Blues recall Allen, place Oshie on IR

The St. Louis Blues have recalled goaltender Jake Allen and placed forward T.J. Oshie on injured reserve, the team announced Tuesday.

Forward Adam Cracknell also was recalled from Peoria of the American Hockey League.

Allen has been recalled under emergency conditions due to goaltender Jaroslav Halak’s lower body injury, which he suffered during the first period in the Blues' 4-1 win against the Minnesota Wild on Monday night.

Allen has appeared in 12 games with the Blues this season, posting an 8-3-0 record, 2.45 goals-against average and a .906 save percentage.

Oshie has dressed in 30 games this season, tying for fifth on the club with 20 points (seven goals).

Cracknell has dressed in eight games for the Blues this season, posting two assists.

Quote of the Day

Yeah, it was a pretty special moment for me. Today was my Dad's [55th] birthday. I have a lot of family in town, so it was a special moment for me to score my first one today. A win definitely would have capped it off, but you can't have everything.
