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

5 of 21

17. Scott Young

Young, a grizzled veteran who had already played for five different NHL franchises by the time he joined the St. Louis Blues as a 31-year-old in 1998, found new life while wearing the Bluenote. After two straight 24-goal seasons to begin his stint in St. Louis, Young caught fire during the 2000-01 season, leading the team with a career-high 40 goals while accumulating a career-high 73 points. His age began to show following that career year, but he still added 19 goals as a 34-year-old, and after three years away from St. Louis, he came back to the Blues for his final year in 2005-06 and scored 18 goals at age 38.

Young’s certainly not someone who went down in history as one of the most memorable Blues scorers ever, but considering his productivity, especially in a historically low-offense era of the NHL, he deserves recognition on this list.
