NBC Adds Brett Hull to NHL Studio


NBC has signed former hockey star Brett Hull as a studio analyst for its National Hockey League coverage.

NBC Sports Coordinating Producer Sam Flood says he hopes Hull will give the network a trademark personality.

"I strongly believe that Brett's shoot-from-the-hip style, similar to what Cris Collinsworth brings to football and Charles Barkley to basketball, will be a huge hit with hockey fans in the U.S.," Flood says.

Hull will make his NBC debut Jan.13. He joins Bill Clement and former player Ray Ferraro in NBC’s studio.
