What's old is new again for the St. Louis Blues in 2019-20.

The defending Stanley Cup champions unveiled their vintage jersey Saturday, a remake of their blue, yellow and red design they wore between 1995-98.

The jersey redux comes complete with the trumpet patches on the shoulders. Some of the greatest players in Blues history sported the uniform in its heyday, including Hall of Fame Famers Wayne Gretzky, Brett Hull, Al MacInnis and Chris Pronger.

Fans might get a warm feeling remembering the Blues greats who wore the jerseys, but some players, like Winnipeg-born forward Alex Steen, also feel inspired by the design.

"I grew up in this era, so it's a little nostalgic for me," Steen said in a post on Twitter. "I remember Wayne Gretzky coming to Winnipeg in this jersey."

But now fans will remember their favorite modern-day players clad in those uniforms, including captain Alex Pietrangelo, who was the first to model them in images posted to the Blues website.

"I saw it briefly. [Pietrangelo] was talking about it earlier. It looks really good," Blues forward David Perron said. "The new kind of look of the old-school look is awesome."

The Blues will wear the full uniform for three home games, Nov. 21 against the Calgary Flames, Feb. 27 vs. the New York Islanders and March 31 against the Detroit Red Wings. Fans can pre-order the jerseys now either online or at the STL Authentics team store at Enterprise Center with shipping or pickup starting on or about Nov. 19.
