Saskatchewan Roughriders for 2 more games.

After his football days, Hull played a bit of minor league hockey, taking the ice for 6 games over 3 seasons (1997-2000) with the Idaho Steelheads of the WCHL, suiting up when the team was shorthanded (his only statistics being 4 penalty minutes.)[4][5] He also briefly played arena football with the Idaho Stallions of the IPFL and one game in 1995 with the Los Angeles Blades of Roller Hockey International.

Hull moved to Dallas, Texas where he lived for past several years, and ran a successful construction company. He married Vandara Sareth Kheao, who gave birth to a daughter, Brett Madison (b.early 2013). He also has a son named Dylan.[5]

On December 15, 2013, Vandara and Brett Madison left Dallas, Texas to rejoin Hull in St. Louis, where he has rejoined the world of hockey as Vice President, Business Development for the St. Charles Chill (Affiliate of The St. Louis Blues). Hull and his wife are eagerly awaiting the birth of their second child, Brendan, expected in February 2014.[5]
