St. Louis Blues
While the Missouri General Assembly was considering a bill that would make the St. Louis Blues the official state hockey team, the franchise won the 2019 Stanley Cup championship. Senator Karla May of St. Louis introduced the bill in May, the Blues won the championship on June 12 and Gov. Mike Parson signed Senate Bill 210 into law on July 11. Though the Blues have been in existence since the National Hockey League’s 1967 expansion, the 2019 championship was the team’s first.
