Off The Post: Blues Drop Game Six, Jordan Binnington Interview – The Blues lost Game Six 5-1. Their goaltender, Jordan Binnington didn’t have his best game and he was a little short with the media as a result. The Blues have been waiting 52 years to win their first Stanley Cup and now they’ll have to do it in Boston as the Bruins look to close them out and take home another title for their city.
Jordan Binnington began his hockey career with the Owen Sound Attack in the OHL from 2009 to 2013. He was selected by St. Louis with the 88th overall pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. Binnington would make his NHL debut under emergency conditions on January 14th, 2016 in relief of Brian Elliott. His rookie cards appear in Upper Deck Hockey sets from the 2014-15 season.
Binnington would sign a series of one-year, two-way contracts with the Blues from 2016 to 2018. He was recalled by the Blues on December 9th, 2018 and made his first NHL start on January 7th, 2019. In that game he made 25 stops and held the Philadelphia Flyers scoreless becoming the 35th goaltender in NHL history to earn a shutout in his first start. Binnington would continue to have success and quickly became the primary netminder for St. Louis down the stretch. Most impressively, he has started in every playoff game for the Blues this season.
The bulk of Jordan Binnington’s hockey cards on the market are from Upper Deck’s 2014-15 catalog of products. His Young Guns rookie card appears in 2014-15 Series Two, and he has premium autograph patch cards in The Cup. Binnington also has cards in Upper Deck’s AHL Hockey sets from 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17.
