ST. LOUIS - Of the hundreds of talented players who have worn the Blue Note over the last 50 seasons, only 22 men have shown the combination of skill and leadership that would earn them the designation of Captain. One of these men is Garth Butcher, who wore the "C" with pride during the 1991-92 season.
Butcher spent just over three of his 14 NHL seasons in St. Louis, playing 208 regular season games for the club. During that time, the fearless defenseman earned 46 points and racked up an impressive 508 penalty minutes, often standing up for his teammates and rarely backing down from a fight.
We caught up with him from his home in Washington to find out why he's looking forward to his return to St. Louis and how he's staying busy since retirement.
