St. Louis Blues defenseman Colton Parayko (55), Hockey Hall of Famer Bernie Federko (C), the leading scorer in Blues franchise history and Blues mascot Louie visited Bridger Middle School in Independence on Wednesday, part of a two-day trip to various places in the Kansas City area. Parayko and Federko worked with students using EverFi's Future Goals Hockey Scholar, a web-based program that uses hockey to teach fundamental math and science concepts. Future Goals is an initiative between the NHL and the Players Association to teach STEM skills through hockey. The Blues play a preseason exhibition game Sept. 28 at the Sprint Center.
