Barret Jackman won the Calder Trophy as the NHL’s Rookie of the Year for the 2002-2003 season. He was the Blues first draft choice in 1999 and played a game during the 2001-02 season but he became a household name the following year when he had a plus-23 rating with 190 penalty minutes, creating a reputation as a bruising defenseman who was difficult to create scoring chance against. Jackman’s selection as Rookie of the Year put him ahead of Detroit superstar Henrik Zetterberg, a remarkable feat considering the Swede’s gifted talent and offensive abilities.
