The red carpet event of Friday night was filled with pride and excitement. It was one of many activities where fans had the opportunity to meet the biggest stars in the NHL. Fans fell in line along the red carpet with their Blues jerseys in hand waiting for autographs and pictures while interacting with the mascots. The excitement was amped up with the Blues and the City of St. Louis serving as the host of the All-Star Game as well as the 2019 Stanley Cup Champions.
St. Louis has hosted the All-Star Game twice before, in 1970 and 1988.
