3. Reed Low (2001-07 with St. Louis)

Despite a very short career that at least saw him be loyal to the Blues to no end, Low played 250 games with St. Louis.  He finished off with a handful with division rival Chicago, maybe just for the fun of it.

But still, he had 3 goals and 16 assists for 19 career NHL points during his time in St. Louis. He’d only also have no goals with Chicago, no assists or points to speak of there.

What made Low last, however, was his physique- 6’4″, 235 is nothing to sniff at! And even just like Reaves, he totaled the same number of career PIM as he did- 694.

OK, fine, off by 1 minute. But, who cares about technicalities in how long a guy fights?

That’s just a short list of some of the tough guys the Blues have had in their franchise’s history. Though it’s a dying art form, maybe someday they’ll have another guy like Reavo, because that guy was no slouch in slinging it!
