It has been awfully slow around the Blues organization for the last few weeks, but that won’t be the case for much longer. Training camp opens September 17, and the team will hit the ice for the first time on the 18th. With the season just around the corner, apparently plenty of Blues players are already in town and working out. Guys like T.J. Oshie, David Backes, and Carlo Colaiacovo made it into town this past week, and new goalie Jaroslav Halak is expected to arrive in town on Wednesday. Can’t wait until the team gets back out there on the ice.
Also, the team has finalized their TV deal for the upcoming season. Fox Sports Midwest will air 75 games on their network, and Versus is expected to pick up another five. That means 80 of the 82 games are expected to be on TV, so we shouldn’t have any trouble getting a good look at the team this year.
