AFFTON — The St. Louis Jr. Blues will host their annual Brendan’s Buddies Game Saturday, March 7 at Affton Ice Rink. The Jr. Blues will wear vintage Brentwood Blazers jerseys as they take on the Peoria Mustangs at 1 pm.

The game will be held in honor of the Jr. Blues’ number one fan, Brendan Staub, and his charity, Brendan’s Buddies. The custom jerseys will be auctioned off, and all proceeds will go to Brendan’s Buddies. 

Brendan is a former Affton Americans hockey player and the son of Jr. Blues goalie coach Mark Staub. He suffers from an undiagnosed white matter disease that affects his brain and impairs his vision. Brendan is a fixture at Jr. Blues home games, serving as an operations coordinator and DJ. 

The Staub family has helped to create Brendan’s Buddies, a charity that assists families throughout the St. Louis area in dealing with the myriad costs associated with treating children with severe illnesses.

The Brentwood Blazers were the original Junior B hockey club in St. Louis. They were formed in the early 1970s and are still well-known in the St. Louis community. 

This event was originally scheduled for Feb. 28. It has been rescheduled to March 7.
