Hockey season may be off, but wedding season is definitely on.
Congratulations is in order for Blues forward Alexander Steen, who married his longtime girlfriend, Josefine, in Sweden last weekend. Josefine has been very active with the Blues' Better Halves in recent years doing charity work around the St. Louis area.
Steen's wedding was attended by many of his teammates, including Paul Stastny, Jaden Schwartz, Robby Fabbri, Patrik Berglund, Joel Edmundson, Robert Bortuzzo, Carl Gunnarsson and Scottie Upshall. In addition, former teammates such as Kevin Shattenkirk, Ryan Reaves, Steve Ott and Scott Gomez were also in attendance.
Vladimir Tarasenko wasn't in Sweden, but for good reason. He was just outside of Moscow, where he was attending a wedding reception for his friend Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals.
Once the celebrations wrap up, it will be back to business. And we're looking forward to October, when wedding bells will be replaced with goal horns.
Is it October yet?
