St. Pierre was never drafted by an NHL team, despite a number of impressive seasons in junior hockey. He had 32 goals and 85 points in his second season with the Guelph Storm in 2001-02, an excellent follow-up to his rookie year in which he led all rookies with 69 points. He led the Storm to an OHL championship in 2004, scoring 110 points in the regular season, and leading all skaters with 35 playoff points, winning the playoff MVP trophy. He played the next two years in the AHL before making his NHL debut with the Chicago Blackhawks in 2005. He played 21 games with the Blackhawks over three seasons. In 2007, he also played 14 games with HK Atlant. He spent 2008-09 in the Boston Bruins’ organization, followed by a season with the Ottawa Senators’ system. In 2010, after playing just 38 career NHL games, he left for Europe, beginning the season with Karpat before joining Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk midway through the season.
