St. Louis Blues To Attend Yale’s ‘White Out For Mandi’ In Honor Of Mandi Schwartz

BewXdwnCEAEVIhxSometimes in sports, there are moments that become far more important than the game itself.

The St. Louis Blues will create such a moment when they attend the Yale women’s ice hockey game Friday to honor Mandi Schwartz, the late sister of Blues winger Jaden Schwartz.

Schwartz was a 2010 first round draft pick, but the excitement that stemmed from such a life-changing moment was sobered by the fact that his sister, who was diagnosed with Leukemia in 2008, was in the hospital. Although she received a transplant, Mandi passed away in April of 2011.

Yale and the women’s hockey team honor their teammate’s memory every year with a White Out For Mandi game. This year, Jaden and his Blues teammates will be in attendance. St. Louis is currently in the middle of a three-game stretch in the New York area, and will bus to Connecticut to attend the game.
