NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The St. Louis Blues of the NHL were on the ice in the Lowcountry on Sunday as the team spends a few days in Charleston taking a break from their regular season schedule.

The team flew into town early Saturday after their game in Winnipeg and is scheduled to be here until late Tuesday.

After their hour long workout at the Ice Palace in North Charleston on Sunday morning, the team took some time to hang out with the Charleston Junior Stingrays, a group of 10-13 year olds. The Blues skated on the ice with the kids, signed autographs and took pictures with the fans.

Even though this is the first time in town for most of the team, Charleston seemed to be growing on them quickly.

"We spent some time golfing and fishing yesterday" team captain David Backes said. "seeing some of the community and how involved and enthusiastic they are about hockey means a lot. The kids got to come out on the ice with us afterwards and it was a great day."
