The name on the building may have changed a handful of times since opening in 1994, but there’s been no change to this arena serving as the home of NHL hockey in St. Louis for over two decades. Brett Hull, Chris Pronger and Wayne Gretzky have all hit the Scottrade Center ice in a Blues jersey since the grand opening of this structure built on the grounds of the former Kiel Auditorium.

St. Louis Blues Stadium

Blues fans would love to see a Stanley Cup banner raised to the rafters at the Scottrade Center and it’s not unreasonable to imagine the players have the exact same itch. Missouri’s pro hockey club hasn’t trekked beyond the Conference Finals in the Scottrade Center era, but there’s still been a lot of glorious stuff that Blues fans can recall going down in their rink. The most memorable moment? We figure completing a 4-0 sweep of Dallas in 2001 was a remarkable feeling.

Attendance for Blues games has been fairly good over the past half-decade, although the building has dipped to below 90% capacity for one season in the ’10s. Did St. Louis fans and a familiar arena help give the Blues a home ice advantage in 2014-15? A little bit. The Blues won three more games at home versus their total away from the Scottrade Center. Sadly for St. Louis, their first round playoff knockout included two out of three home contests where the Minnesota Wild skated away with the victory.
