Steen Named NHL\'s First Star for October
WIth 11 goals in 10 games, Alexander Steen has been named the NHL\'s First Star for the month of October.

ST. LOUIS – The National Hockey League (NHL) announced today that Blues forward Alexander Steen has been named the NHL’s First Star for the month for October. Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby and San Jose's Antti Niemi were named No. 2 and No. 3 Stars, respectively.

Steen, 29, is off to the best start of his career, leading the NHL with 11 goals, tying for second with four power-play goals, and sharing fourth with 16 points overall.

Currently, Steen is riding a career-best five-game goal streak which also matches San Jose’s Patrick Marleau for the longest in the NHL this season.

The Winnipeg, Manitoba native is just the third player in the last 20 years to register 11 goals in his team’s first 10 games, joining the Blues’ Scott Young (2000-01) and Atlanta’s Ilya Kovalchuk (2003-04). Steen’s four power-play goals are his highest total since scoring seven times in 2009-10, while his two game-winning goals share the team lead with T.J. Oshie and share fifth overall.

In addition, the 6-foot-0, 212-pound forward serves as the only NHL player with a pair of game-winners in the final minute of a game this season.

For a franchise perspective, Steen has become the first Blue since Kevin Miller (1993) with at least 16 points through the team’s first 10 games. He also tied Scott Young (2000-01) and Brett Hull (1989-90, 1990-91) for the second fastest start in Blues history by reaching the double-digit goal plateau in the first nine games of the year.

In 294 career games with the Blues, Steen has accumulated 17 game-winning goals, tying Gino Cavallini, Geoff Courtnall and Joe Mullen for 15th all-time.

Steen is an Olympic hopeful for Team Sweden at the upcoming 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. Steen has previously represented Sweden on four occasions, including the 2003 and 2004 World Junior Championships and most recently, the 2007 World Championships.
