49. Jaroslav Halak
Goalie, 2010-14;159 games, 83-47-19 record, 2.23 GAA, .916 save percentage, 20 shutouts
Jaroslav Halak wasn’t extremely popular among a fanbase that traditionally adores its goaltenders, perhaps because he was injury-prone and twice–in both 2011-12 and 2012-13–had injuries that prevented him from performing in the playoffs. A quick look at his statistics, however, reveals that he was actually very effective, even though he played for the Blues during an era that was very friendly to goalies.
Despite spending less than four full seasons in St. Louis, Halak is second all-time among Blues netminders in shutouts, fourth in goals-against average, second in save percentage, and sixth in wins. His name also litters the single-season leaderboards in every one of those categories. He was a co-winner of the William M. Jennings Trophy in 2011-12 with Brian Elliott, and he also received votes for the Vezina Trophy that season. The fact that he was never able to lead the Blues on a playoff run was frustrating, but there’s no denying that Halak was one of the better regular-season goaltenders in Blues history.
