(KSDK Sports) -- Unlike Denver and Minneapolis, St. Louis is not known for producing a high number of winter Olympic athletes.

But this year St. Louis will be well represented during the Olympic break, thanks to the St. Louis Blues. The team will send 10 of its players, representing six nations, to the winter games in Sochi.

And to honor this accomplishment, the team has created this poster featuring all ten Blues; David Backes, T.J. Oshie and Kevin Shattenkirk of Team USA. Defensemen Jay Bouwmeester and Alex Pietrangelo of Team Canada. Vladimir Sobotka, who will represent the Czech Republic. Patrik Berglund and Alexander Steen will wear Team Sweden's sweater and Jaroslav Halak, will be playing for his home country of Slovakia and Vladimir Tarasenko will be playing for host country Russia.

The poster featuring the Blues' Olympians will be given away to during a Fan Appreciation Night on February 4th. All fans in attendance to see the Blues take on the Ottawa Senators, will receive the poster.
