History Of The St. Louis Blues
The St. Louis Blues joined the NHL as part of the league’s first wave of expansion in 1967. The team was named after the famous W. C. Handy song ‘St. Louis Blues’ and was one of the six teams that doubled the size of the NHL to twelve teams when they became part of the league along with Minnesota North Stars, Los Angeles Kings, Philadelphia Flyers, Pittsburgh Penguins and California Seals.
The condition of the aging St. Louis Arena would not have helped if a formal expansion bid had been made by the city, but they did not. In fact, St. Louis ended up with an NHL team simply because the Chicago Blackhawks team owners pressed the league to put a team in the city over a bid made by Baltimore. The Blackhawk owners, the Wirtz Family, also owned the St. Louis Arena.
The NHL President at the time, Clarence Campbell, said the geographic location of St. Louis made the suggestion of skipping Baltimore in favor of St. Louis make a lot more sense. A 16-person partnership did finally make a formal bid to the NHL and the franchise was awarded in 1966 which led to the extreme makeover of St. Louis Arena increasing seating capacity from 12,000 to 15,000.
The St Louis Blues team colors are blue, gold, navy blue and white and they play in the Central Division of the Western Conference.
Top players from the Blues include Bernie Federko (1976-1989), Brett Hull (1987-1998), Brian Sutter (1976-1988), Gary Unger (1970-1979), Al McInnis (1994-2004), Chris Pronger (2008-present), Mike Liut (1979-1985), Pavol Demitra (1996-2004), Keith Tkachuk (2000-2010) and Barclay Plager (1967-1977).
