After shuffling up and down between the Vancouver Canucks and the minors for four seasons, David Bruce put it all together for the Peoria Rivermen of the IHL in 1990-91. He scored an incredible 116 points in 60 games and earned a 12-game call-up to the St. Louis Blues. He didn't do much for the Blues, but his banner year was enough to get him selected by the San Jose Sharks in that season's expansion draft. He set NHL career highs across the board during the Sharks' inaugural season: 60 games, 22 goals, and 16 assists.
