The St. Louis Blues will drop the puck on a three-game round-robin tournament on Aug. 2 when they meet the Colorado Avalanche. In addition, the team will also meet the Vegas Golden Knights on Aug. 6 and the Dallas Stars on Aug. 9 before the Stanley Cup Playoffs officially begin.
The round-robin tournament will determine playoff seeding for the top four teams in the conference. All of the Blues' round robin games will be played at Rogers Place in Edmonton, which was named the NHL's hub city for the Western Conference. The Eastern Conference will play its games at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto.
While the round-robin games are underway, 16 other teams in will compete in the Stanley Cup Qualifiers, a best-of-5 series to determine the final eight spots in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Once those teams are determined, a 16-team playoff, each round a best-of-7 series, will begin.
Game times and the broadcast schedule will be announced at a later date. For a complete list of Stanley Cup Qualifier matchups, visit NHL.com.
