The Blues apparently needed to work through a bit of logistics to do so, but they have a star-studded cast of alumni coming back to honor Pavol Demitra and Igor Korolev. Both players, who wore number 38 during their respective tenures with the team, passed away in the plane crash that killed the entire Lokomotiv team on September 7th.â†µ
The team has established the Demitra-Korolev fund in their memory. which will help underprivileged children here and in Europe play hockey. The 50/50 raffle that night will benefit that fund. Making appearances to honor their fallen teammates will be Brett Hull, Geoff Courtnall, Curtis Joseph, Keith Tkachuk, and Scott Young. The tribute will be aired before the 7:00 game on FoxSports Midwest.
