ST. LOUIS - NHL Network analysts selected the League's Top 20 wingers and revealed those rankings in a recent TV special.

St. Louis Blues forward Vladimir Tarasenko ranked fourth on the list, trailing only Chicago's Patrick Kane, Tampa Bay's Nikita Kucherov and Boston's Brad Marchand.

Here's what had to say about ranking Tarasenko at No. 4:

"Tarasenko has scored at least 37 goals, 73 points and six game-winning goals each of the past three seasons, and has led the Blues in points in each of them. He had an NHL career-high 75 points (39 goals, 36 assists) last season and an NHL career-high 40 goals in 2015-16. The 25-year-old had 64 power-play points (29 goals, 35 assists) and 21 game-winning goals the past three seasons, and has become one of the best shooters in the game. He scored on 13.6 percent of his 286 shots on goal last season and is at 13.8 percent for his NHL career. The Blues have qualified for the playoffs in each of Tarasenko's five NHL seasons."
