So, lots of fans were wondering -- who is this familiar person they are hinting at?

It's you, the fans who will kick things off at the Enterprise Center, the organization announced on Friday.

"In 2016, the St. Louis Blues created an anthem tradition at their Salute to Military Night by asking fans to sing in support of the nation's veterans. Beginning with Opening Night on Oct. 23, the Blues are encouraging fans to extend that tradition to every home game at Enterprise Center in the 2021-22 season," the Blues stated on their website.

The team goes into great detail on why they decided to start the new tradition.

"The National Anthem is a time of pride and reflection. A moment when home and visiting supporters alike come together to recognize we are a part of something bigger than ourselves," the Blues said.
