St. Louis Blues

St. Louis Blues release schedule for 50th anniversary season

Along with celebrating their 50th anniversary season in 2016-17, the St. Louis Blues also will treat fans to the Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic against the Chicago Blackhawks at Busch Stadium.

The Blues, who reached the Western Conference final for the first time since 2001, open their 2016-17 season with back-to-back games. They are on the road for an Oct. 12 game against the Blackhawks before returning home to face the Minnesota Wild a day later in the home opener.

The Blues’ first Winter Classic Game, an outdoor hockey game being played against the Blackhawks at Busch Stadium, is set for Jan. 2, 2017.

The Blues’ schedule also includes 11 Saturday night home games.

Among the other schedule highlights are a Nov. 23 home game against the Washington Capitals, featuring superstar Alex Ovechkin and former Blues forward T.J. Oshie. The Blues also play host to the defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins on Feb. 4.

Right after Christmas, the Blues will be home for a season-long six-game stretch through Jan. 10.

Ten of the Blues’ 15 games in March will be played on the road, including the team’s second five-game road trip.

The final regular-season home game is set for 5 p.m. April 9 against the Colorado Avalanche.

Anyone interested in purchasing season tickets, which also are available in half-season and 12-ticket packages, should call 314-622-BLUE (2583) or visit stlouisblues.com/tickets.

The Blues will place single-game tickets on sale later this summer.
