The entire St. Louis squad is finding it very difficult to light the lamp. Despite the goal scoring drought, Alexander Steen has managed to put up five points in 11 April games. Sadly enough, that makes him second on the team in scoring for the month. He is averaging almost 20 minutes per game so he should be in your lineup based on opportunity alone. (Updated 4/23/13).
Alexander Steen was limited to just 43 games last season because of a concussion and suffered a drop-off to 28 points (15 goals) after two straight seasons wtih 20-plus goals. He returned late in the regular season and played a full-time role in nine playoff games, so there's every reason to think he'll be ready to roll when the season kicks off in October. Steen has played mostly on the left wing for the St. Louis, but now it looks like he'll get first crack at the third-line center job, capably filled by Jason Arnott in 2011-12. Ice time should not be a problem, as Steen is a trusted member of the team who plays both special-team units. In theory, the Blues have enough forward talent to outfit three scoring lines. While not a gifted scorer himself, Steen's savvy enough to get to the right spots. Injuries the past few years have afforded Steen minutes as a top-six forward, so we'll have to see what life is like as full-time third-liner and how it works out for him as a center.
