9. Jeff Brown (1992-93)

71 regular season games, 25 goals, 53 assists, -6 rating, 58 PIM; 11 postseason games, 3 goals, 8 assists, +3 rating, 6 PIM

It’s easy to think first of guys like Scott Stevens, Al MacInnis, and Chris Pronger when considering great seasons by Blues defensemen. One of the best, however, belongs to a guy who tends to get lost in the cracks of franchise folklore: Jeff Brown.

In terms of his primary responsibilities as a defender, Brown wasn’t fantastic; he had a minus-6 rating for a team that scored more goals than it allowed. As far as his offensive point production, however, Brown was spectacular. He averaged upwards of a point per game, and the fact that he managed to score 25 goals with Brett Hull and Brendan Shanahan up front as 50-plus-goal scorers was incredible, especially considering that the Blues finished 18th in the league in scoring.

While Brown had a very steady career during the late 80s and early 90s, he bounced around and struggled with injuries for the rest of his time in the NHL and had just one more season with over 10 goals in his remaining five seasons. His 92-93 campaign could easily be considered the highlight of his NHL career.
