ST. LOUIS — Twenty-nine years ago Monday, one of the most influential Blues of all-time had his moment of appreciation.

On March 16, 1991, Blues legend Bernie Federko saw his number 24 retired by the team he spend 13 years of his 14-year career with.

In those 13 years in St. Louis, Federko scored 352 goals and had 721 assists for 1073 points as a Blue.

Federko had 100 points in a season for four consecutive years and was the first player in NHL history to have at least 50 assists in 10 consecutive seasons.
