ST. LOUIS (AP) - The NHL All-Star Game could be headed for St. Louis if planned improvements to Scottrade Center are completed.

The Blues and the city are in the midst of a $64 million renovation of the 24-year-old facility. The first phase - including a new scoreboard, new restrooms, three new concession stands, LED lighting, a new sound system and other infrastructure improvements - is already done.

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman says "If all the upgrades are completed ... there will be an All-Star Game here." St. Louis hosted the Chicago Blackhawks in the Winter Classic at Busch Stadium a year ago.

Bettman made his remarks before the Blues hosted the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday night.
