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

The fans love it, and it looked like they were having fun. It was great to see this city [Columbus]. They had been waiting a couple years for this game. They did it right.
