Congratulations to the Stanley Cup champion St. Louis Blues came pouring in from athletes from several sports on social media.

Some of the biggest names in hockey gave a shout out to the Blues for their first championship in 51 NHL seasons. They clinched with a 4-1 win against the Boston Bruins in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final.

Pat Maroon, the Blues forward who scored seven points in 26 Stanley Cup Playoff games, shared his excitement for bringing the Cup to his hometown.

Most NHL players shared their excitement for goalie Jordan Binnington, who was in the American Hockey League until Jan. 5 but set a new NHL rookie record with 16 Stanley Cup Playoff wins, and center Ryan O'Reilly, who won the Conn Smythe Trophy less than a year after the Blues acquired him from the Buffalo Sabres on July 1.
