ST. LOUIS - Fans attending the Bob Plager jersey retirement night on Feb. 2 are encouraged to be in their seats for a pregame banner-raising ceremony beginning at 6:30 p.m.

To accommodate the ceremony, puck drop for the game between the St. Louis Blues and Toronto Maple Leafs has been moved to 8 p.m.

Plager, who was acquired by the Blues on June 6, 1967 and has been with the organization for all 50 years, will become the seventh player in Blues history to have his number retired, joining No. 2 Al MacInnis, No. 3 Bob Gassoff, No. 11 Brian Sutter, No. 16 Brett Hull, No. 24 Bernie Federko and his brother, No. 8 Barclay Plager.

Bob and Barclay Plager join Maurice and Henri Richard (Montreal Canadiens) as the only brothers to have their numbers retired by the same team in NHL history.
