    2017 Winter Classic

    I'm putting this in both the Cardinals and Blues forums since it involves the Blues and Busch Stadium.

    NHL Announces Game-Day Plans for Winter Classic, Alumni Game

    BLUES/Cardinals (News release) – The National Hockey League today announced game-day plans for the 2017 NHL Winter Classic Alumni Game featuring St. Louis Blues and Chicago Blackhawks greats on Saturday, Dec. 31 at 1:30 p.m. and the 2017 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic outdoor contest between the stars of today’s Blues and Blackhawks on Monday, Jan. 2 at noon at Busch Stadium.

    Cardinals help prepare Busch Stadium for Winter Classic

    ST. LOUIS -- The transformation started on Dec. 15, shortly after a truck carrying a 53-foot, 300-ton capacity refrigeration unit turned onto Clark Street, approaching Busch Stadium. It stopped for a short photo op, during which Cardinals president Bill DeWitt III and St. Louis Blues majority owner Tom Stillman emerged from the cab, donned Winter Classic stocking caps and talked glowingly about one of the most anticipated events to come to St. Louis in recent memory.

    For the next thirteen days, St. Louis becomes the epicenter of the hockey world. There will be more games played in this span than in the entirety of the Olympics. Many of them will be played by enthusiastic kids and amateurs, two will be played by retirees, and one will be the biggest professional game of the year outside of the Stanley Cup playoffs — but all of them take place in St. Louis. Rejoice in the splendor of the NHL Bridgestone Winter Classic, the eye of a hurricane of hockey that swirls around our town beginning this week and lasting until early 2017.

    Here are all the highlights.

    There will also be a game at Busch January 8

    If you weren't able to secure tickets to the 2017 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic or the Winter Classic Alumni Game - or you just know you can't get enough of seeing hockey outdoors - there's another opportunity to see a one-of-a-kind hockey game at Busch Stadium.

    The One Nation Classic will feature a skills competition from current Blues players, St. Louis' Greatest Pick-Up Hockey Game and a contest between local police officers and firefighters on the final day of ice at Busch Stadium.

    Tickets are only $10 each and include access to all three events. Tickets will also be available at the Busch Stadium Box Office beginning Jan. 3 through the day of the event. All proceeds benefit Blues for Kids, youth hockey development in St. Louis and Cardinals Care.

    I'm not a huge hockey fan but I love the Winter Classic.

    I'm glad they brought it to Busch
