Expected The Blues will face Minnesota in the 2021 Winter Classic—making their second outdoor appearance. The last time St. Louis was in it, they debuted the throwback they wear as a third jersey today. Will we get a white version of that or something new?
Speculation Since learning about the throwback fourth jerseys, I’ve been wondering if the Blues (and Kings) were a test case in 2019-20. It seemed odd to me that they’d wear the 1994 throwback jersey for a couple of games without any real reason. Usually these things are done to commemorate an anniversary or some other special event. That wasn’t really the case for this jersey so I’m wondering if Adidas and the NHL were using them this year to gauge fan reaction. Either way, I could certainly envision it coming back in 2020-21.
