4. Brian Sutter

Sutter, who played his entire 12-season NHL career in St. Louis, had some prolific seasons as a scorer. After breaking out in a major way in 1978-79, beating his previous single-season high by 32, Sutter finished the year with 41 goals. He once again led the Blues in goals during the 1981-82 season, when he lit the lamp 39 times, and during 1982-83, when he put the puck in the net a career-high 46 times. Over the course of his career, Sutter had four different seasons with goal totals in the 30s, as well as the aforementioned two seasons during which he scored more than 40.

Sutter dealt with a back injury during the later part of his career and relied mostly on his reputation and physicality to keep him in the NHL, but he’d already made his mark on the organization by that point. Sutter, who is third all-time in games played and points in Blues history, also is third all-time in goals with 303. Considering the fact that he had single-digit goals in a quarter of his NHL seasons, the fact that he managed to score goals in roughly 39 percent of his career games is quite impressive. It’s good enough to earn him a Top 5 spot among the greatest goal scorers in Blues history.
