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

12 of 21

10. Keith Tkachuk

Keith Tkachuk joined the St. Louis Blues near the tail end of his prime, coming over in a trade for Michael Handzus and Ladislav Nagy in March of 2001. Tkachuk, who had two 50-goal seasons and another couple seasons with over 40 goals in his time with the Winnipeg Jets/Phoenix Coyotes franchise, wasn’t quite that productive with the Blues, but he was a great offensive forward for nine seasons nonetheless.

In terms of productivity, Tkachuk’s best season with the Blues was his first full one in St. Louis, as he scored 38 goals and added 37 assists in 73 games. He had over 30 goals in the next two seasons after that, also, and he’d add four more seasons with 20-plus goals before retiring as a member of the Blues following the 2009-10 season.

Over 543 games with the Blues, Tkachuk had 208 goals, which ranks fifth in Blues history all-time. While he lacked elite productivity in a single season and was more of an in-front-of-the-net power scorer more than a true sharpshooter, Tkachuk just cracks the Top 10. He’s one of the most impactful all-around players in Blues history, and he very much deserves his position.
