Blues assign Elliott to AHL for conditioning stint

ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Blues assigned goaltender Brian Elliott to the Peoria Rivermen of the American Hockey League for conditioning.

Elliott will start for the Rivermen on Friday against Oklahoma City and Saturday against Lake Erie before returning to the Blues following Saturday’s game.

Elliott, 27, has appeared in 11 games for the Blues this season posting a 3-6-1 record including a 3.65 goals against average and a .851 save percentage. Elliott hasn't played since March 5 as Jaroslav Halak and Jake Allen have taken over the goaltending duties.

Quote of the Day

For us it's a little bit different. I've never been in front of this much media. This is more than we've ever had to deal with in Tampa. I guess we're on a little bit bigger stage now. It's nice, you have to enjoy it. This doesn't happen too often.
