With no championship title to call their own, St. Louis hockey fans have been singing the blues for a long time. St. Louis Blues Hockey Club operates a professional ice hockey team that entered the National Hockey League in 1967 but has yet to capture a Stanley Cup championship. Despite many playoff appearances, St. Louis boasts just two appearances in the final round of the NHL playoffs during back-to-back seasons in 1969 and 1970. The franchise plays host at St. Louis' Scottrade Center. An investment group led by former New York Knicks president Dave Checketts has owned the Blues since 2006.
