St. Louis Blues Career Goal Scoring Leaders
The St. Louis Blues have been an NHL franchise since 1967, and while the team had some great years right off the bat, they have yet to win a Stanley Cup and have floundered quite a bit over the years. Still, the Blues have had some great players take to the ice, and here is a short list of the team’s all-time leading goal scorers to date:
Brett Hull (527)—Right wing Brett Hull had good genes on his side, as he is the son of former NHL great Bobby Hull. Hull began his career with the Calgary Flames but wound up playing most of it with the Blues, from 1987 to 1998. Hull leads the Blues all-time with 527 goals, and he had three astounding seasons with 70 or more goals for them. Hull’s best overall season was 1990-91, when he scored a career best 86 goals (third highest for a single season in NHL history) with 45 assists for 131 total points (also career high).
Bernie Federko (352)—Center Bernie Federko played most of his career in St. Louis, from 1976 to 1989, and he ranks second in franchise history with 352 goals scored in a Blues’ uniform. Federko scored 30 or more goals seven times; including what was arguably his best season in 1983-84. That year, Federko notched a career high 41 goals with 66 assists for 107 total points (also career best).
Brian Sutter (303)—Left wing Brian Sutter played his entire career in St. Louis, from 1976 to 1988, and ranks third in the team’s history with 303 goals. Sutter had his most prolific goal-scoring season in 1982-83, with a career high 46 goals, but his highest point tally was in 1983-84, with 32 goals, career best 51 assists for 83 total points.
Garry Unger (292)—Center Garry Unger was a journeyman of sorts who played for the Blues from 1970 to 1979, and he ranks fourth in franchise history with 292 goals. Unger scored 30 or more goals every season he played in St. Louis, and his best season there was 1972-73, when he scored 41 goals with 39 assists for 80 total points.
Pavol Demitra (204)—Left wing Pavol Demitra played in St. Louis from 1996 to 2004 and ranks fifth in Blues’ history with 204 goals scored. Demitra’s best season was arguably 1998-99, when he had a career high 37 goals with 52 assists for 89 total points.
