The league announced the winners today.
Steen led all players with 11 goals, scoring in nine of 10 games and on 35.5% of his shots on goal, to help the Blues pick up 16 out of a possible 20 points (7-1-2).
Crosby paced the NHL with 21 points (8-13—21) in 13 games to lead the Penguins to first place in the Metropolitan Division (9-4-0, 18 points).
Niemi posted a 9-1-2 record with a 1.72 goals-against average, .924 save percentage and two shutouts in helping the Sharks earn a League-best 22 points (10-1-2).
Steen’s performance in October is especially notable given the 29-year-old is a pending unrestricted free agent. Certainly nobody can expect him to keep scoring on a third of his shots, but it’s a safe bet his cap hit will be going up from its current $3.4 million.
The Blues did talk to [Steen about a contract] last summer, but he chose to wait and concentrate on the season.
