Hull, then 22, had joined the Flames for a four-game stint in November and scored the game-winning goal in his first game giving the club a 4-3 win over the visiting Hartford Whalers.

He would play one more season for the Flames in 1987-88 before Calgary traded him to the St. Louis Blues along with Steve Bozek for Rob Ramage and Rick Wamsley.

Hull would go on to have a Hall of Fame career having been inducted in 2009. In 1269 NHL games, Hull scored 741 goals and 1391 points.

His 741 tallies place him fourth on the league’s all-time goal scoring list behind Jaromir Jagr, Gordie Howe and Wayne Gretzky.
