Default Just found a Hidden Treasure in my old cards

This amazing card has been hidden in an old box for 15 years when I was a kid that never used his stick. I'm happy to say I'm now grown up and my stick has satisfied my own personnel style(and a lot of woman) for many years since then.....

Thank you Brett Hull for showing me the way...

he held dual citizenship and played a big role in Team USA's run to the World Cup title in 1996.

+1, as a kid Brett spent all his time in the USA and had dual citizenship from birth (born in ON), but lived in the states his entire life. His father also born in ON Canada, moved and played his entire career in Chicago and only played in Canada for Winn (WHA) and the Canadian Cup, Brett never established residence in Canada, and is the reason he chose to play for the USA in the Olympics and World Cup

I seem to recall Hull getting passed over and holding a grudge against Canada so looked it up and found this:

Hull is the only member of the group to be born outside of the U.S. and would probably never be going into the American Hall had he been invited to join Canada for the 1986 IIHF World Hockey Championship in Moscow.

The Golden Brett was a college player at the time and was upset when he was passed over. USA Hockey soon gave the dual citizen a call and the rest is history.

I see all of your arguments. I always like to consider guys like Zach Parise and Brett Hull (especially Brett) to be Canadian based on their backgrounds. With Brett it's tough. His father is one of the best hockey players of all time and is Canadian, he was born in Canada, and got most of his training in Canada. You could go either way with him, though

What do you mean Brett spent all of his time in the US? He moved to Winnipeg when he was young and lived in Canada until he was drafted
