SPRINGFIELD, Mass. - Jake Allen of the Chicago Wolves has been named the American Hockey League's goaltender of the year.

The 23-year-old native of Fredericton, N.B., has a record of 32-16-3 in 51 appearances for the Wolves, helping them to a berth in the upcoming Calder Cup playoffs.

Allen ranks first in the AHL in victories, goals-against average (2.07) and save percentage (.927) as he tries to become just the second goaltender since 1984-85 to lead the league in all three categories.

Allen was selected by St. Louis in the second round (34th overall) of the 2008 draft and was named to the NHL All-Rookie Team last season after a successful 15-game stint with the Blues. He posted a 9-4 record with a .246 GAA, a .905 save percentage and a shutout over that span.

Allen has played 171 career AHL games with Chicago and Peoria over his four pro seasons, compiling a record of 83-74-10 with a 2.55 GAA, a .917 save percentage and 15 shutouts.
