St. Louis Blues: Top 20 Goal Scorers in Franchise History

10 of 21

12. Mark Hunter

Mark Hunter, like the aforementioned Perry Turnbull, was definitely a player who could hold his own as an enforcer in addition to a scorer. The brother of Dale Hunter, who ranks second in NHL history in penalty minutes, Mark had over 100 penalty minutes in eight of his 12 NHL seasons. While that was how he made his name throughout most of his career, Hunter had an interesting stretch during his three-year stint with the St. Louis Blues where he scored 112 goals in 218 games.

Hunter, though not an exceptionally skilled skater or puck mover, won his battles with an exceptionally hard shot, and that strategy seemed to work better in St. Louis than anywhere else. In his first season with the Blues, 1985-86, the then-23-year-old Hunter looked to be the total package, leading the team with 44 goals. That total that exceeded his previous career-high through four seasons with the Montreal Canadiens by an unbelievable 23 goals.

Hunter continued to put the puck in the net during his subsequent two seasons in St. Louis, scoring 36 goals in 1986-87 and 32 in 1987-88. He was packaged with Doug Gilmour in a trade to the Calgary Flames after 87-88, though, and the Blues apparently let him go at the right time. After scoring 22 goals in 1988-89 with Calgary, he never reached 20 goals in a season again over the final four years of his NHL career.
