Scott Mellanby
St. Louis Blues - Assistant Coach
[ Back to Coaches Index ]

Scott Mellanby rejoined the Blues organization on June 1, 2010, taking the position of Assistant Coach on July 15, after having served as a pro scout with the Vancouver Canucks.

The 6-1, 210-pound right wing led his team to the Stanley Cup playoffs in 11 out of 20 seasons, notching 53 points (24 goals, 29 assists) and 216 penalty minutes in 132 career playoff contests. Mellanby made trips to the Stanley Cup Finals with Philadelphia in 1987 and Florida in 1996. He also helped St. Louis advance to the 2001 Western Conference Finals against Colorado. He helped Edmonton reach the 1992 Campbell Conference Finals against Chicago, and led the Flyers to the 1989 Wales Conference Finals against Montreal.

The native of Montreal, Quebec registered 840 points (364 goals, 476 assists) and 2,479 penalty minutes in 1,431 NHL regular-season games with Philadelphia, Edmonton, Florida, St. Louis and Atlanta. Of Mellanby's 352 career goals, 135 have come on the power play and 51 have been game-winners. He has recorded at least 40 points in a season on 11 occasions, including 50 points or more seven times. He also tallied 20 or more goals in a season eight times, and reached at least 20 assists on 13 occasions. He finished his career tied for 21st with Luc Robitaille on the NHL's all-time games-played list and has played in 70 or more regular-season games 13 times, including 80 or more on four occasions.

Mellanby, who served as Panthers' team captain for four consecutive seasons from 1997-2001, remains Florida's all-time leader with 157 goals, 66 power-play tallies and 354 points. He also ranks second on the team's all-time list with 229 assists, and made his lone NHL All-Star Game appearance as a Panther in 1996.

Mellanby never played a game in the minor leagues after making the jump to the NHL with Philadelphia late in the 1985-86 season following his sophomore season at the University of Wisconsin. Mellanby, who was selected by the Flyers in the second round, 27th overall, in the 1984 NHL Entry Draft, helped Canada capture the silver medal at the 1986 World Junior Championships, notching nine points (five goals, four assists) in seven games.
Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
