22. Jacques Caron

1971-73; 58 games, 22-22-10 record, 3.90 GAA; 12 postseason games, 4-7 record

Caron played just 58 games during his two-year St Louis Blues career, but he was decently effective, particularly during the 1971-72 season.

Joining the team as a complement to Ernie Wakely, Caron played in 28 games that year and went 14-8-5 with an impressive 2.52 goals-against average and a shutout to his credit. He played a prominent role in the club’s trip to the Division Semifinals that season, starting nine playoff games and winning four while putting up a 3.13 GAA.

Caron was much more serviceable in the first round than he was in the second, when he started three of the four games of the Blues’ four-game series loss to the Boston Bruins, getting pulled for Wakely in two of them.

Caron came back for 1972-73 but was less effective, going 8-14-5 with a 3.53 GAA and one shutout while giving way to Wayne Stephenson in net.

Caron saw action in three of the five games during the Blues’ first-round series loss to the Chicago Blackhawks, taking the loss in two of them while failing to earn a decision in the third.

He departed St. Louis for Vancouver following that season.
