Blues taking a (University of) Michigan vacation

From StLouisBlues.com's Chris Pinkert:

As the preseason wraps up with tonight’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks, the Blues are hitting the road for a four-day team-building trip in Ann Arbor, MI.

The team will hold daily practices at the University of Michigan’s Yost Arena, but outside of that, the players will be free to relax and enjoy a short break before returning to St. Louis on Monday afternoon.

“It’s about being together and doing team activities,” said Blues defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk. “Having some team activities that we can just have fun with, along with some good stress-less practices up there, I think we’ll really enjoy it.”

Shattenkirk, who billeted with a family in Ann Arbor while representing the U.S. National Development Program, will watch the Wolverine’s ice hockey team on Sunday evening. His billet family’s son, Niko Porikos, wears No. 22 for the Wolverines.

Other plans include a little fly-fishing for goalies Jake Allen and Brian Elliott and a behind-the-scenes tour of the Big House for the coaching staff.
