blues.nhl.comJust listen to Blues’ legend Brett Hull: “I love the new uniform: it really gives a sense of a real classic uniform that inspires great play. When you put it on, it gives you an incredible sense of pride to wear it.”

The new St. Louis Blues hockey jerseys – both blue home and white away – were unveiled on Monday Aug. 25 at an Ice Breaker event in St. Louis. The new jerseys will be worn for this 2014-15 season, with Hull amongst the fans ready to don the new look.

According to the Blues, the jerseys will be available at shop.nhl.com as well as the True Blue Authentic Team Store in Scottrade Center.

“We’re going back to tradition,” said defenceman Alex Pietrangelo via blues.nhl.com. “It’s certainly exciting to be able to wear these. You can tell it’s going back to the traditional Blues, the history of the Blues. We love to represent that as players.

“I thought they did a great job of combining the old with the new.”

According to the Blues, the new uniforms reflect a modernized version of the classic look worn by the team from 1998-2007. The uniform leaves the Blue Note unchanged, symbolizing the club’s pride in one of the greatest logos in all of sports.

Constructed from all the latest advanced materials of the Reebok Edge 2.0 system, the jersey’s diagonal color striping on the sleeves has been straightened for a simplified, cleaner aesthetic. The same effect has been achieved with the return of stripes along the waistline.

The Blues joined the National Hockey League in 1967-68.
