Blues reassign Allen to AHL Peoria

Jaroslav Halak is healthy again, and that means Jake Allen finds himself back in the American Hockey League.

The St. Louis Blues assigned Allen to their affiliate in Peoria on Thursday, one day after Halak performed admirably in a 1-0 overtime loss to Colorado, stopping the first 19 shots he faced.

Allen started four straight games for the Blues while Halak was on the shelf, winning the first three. In five total appearances this season, the 22-year-old Allen is 3-1-0 with a 2.62 goals-against average and .895 save percentage.

Flyers' Hartnell can practice, 7-10 days from return

PITTSBURGH -- The Philadelphia Flyers won't have to wait much longer for their leading goal-scorer from a season ago.

Wing Scott Hartnell was cleared to return to practice Wednesday and is on track to play in a game in a week to 10 days, general manager Paul Holmgren said. Hartnell missed his 15th consecutive game Wednesday against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Hartnell, who had a career-high 37 goals last season, has been recovering from a broken left foot sustained in a Jan. 22 loss to the New Jersey Devils.

Holmgren also updated the status of injured defenseman Andrej Meszaros.

Hurricanes' Skinner day-to-day with concussion

Carolina Hurricanes forward Jeff Skinner has a concussion and is listed by the team as day-to-day.

Skinner, the team's second-leading scorer with seven goals and 14 points in 13 games, missed 16 games last season because of a concussion. He was injured last Thursday during Carolina's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs, during which he took a couple of hard hits and went helmet-first into the boards on one of those hits.

Skinner said after the game he felt fine; he practiced Friday and took part in a fan event that night. But he was unable to practice Sunday and sat out Monday's game at the Montreal Canadiens. He has not practiced this week.

Skinner's 14 points trail only Eric Staal (17) on the Hurricanes. Skinner scored 31 goals in 2010-11 on the way to winning the Calder Trophy, then scored 20 last season despite the time missed.

He signed a six-year, $34 million contract extension with the Hurricanes in August.

Quote of the Day

Hopefully [Jonathan] has a year that pushes us, that is the organization, to speak to him next summer and looking for [a long-term contract]. Because the thought process is trying to get a goaltender, and hopefully it's Jonathan, to be the stabilizer for this franchise.
