ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - The Blues five-game home-stand continues Tuesday when they host the Buffalo Sabres at Scottrade Center at 7:00pm.

On this  Veterans Day, goalie Brian Elliott will wear a special mask. It was delivered after practice Monday by 92-year-old Charles Rohde.  The World War II Veteran was at Normandy on D-Day. The St. Louisan has been awarded five Bronze Battle Stars from the United States Army.

The mask was designed by Elliott's regular artist at Head Strong Grafx and honors both American and Canadian military. The mask will only be worn Tuesday night. It will later be auctioned off with proceeds benefiting charity.

The entire Blues team will wear camouflage jerseys during warm-ups that will be will signed and raffled off.

The Blues also had a familiar face back at practice: TJ Oshie was on the ice Monday. He's been out for two weeks with a concussion.  It's still not clear when he'll be back in the lineup.
