Footloose with ED FITKIN

WILL THE REAL BOBBY HULL please stand up? … If that question were asked in the Hull household at Point Anne, Ontario, it wouldn’t be Chicago’s Golden Jet who would rise to his feet… It would be Mr. Hull, Bob’s father, the original Bobby Hull and still, as far as the family is concerned, THE Bobby … Chicago’s great star is Robert to the Hull clan… You’ll agree, I’m sure, that Robert (Bobby) Hull is the epitome of left-wingers but perhaps you didn’t know that he became a left-winger against his wishes… He wanted no part of the portside position when he broke into the NHL.
