by St. Louis Blues / Press Release

ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis Blues are asking all fans - as well as any visiting Chicago Blackhawks fans - to join in honoring our nation's veterans in starting a new Veteran's Game tradition in St. Louis.

On Wednesday, Nov. 9 before the Blues and Blackhawks face-off on the ice, retired Naval Petty Officer, 1st Class, Generald Wilson will step aside to allow all fans in attendance to join together in singing the national anthem. The Blues are asking fans to sing proudly to honor the contributions, the courage and the heart of all those who have served the country with pride.

With this simple yet symbolic gesture, the Blues hope to show the veterans that everyone, regardless of our differences or even the teams we root for, are proud to be Americans and thankful to those that have worked - and fought - to keep our country safe.

Tickets for the Nov. 9 game vs. Chicago are available at the Scottrade Center Box Office and online at
