The wounds from the Blues’ exit from the NHL playoffs may still be fresh, but the start of the 2016-17 season is not that far away.
The Blues will open on the road to start the 2016-17 in Chicago to take on their arch rival Blackhawks. When these two teams get together it’s a big deal all by itself, but when you add to the equation it being a season opener, and the epic 7-game playoff series these two teams took part in during April, it’s going to be a must-see.
The home opener will be Thursday October 13th vs. the Wild. New Blues assistant coach and coach-in-wating Mike Yeo, will go up against his former team for the first time.
The entire NHL schedule will be released tomorrow.
