If you weren't able to secure tickets to the 2017 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic or the Winter Classic Alumni Game - or you just know you can't get enough of seeing hockey outdoors - there's another opportunity to see a one-of-a-kind hockey game at Busch Stadium.
Former Blues Brett Hull, Chris Pronger, Peter Stastny, Kelly Chase, Cam Janssen, along with former St. Louis Cardinal players Jim Edmonds and Kerry Robinson, are among a group of players participating in St. Louis' Greatest Pick-Up Hockey Game, which will be played at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 8 at Busch Stadium during the One Nation Classic closing ceremonies.
Blues Chairman Tom Stillman and St. Louis Cardinals President Bill DeWitt III will each captain a team of Blues, Cardinals and local celebrities in the game, which will serve as one of three major events in one day to wrap up the Winter Classic festivities in St. Louis.
The One Nation Classic also includes a skills competition at 11:30 a.m. with current Blues players as they battle for locker room bragging rights. After the pick-up game, local police officers and firefighters will take the ice for a game at 2:15 p.m.
Players schedule to appear in the Pick-Up Game are: Jim Campbell (#10), Kelly Chase (#39), Mike Crudale (#54), Chris Danforth (#15), Bill DeWitt (#2), Blake Dunlop (#19), Jim Edmonds (#15), Bobby Gassoff Jr. (#3), Bob Hess (#23), Brett Hull (#16), Blaise Ilsley (#39), Cam Janssen (#55), Jim Johnson (#13), Reed Low (#34), Donn Lux (#17), Jeanne Maritz (#10), Steve Maritz (#6), Ted Martin (#1), Darren Pang (#40), Chris Pronger (#44), Bruce Racine (#29), Rob Ramage (#5), Jamie Rivers (#6), Kerry Robinson (#0), Peter Stastny (#26), Larry State (#22), Tom Stillman (#19), John Tudor (#30), Bill Wallace (#20), John Wensink (#18), Chris Zimmerman (#9), Mike Zuke (#21).
Rosters are subject to change.
Tickets for all three events are $10 and on sale now by visiting stlouisblues.com/onenationclassic. Tickets will also be available in person at the Busch Stadium Box Office beginning Jan. 3 through the day of the event. All proceeds will benefit youth hockey development in St. Louis through Blues for Kids, and Cardinals Care.
