Blues to celebrate Steen's 1,000 games on Thursday

by Chris Pinkert / St. Louis Blues

The St. Louis Blues will celebrate Alexander Steen's 1,000 games played milestone with a special pregame ceremony before Thursday's 7 p.m. matchup with the Winnipeg Jets.

Fans are encouraged to be in their seats by 6:45 p.m.

Last Saturday, Steen became the 13th player in Blues history and the 30 active player in the League to reach the milestone when he dressed in his 1,000th game in Winnipeg - a town where he grew up while his dad, Thomas Steen, starred in 14 seasons with the Jets.

"It's funny how things work out," Steen told stlouisblues.com. "I mean with all the injuries I've had and all the games you play, and add to it that Winnipeg didn't have a team for the majority of my hockey career - the fact that my 1,000th game (fell) on a day when we were back in Winnipeg to play the Jets, it's crazy."

Steen ranks fifth in Blues history in points (494) and could soon become just the fifth player in franchise history to record 500 points with the club.
