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

19 of 21

3. Garry Unger

“Ungie”, who was acquired for Red Berenson in 1970-71, is often considered to be the first legitimate superstar in St. Louis Blues history. He came to the Blues as a 23-year-old, and he quickly ascended into his prime. Unger wasn’t really a “pure scorer”, relying more on speed, tenacity, and physicality to fuel his game,  but he put up pretty fantastic results in the goals column year after year.

Unger scored at least 30 goals in every one of his eight full seasons with the Blues, the longest such streak by any player in franchise history. He peaked as a scorer with the Blues in 1972-73, when he scored 41 goals, a nice addition to his 39 assists which allowed him to collect 80 points for the season. He ranks fourth all-time in franchise history in goals with 292.

Unger may not have been a highly-skilled scorer in the mold of a Vladimir Tarasenko or Brett Hull, but he found a way to get things done and put up great results for an incredibly long time. For that reason, he’s the third-best scorer in Blues history.
