The St. Louis Blues Hockey Champs Visited 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. on Tuesday afternoon following the completion of their four-game, 10-day road trip to Canada and Long Island, NY.
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 Tuesday’s visit, as did former Blues Chris Butler and Chris Thorburn.
