21. Jamie McLennan

1997-2000; 82 games, 38-27-8 record, .898 save percentage, 2.21 GAA, 7 shutouts; 2 postseason games, 0-1 record; 1998 Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy Winner

McLennan, who signed with the St Louis Blues following a near-death experience with bacterial meningitis in 1996, was a dependable backup during one of the most successful eras in Blues history.

Though he started only 30 games in his first season with the Blues, McLennan’s numbers were dominant, as he went 16-8-2 with a 2.17 GAA, a .903 save percentage, and two shutouts.

For his strong performance following his recovery, he was awarded the Bill Masterton Trophy for perseverance and dedication to hockey following the season. He was less successful in 1998-99, amassing a losing record and a sub-.900 save percentage.

He bounced back in limited action behind the dominant Roman Turek in the Blues’ Presidents’ Trophy-winning 1999-2000 season, going 9-5-2 with a 1.96 GAA and .903 save percentage in 19 games (16 starts).

His 2.21 goals-against average with the St Louis Blues ranks him fourth in franchise history. After three solid seasons in St. Louis, McLennan was selected by the Minnesota Wild in the 2000 expansion draft and went on to play five more NHL seasons.
