Blues prospect Jake Allen was named the Canadian Hockey League's Goaltender of the Year on Saturday.

Allen, a 19-year-old native of Fredericton, New Brunswick, also won the Jacques Plante trophy with the best goals against average (2.20 GAA) in the QMJHL.

He went 29-14 in 45 games for the Drummondville Voltigeurs and Montreal Juniors, posting a .922 save percentage this season.

Allen, who was drafted by the Blues in the second round (34th overall) in the 2008 NHL Draft, also won a silver medal with Team Canada at the 2010 World Junior Championships.

The announcement came at an annual awards ceremony on Saturday at the Western Manitoba Centennial Auditorium, where Tyler Seguin was also named as the CHL's Top Prospect. Seguin finished the season atop the NHL's Central Scouting Rankings and is eligible to be drafted in June.
