ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - The St. Louis Blues honored Bobby Plager this past weekend, with a public visitation, private service and procession that traveled the same route as the team's Stanley Cup parade of 2019.

The public visitation took place Friday, from 4 to 8 pm, at Enterprise Center.

The Celebration of Life service was held at 2 pm Sunday afternoon. There were feature tributes from former players, coaches, broadcasters, family, and teammates.

"It's hard enough to connect with a small group of people," Brett Hull said. "But what do you say about a guy that connects with two million people? The hockey fans of St. Louis had a connection with Bobby (Plager) that was second to none."

"Bobby taught us through is love of people (and) his love of the city of St. Louis and his love of the St. Louis Blues that being a member of the St. Louis Blues comes with a greater responsibility," broadcaster Chris Kerber added.

A procession down Market Street followed the service. Plager was buried in a private ceremony at Bellerive Gardens Cemetery.
