St Louis Blues Reverse Retro Leak Shows 1966 Prototype Logo on Yellow Jersey

Throwing back to an old uniform?


Throwing back to a uniform that was iced before the team played a game?

Now we’re talking.

According to a new toque, it appears that’s exactly what the St. Louis Blues will be doing during the 2022-23 NHL season.

Check out the new hat, courtesy of Twitter user @Hoss_A_Palooza. It shows a gold base with the prototype St. Louis Blues logo on the front — a musical note with the team name written over it in blue lettering:

This logo first appeared as the primary crest on the sweaters modelled by owner Sid Salomon III and general manager Lynn Patrick in 1966. While the Blues used the striping style and shoulders when they first stepped onto the ice for their inaugural season a year later in October 1967, the logo changed considerably to a style still in use by the club 55 years later.

We will expect to see this logo in a bonafide regular season NHL contest courtesy of the yet-to-be-released Reverse Retro series, expected to be released next month. The yellow base of the toque and the blue/white stripes featured are likely to both be present on the Blues’ Reverse Retro set along with that originally-rejected logo on the chest.

The St. Louis Blues previously wore a red version of their mid-1990s road uniform for their first kick at the Reverse Retro can back during the 2020-21 season.

Two months ago, a significant leak of 2022-23 NHL Reverse Retro logos appeared on the official team shop. While this leak gave us an early look at almost every upcoming Reverse Retro logo, it did NOT feature the St. Louis Blues.
