Blues postpone Pronger jersey retirement to 2021-22 season

It'll be a little while longer until we see No. 44 hanging in the Enterprise Center rafters

ST. LOUIS — The Enterprise Center will have to wait a bit longer to add another retired number to the rafters.

On Monday, the Blues announced they had postponed the jersey retirement of former Blues defenseman and captain Chris Pronger's No. 44.

The ceremony was originally scheduled for this season, but has now been moved to the 2021-2022 season due to limited attendance allowance this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. An exact new date for next season has not yet been announced.

Pronger was with the Blues from 1995-2004, where he played in 598 games scoring 84 goals and tallying 272 assists in St. Louis.

Pronger was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2015. When his number is retired, it will join Bob Gassoff, Barclay Plager, Brian Sutter, Bernie Federko, Al MacInnis, Brett Hull and Bob Plager among other Blues players with numbers retired.
