Opposing players and fans didn’t always like his tactics, but the St. Louis Blues honored one of their former stars this week. Now, a couple of game-worn Chris Pronger jerseys as well as the warmups worn by this year’s team before Monday night’s matchup with Nashville with the special patch are being auctioned for charity.
The two game-worn jerseys are from Pronger’s historic 1999-2000 season when he won the NHL’s Norris and Hart trophies. He was the first defenseman to win the Hart since Bobby Orr.
Twenty-six warmup jerseys and some autographed pucks are also part of the auction, with proceeds going to Blues for Kids.
