ST. LOUIS–The NHL is on a Christmas break until Sunday, when teams will be able to resume practice and hopefully resume the season on schedule despite a rise in COVID cases which have put many players in league protocols.

In the meantime, the St. Louis Blues are unwrapping a bit of a present for fans, showing off the gear goalie Jordan Binnington will wear when the Blues play in the NHL Winter Classic against the Minnesota Wild at Target Field on New Year’s Day.

Binnington’s helmet pays tribute to two former Blues goalies. Galen Hall started the franchise’s first game between the pipes against the Minnesota North Stars in 1967, and Mike Liut is still the team’s all-time leader in wins.

“He’s actually my agent,” Binnington told the team’s website. “I figured on top of the percentage I give him from my salary, I should also showcase him a little bit and give him some love.”

Puck drop for Blues-Wild is scheduled for 6pm on Saturday January 1. The game will be carried on TNT
