After 1,269 career games in the NHL, one would think Brett Hull would find being on the bench during the 2020 All-Star Game a little tiresome, but the former star was unable to keep a grin off of his face.

Hull was part of the coaching staff — that term used extremely lightly — for the Central Division’s All-Star lineup.

Winnipeg Jets forward Mark Scheifele was able to snipe a stellar goal during the contest between the two Western Conference teams, and the Hall of Famer was blown away.

With 741 goals to his name — fourth most in NHL history — there is no doubt that some of his teammates celebrated his tallies the exact same way.

Hull’s team was handed the 10-5 loss by the Pacific Division, but that didn’t stop him from celebrating every goal he could.

Colorado Avalanche star Nathan MacKinnon was beside him and there was surely going to be some solid recognition from the two-time Stanley Cup champion, as Hull dapped him up on the bench.

Hull was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2009 and made eight All-Star appearances during his time as a player.
