20. Alexander Steen
Forward, 2008-present; 548 games, 159 goals, 235 assists, plus-45 rating, 290 PIM (as of February 27, 2017)
Since arriving in St. Louis as part of a blockbuster deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs in November of 2008, Alexander Steen has established himself as an extremely dependable all-around player who often doesn’t get the respect he deserves around the league. For a short stretch, Steen was the Blues’ most valuable offensive contributor, but he’s always been a necessary piece, logging key minutes on both the power play and the penalty kill.
Steen has received votes for the Selke Trophy, the award for the best defensive forward in the league, on five different occasions since he joined the Blues, and he also received votes for the Hart Trophy (MVP) in 2013-14. He led the Blues with 62 points that season, and he finished second to Vladimir Tarasenko with a career-best 64 points in 2014-15.
Steen ranks 10th in franchise history in goals, assists and points and fifth in game-winning goals (32). His nine game-winning goals in 2013-14 are also tied for the sixth-most ever by a Blues player in a single season.
After being somewhat of a bust in Toronto, Steen has really made a name for himself in St. Louis. With a new contract that will keep him with the team through the 2020-21 season, he’s definitely got a shot to end up as one of the top 10 players in franchise history before it’s all said and done.
