Break out all your old jerseys St. Louis Blues fans. Nothing goes to waste this season.

If you have saved any of your old jerseys or were worried about any of the recent throwbacks going out of style, fear not. The Blues have got your back.

In 2021, St. Louis is going to wear a whopping five different styles of jerseys. So, if you’re a collector, you will be able to display all your uniforms this year.

Of course, the bulk of the games will be the regular home and away uniforms. St. Louis has 15 more home games where they will wear their regular, blue home uniforms.

The Blues have 26 away games with their normal, white road uniforms. It’s those other games that will feature something different.

The Blues will continue to wear their heritage uniforms – the ones most refer to as the Winter Classic jerseys – on Saturdays. This will almost guarantee a bunch of Saturday losses, since it seems like the Blues don’t play well in those uniforms.

Interestingly, as much as was made of the “vintage” jerseys and the reverse retro, they are barely going to be seen. The two jerseys will be on the ice for a total of four games.

The regular 1990’s style jersey, worn by Wayne Gretzky, will be worn against the Minnesota Wild in a back-to-back series on April 30 and May 1.

The reverse retro will bookend February. You’ll see a lot of red on February 4 against the Arizona Coyotes and against the Los Angeles Kings on February 22.

Technically, these dates are not set in stone. If the Blues win their first game in the reverse retros, they could theoretically continue to wear them afterward, as that is a team decision.

These dates are guidelines. Each jersey, at least with new jerseys, typically has contractual obligations to be shown a certain amount of times.

So, the two games for the reverse retro are simply the contractual dates. If the Blues chose to do so, they could wear them more, but don’t expect that to happen.

With so little time between games some days, the team probably won’t want to spring something on the equipment staff so late when they already have a calendar of what uniforms to set out for what games.

I’m just a little shocked that the reverse retro only gets two games. As much as the NHL was pushing it prior to the season, you’d think they would want those on display as much as possible.

Maybe those awful Anaheim Ducks unis held everyone else back. If you want to see the full list of which uniform will be worn on what days, check out the team website.
