ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Blues introduced the new RBK Blues uniform today at Scottrade Center prior to the final scrimmage of the Wendy Pleau Determination Cup.
The Blues' RBK Edge uniform system -- jersey, pants and socks, each in home blue and road white -- were designed by Fleishman-Hillard's sports and creative services teams in collaboration with the Blues.
Fleishman-Hillard, with its global headquarters in St. Louis, also designed the home and away uniforms the Blues wore from 1998-1999 through the 2006-2007 season. The Blues' colors -- blue, navy, gold and white -- as well as the classic Blue Note crest remain unchanged.
The National Hockey League and Reebok have teamed to create the RBK EDGE Uniform System™ to meet the performance demands of today’s NHL player. The result of more than two years of research and testing, the system features technologically advanced materials and fabrics that are more breathable, more water-resistant, more comfortable and more compatible with equipment.
The RBK EDGE Uniform System will be worn by all 30 NHL teams in their respective colors and designs. The introduction of this system for the 2007-08 season marks the first time in the history of North American professional sports that a uniform innovation has been implemented League-wide.
In preparation for the 2007-08 NHL regular season, the Blues will play seven preseason games beginning on September 16 vs. Atlanta at Scottrade Center. The Blues’ other preseason opponents are Dallas, Chicago and Minnesota, including other home games on Friday, Sept. 28 (Wild) and Saturday, Sept. 29 (Blackhawks).
