Original. Vintage. Old-school.

Call them what you want, but there's one definitive word that accurately describes the St. Louis Blues jersey for the 2017 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic, and that's "perfect."

"It's great. I think all of us like the old-school look," said Blues captain Alex Pietrangelo. "This is the look that started the Blues and we get to carry it on for the Winter Classic. It's a great mix, a great blend of color and history."

The Blues unveiled their jersey for the Winter Classic on Wednesday at 10 a.m. prior to the game against the Chicago Blackhawks at Scottrade Center. The long-time rivals will meet again on Jan. 2, 2017 at Busch Stadium for the NHL's premier outdoor event.

"We are excited to unveil our jerseys for the 2017 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic," said Blues chairman Tom Stillman. "In celebration of our 50th anniversary, we are proud to pay tribute to our original uniforms and the franchise pioneers who first wore them in 1967."
