Brett Hextall (born April 2, 1988) is a former American professional ice hockey player who played four seasons in the American Hockey League (AHL) for the Portland Pirates and Lehigh Valley Phantoms.

Playing career[edit]

Hextall was drafted by the Phoenix Coyotes in the sixth round (159th overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.

In April 2011, the Coyotes signed Hextall to an entry level contract.[1] He played the next three seasons for the Portland Pirates, the Coyotes' AHL affiliate. Following the 2013–14 season, the Coyotes did not make a qualifying offer to Hextall, allowing him to become an unrestricted free agent.[2]

On August 25, 2014, the Lehigh Valley Phantoms signed Hextall to a one-year AHL contract.[3] He retired following the season.[4]

Personal life[edit]

Brett is the son of former NHL goaltender Ron Hextall (and grandson of Bryan Jr. and great-grandson of Bryan Sr.). Brett studied at the University of North Dakota, just like his grand-uncle Dennis.

Brett currently lives in Iowa City with his wife Mamie, who is a resident doctor.[4][5]
