St. Louis Blues captain Ryan O’Reilly celebrated the success of his fellow team St. Louis Cardinals Albert Pujols’ 700th career home run through a Twitter message on social media. Pujols successfully etched his name to the group of existing three sluggers who achieved this feat in MLB history.
The hockey sticks weaved a melodious tapping sound that wrapped around the Blues ice, yesterday. In the special video message, Ryan shouted out, “Hey Albert, on behalf of the entire St. Louis Blues, congrats on 700 dingers”.

Ryan waved his hockey stick in imitation of hitting a ball, as the other Blues teammates tapped their sticks on the ice while cheering for Pujols. On Friday he hit his 700th home run and joined Barry Bonds, Hank Aaron, and Babe Ruth in the 700th MLB club.
With the NHL season just around the corner, the Blues got to set loose some of their tension and indulge in celebrating this joyous day. In the past few days, there have been talks about the Blues captain’s contract signing, but things seem to have settled down.
Ryan indicated that his contract extension or matter related to this can wait until the end of the regular season. It’s his fifth season with the Blues after he was acquired in a trade with Buffalo Sabres and was named as the captain on December 23, 2020.
He stated, “I definitely think this is where I want to be and move forward and such like that”. “I think that stuff will play out on its own. I’m just keep trying to focus on the season and the guys and being ready here. We’ll see how things go.”
