Bernard Allan “Bernie” Federko (May 12, 1956-) was an excellent playmaking center for 14 years in the NHL, primarily with the St. Louis Blues, and was the first player to register 50 or more assists in ten consecutive seasons. Bernie began his hockey career with his hometown Foam Lake Flyers of the Fishing Lake Hockey League where he led the league in scoring, and then joined the Saskatoon Blades of the Western Hockey League. He played three years in Saskatoon and led the WHL in scoring in 1975-76, setting a single season record with 187 points. The playmaking Federko was then taken sixth overall by the Edmonton Oilers of the WHA (World Hockey League) and seventh overall in the 1976 NHL Draft by the St. Louis Blues. Federko chose St. Louis and he was sent to play for the Blues minor league affiliate, the Kansas City Blues, where he led the league in scoring prior to being called up to St. Louis for the last 31 games. Based on his efforts in the Central Hockey League, he was awarded the CHL’s Ken McKenzie Trophy as Rookie of the Year, despite missing the second half of the season. Bernie posted three hat tricks in his first season. Federko played center for 13 years in St. Louis (1976-1989) and the Detroit Red Wings (1989-90). Federko led the Bluenotes in scoring eight straight seasons from 1978 to 1986, and then again in the 1987-88 season. He was the first player in NHL history to record 50 assists in ten straight seasons (1978-1988) and posted four seasons with 100 or more points. The two-time NHL All-Star holds many of the St. Louis Blues career franchise records before his career with one final season in Detroit. Bernie Federko tops the Blues list for most games (927), assists (721) and total points (1,073). Federko scored 369 regular season goals and added 35 playoff goals and 66 assists for 101 points in Stanley Cup contention. Bernie Federko was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2002. Following his playing days, Bernie returned to the Gateway City with the St. Louis Blues broadcasting crew as a color analyst.
Joseph Patrick Mullen (February 26, 1957-) opted to sign a free agent contract with the St. Louis Blues rather than join the Unites States Hockey Team that produced the “Miracle on Ice” and the eventual gold medal at the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, New York. Briefly bouncing from the minor to the big club, Mullen found himself on the one of the tops lines and was one of six Blues to top the 25-goal mark. Injuries marred his sophomore season, but he scored 40-plus goals in each of his next three seasons before being traded to the Calgary Flames in 1986. Continuing on his pace of 40-plus goals each year with the Flames, Mullen posted a career-high 51 goals, tied for the team high with fellow Hall of Famer Joe Nieuwendyck, in 1988-89 as Calgary marched to the Stanley Cup Championship and boasted nine players with 20 or more regular season goals. He led all scorers with 16 goals in the NHL playoffs that season. He also led all Flames that season in points (110), led the league in plus/minus (+51) and won the 1988-89 Lady Byng Memorial Trophy for the second time (1986-87) with only 24 penalty minutes. Following the 1989-90 season, Mullen was traded to the Pittsburgh where he helped the Penguins win back-to-back Stanley Cups in 1991-1992. He was an amazing plus-17 during the 1992 playoffs as the high-powered Pens, led by Hall of Famer Mario Lemieux, Jaromir Jagr, Kevin Stevens and Larry Murphy scored 95 goals. In Pittsburgh, Joe Mullen became the first American-born player to reach the 500-goal and 1,000-point plateaus. Joe Mullen was beloved and potent goal scoring forward 16 seasons in the NHL with the Blues (1981-1986), the Flames (1986-1990), the Penguins (1990-1995, 1996-97) and the Boston Bruins (1995-96). He was named to the 1988-89 NHL All-Star First Team and made three NHL All-Star Game appearances. Internationally, Joey played for Team USA at the 1984, 1987, and 1991 Canada Cup tournaments. Joe finished his career with 502 career regular season goals and 561 assists for 1,063 points in 1,062 games while posting a plus-163 plus/minus. He scored 60 career playoff goals and 46 assists in 143 games winning three Stanley Cup Championships. Joe Mullen was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2000.
