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

6 of 21

16. Red Berenson

Berenson, one of the first St. Louis Blues, joined the team right after the start of its inaugural 1967-68 season, getting traded to St. Louis with Barclay Plager from the New York Rangers. He was the club’s top goal scorer during its youth, leading the Blues in goals for the franchise’s first three seasons of existence, before he was traded for fellow high-scoring forward Garry Unger during the 1970-71 season. Berenson had the first two 30-plus-goal seasons of any player in Blues history, scoring 35 in 1968-69 and 33 in 1969-70.

Berenson rejoined the Blues via trade in 1974, and though his scoring ability had dissipated to an extent by that point, he still gave the Blues four more solid seasons, including an age 36 season where he scored 20 goals and an age 37 season where he scored 21. He’s eighth in franchise history with 172 goals, and especially considering that he was such an effective scorer in a low-offense era of the game, he rightfully earns a spot on this list.
