Blues_Alexander_Steen_2013 [2]In the shortened 2013 campaign, Alexander Steen had eight goals in 40 games and his career-high is 24 markers set in 2009-10. This season the 29-year-old forward already has 10 goals in nine games.

That hot start puts him on the same early pace as Brett Hull in 1989-90 and 1990-91 when he netted 72 and 86 goals respectively.

“I don’t think we should be comparing myself to Brett Hull,” Steen told reporters, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

For his part, Steen is giving linemates David Backes and T.J. Oshie a lot of the credit for his accomplishments.

“I’m enjoying playing with those two,” Steen said. “They work extremely hard. It’s been a pleasure for me to play with those two. Osh’s efforts on the forecheck, Backes’ reads and hits is what is creating all these situations for me.”
