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.

Quote of the Day

I was going nuts and I saw [Subban], he was going crazy, and the ref had no idea where to go. [Subban] was skating to me, and I was skating to him and the ref was right in between us and I don't know, I kind of hit him pretty hard, I thought, but those were some emotions and I'm pretty sure he understands that.
