St. Louis Blues Hockey Champs Visit The President in the Oval Office

After a championship parade, a Stanley Cup Tour around the world, a ring ceremony, a Hockey Hall of Fame visit and a banner-raising on Opening Night, only one more celebration remained for the Stanley Cup Champion St. Louis Blues, and that was a visit to the White House.

The Blues accepted their invitation from President Donald Trump and made a stop at the nation’s capitol in Washington, D.C.

The tradition of championship professional sports teams visiting the White House can be traced back to 1924 when the World Series Champion Washington Senators were invited by President Andrew Johnson.

Every current member of the Blues’ championship roster attended, as did former Blues Chris Butler and Chris Thorburn.
