Numbers For Nerds

St. Louis has a reputation for being a bit of a goalie graveyard. Since the organization was part of the original wave of NHL expansion for the 1967-68 season, the Blues have had 66 goalies make an appearance, the most of any non-Original Six franchise. The longest any one goalie has stayed with the team is six seasons (four players have done this), with Mike Liut holding the franchise record with 347 games played, and Curtis Joseph the second most with 280. Both Jean-Sebastien Giguere (Ducks record holder with 447) and Guy Hebert (441) played more games in Anaheim, and Jonas Hiller (326) very nearly reached Liut's St. Louis mark despite beginning with the Ducks as a backup and being part of a couple split nets.

The Blues have had eight former Stanley Cup winners (Jacques Plante, Glen Hall, Eddie Johnston, Michel Larocque, Grant Fuhr, Tom Barrasso, Chris Osgood, and Martin Brodeur) tend the nets for them. Wayne Stephenson (backup for Philadelphia in 1975), Rick Wamsley (backup for Calgary in 1989), and Osgood (Detroit in 2008) are the only goalies to be part of a Stanley Cup winner after playing for St. Louis.
