Are you sad about having to say goodbye to those awesome St. Louis Blues Winter Classic jerseys? Well get happy because they're coming back.
The Blues' baby blues were a big hit during their 4-1 win against the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday and the team announced on Wednesday that the vintage jerseys will be seen again this season.
St. Louis plans to roll them out six more times in 2017; Jan. 7 vs. Dallas, Feb. 4 vs. Pittsburgh, March 11 vs. the New York Islanders, March 25 vs. Calgary, April 2 vs. Nashville and April 9 vs. Colorado.
The uniforms were modeled after the ones the Blues wore during their first season in 1967-68 and feature the font, ribbed crewneck collar, color and logo from the original.
"This is the look that started the Blues and we get to carry it on for the Winter Classic," defenseman Alex Pietrangelo told the Blues website when the uniforms were unveiled. "It's a great mix, a great blend of color and history."
