Based in St. Louis Missouri, the Blues were founded in 1967 as one of the 6 franchises created during the NHL’s expansion that same year. The Blues are named after the W. C. Handy song “Saint Louis Blues.”
St. Louis Blues Ticket Holders currently attend the team’s home games at the 19,150-seat Enterprise Center, the second home arena of the Blues. The team first played at St. Louis Arena from 1967 to 1994.
The Blues appeared in the Stanley Cup Finals in 1968, 1969, and 1970, but failed to clinch the championship all three times, making them the oldest active NHL team never to have won the Stanley Cup. Despite having never won a Stanley Cup championship, the St. Louis Blues have been a fairly successful franchise. In fact, beginning in 1980, the Blues would go on to qualify for the playoffs in 25 consecutive seasons.
One of the most notable St. Louis Blues players includes scoring sensation Brett Hull, nicknamed “Golden Brett.” Hull scored 86 goals in the 1990–1991 season—setting the record for most goals scored by a right-winger in a single season. Despite posting the second-best regular season record in the entire league in 1990–1991, the Blues were upset in the second round of the playoffs to the Minnesota North Stars, a defeat that was symbolic of St. Louis’ on-going playoff struggles.
St. Louis Blues Ticket Holders are a loyal fanbase. In fact, the St. Louis Blues sold out every home game in 2010 and 2011, and ticket sales continue to be strong to this day as fans know that a Stanley Cup win can’t be far away. All St. Louis Blues fans can get tickets to watch this talented team from Golden Tickets.
