ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – The youth hockey club from Fairview Heights, IL,  will play its first game of the season on home ice Saturday. That home ice being Scottrade Center in downtown St. Louis.

In October, the U.S. Ice Rink was shuttered because of a collapsed mine underneath the rink. Since that time the Southern Illinois Ice Hawks have been playing all of their games away. But the St. Louis Blues heard about the team’s plight and offered to put down ice at Scottrade. The Ice Hawks now practice and play home games at Scottrade.

Saturday will be their first official home game, but Friday night the Blues threw the team a party and while they practiced.
