It’s Such a Pleasure to See the Hockey Revival in St. Louis

ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Blues have enjoyed a 54% increase in viewership this season according to Nielsen Media Research, including a 3.5 household rating in St. Louis compared to a 2.3 rating at this juncture last year. The Blues rank fourth in local market TV ratings among U.S.-based NHL teams, behind Pittsburgh, Buffalo and Detroit.

“Once again our fans show their dedication and support of our team with these remarkable ratings,” said Blues CEO Mike McCarthy. “Sold out crowds night after night at Scottrade Center and viewership doubling from last year are true signs that our fans are dialed into this team.”

The Blues will play a franchise record 10 home games this December starting this Thursday, Dec. 9 against Columbus. Overall, the Blues will host nine of their next 11 games at Scottrade Center where they own an 8-2-1 (.773) record.
