Jr. Blues To Retire #7 In Honor Of The Jost Family

Jun 30, 2011

For over 30 years the family of Jim and Ginny Jost has donated time, money, and sweat to give St. Louis area players a low-cost opportunity to continue and grow their hockey careers.  In that time, many of their own children and grandchildren have worn the Blue Note and were a big part of the team on the ice.  Hundreds of players have made their way through the program and moved on to higher levels of junior hockey, NCAA DIII, DI, ACHA, Minor Pro, and even the NHL. 

To honor the family that has given so much to the St. Louis hockey community, the Jr. Blues and Affton Youth Hockey are going to retire the number that was worn by most of the Jost hockey players that have worn the Blue Note.  A ceremony will take place before the Jr. Blues Home Opener on Friday, September 23rd, 7:45 PM at the Affton Ice Rink. Proceeds from the game will be donated to the Jim and Ginny Jost CBC Scholarship fund.  Help us celebrate the family that has given so much to Affton hockey.

More details will follow as they become available.
