In the 2002 NHL Entry Draft, Steen was selected in the first round by the Toronto Maple Leafs, 24th overall. He played his first game with the Leafs on October 5, 2005 during the season opener against the rival Ottawa Senators, and registered a minor penalty.
His first career NHL goal came in the next game on October 8 against the Montreal Canadiens. This goal marked the first time a Swedish father and son both scored in the NHL (beating Robert Nilsson by 21 days).
On November 24, 2008, Steen was traded by the Leafs, along with Carlo Colaiacovo, to the St. Louis Blues for Lee Stempniak. Steen often plays on a scoring line on the St. Louis roster, alongside Patrik Berglund and T.J. Oshie.
On July 1, 2010, Steen signed a four-year contract extension with the Blues.
Played for Sweden in:
- 2002 World U18 Championships

- 2004 World Junior Championships
- 2007 World Championships
Alexander Steen's father is former Winnipeg Jets star Thomas Steen, a forward who scored 817 points in 950 NHL games between 1981 and 1995. Although Steen was born in Canada, he, like his father Thomas (currently a Canadian politician) has dual Canadian and Swedish citizenship, and has chosen to represent Sweden in international hockey competition. Alexander has two surviving siblings — his youngest brother Amadeus died at the age of two months of a heart condition. His death was the motivation for Alex, along with family members, to create the Amadeus Steen Foundation to raise funds for, and offer support to, infant and child health care. Alex has a wife named Sofie, who is also involved with the helping to run the foundation. Alex and Sofie have 2 children.
