NHL announces that Blues will host the NHL All-Star game in 2020

The NHL announced on Tuesday that St. Louis and the Blues will host the 2020 Honda NHL All-Star Weekend from Jan. 24-26 at Enterprise Center. This will mark the third time St. Louis has hosted NHL All-Star activities, joining 1988 and 1970 which were both held at the St. Louis Arena.

St. Louis has been awarded the NHL All-Star Game just two years after hosting another one of the NHL’s premier events, the 2017 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic.

“This is a great day for not only Blues fans, but for the city of St. Louis,” said Blues Chairman Tom Stillman.  “Our city, our great fans and our corporate partners have shown tremendous loyalty to the Blues since the team’s inception in 1967 and landing a major event such as the NHL All-Star Game is a testament to their relentless passion and support.”

The 2020 Honda NHL All-Star Weekend will include the 2020 NHL All-Star Skills and the 2020 Honda NHL All-Star Game. All-Star Weekend will feature various hockey-themed events, entertainment and activities.

“We’re extremely excited to be hosting the 2020 Honda NHL All-Star Weekend in St. Louis,” said Blues President and CEO of Business Operations Chris Zimmerman. “The support we have received from the City of St. Louis, coupled with ongoing investments from the Blues’ ownership group, have facilitated the dramatic transformation of Enterprise Center and were critical to winning the bid for our first NHL All-Star Game since the building opened in 1994.”
