Steen staying humble through incredible start
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.”
