Our St. Louis Blues-Inspired hockey art print reflects the history of one of the NHL's early expansion franchises beyond the original six. The Blues joined the league with five other teams in 1966 when insurance tycoon Sid Salomon Jr., his son, Sid Salomon III, and Robert L. Wolfson were awarded a franchise. The team is named after the famous W. C. Handy song "Saint Louis Blues" and since their inception they've worn the classic winged note blue and gold uniforms. The Blues hit the ice in 1967, playing originally at the old St. Louis Arena, known as the Checkerdome. A young coach named Scotty Bowman took over the bench early that season and guided the team to a winning first season.
The Blues have yet to strike hockey gold but have challenged as one of the leagues top Stanley Cup contenders for many years. Rosters stacked with Hall of Famers like Wayne Gretzky, Al MacInnis, Brett Hull, Adam Oates, Chris Pronger, and many more, carried the team to repeat playoff appearances. The Blues still hold the third longest playoff streak in North American professional sports history making the second season in consecutive years from 1980-2004.
