The St. Louis Blues demoted Jake Allen back to the AHL. He's been up and down lately but hasn't played in the NHL this season.
This is a clear sign that Jaroslav Halak is healthy enough to at least dress. Brian Elliott has been lights-out lately, so it will be interesting to see how St. Louis proceeds here. Allen isn't a big fantasy factor this season, but that can change once the logjam clears up. Jan 5 - 3:08 PM

He will start the 2013-14 season with the Chicago Wolves of the AHL, as St. Louis will go with Jaroslav Halak and Brian Elliott as their goaltenders. The Blues also assigned Dmitrij Jaskin, Ty Rattie, Sergey Andronov, Keith Aucoin, Jani Hakanpaa and Joel Edmundson to the minors.

Jake Allen will get the start in goal against the Stars Saturday night.

He has an uphill battle to make the Blues' roster with Jaroslav Halak and Brian Elliott ahead of him on the depth chart. Jordan Binnington will also see some game action Saturday night.

Jake Allen will probably start the 2013-14 campaign in the AHL.

The Blues don't plan to carry three goaltenders like they did for part of last season. "I just think he's got to continue to improve," coach Ken Hitchcock said. "I think he's a guy we see daily improvement, weekly improvement, he's a young guy that's learning how to play. He's in the unique position where he probably got games ahead of the curve through necessity last year and took advantage of it. Now everybody is excited." Jaroslav Halak and Brian Elliott will enter the season as St. Louis' keepers, but Allen does have some value in keeper leagues.

Jake Allen knows he's heading into training camp in a difficult position.

Allen stepped up with a 2.46 GAA and .905 save percentage in 15 games last season as a rookie, but he's far from a lock to make the 2013-14 squad. "It’s a situation where we still have (Elliott) and (Halak) up there on one-way deals, so it’s a bit of a different situation for me," Allen said. "Obviously you want to be there, but you have to keep things in perspective and bide your time. I had a good season last year, but that’s just a step. I think I still have to prove myself in camp." Allen's newly signed two-year deal is a two-way contract next season and will turn into a one-way deal in 2014-15. Brian Elliott and Jaroslav Halak's contracts are both set to expire in the summer of 2014, so it would make sense if Allen spent the 2013-14 campaign in the minors and then the Blues re-signed one of Elliott and Halak to play alongside Allen in 2014-15. That being said, there's still a chance that all three netminders could make the Blues' team out of training camp.

St. Louis Blues sign goalie Jake Allen to two-year contract.

Beat writer Jeremy Rutherford reports the deal is a two-way contract in year one and a one-way deal in year two. Allen led all rookie goalies with nine wins in 2013 and his 2.46 GAA and .905 save percentage earned Allen a spot on the NHL's all-rookie team. Allen is currently behind Jaroslav Halak and Brian Elliott on St. Louis' depth chart. There's a chance Allen could open next season with the Blues, but that seems unlikely barring injury or a trade.

Jake Allen made 15 saves on 19 shots in the Blues' 4-1 loss to the Blue Jackets Friday night.

With Jaroslav Halak expected to miss the remainder of the season, Allen and Brian Elliott should be owned in 12-team leagues. With the loss tonight, the 22-year-old rookie is 9-4 in this 48-game shortened season.

Jake Allen is expected to start Friday versus Columbus.

Brian Elliott has posted back-to-back shutouts, so he gets the call for the Blues in Thursday's match against Minnesota. Allen posted 26 saves in a 3-1 over the Blue Jackets on April 5 in his lasting outing.

Jake Allen backstopped the Blues to a 3-1 win as he made 26 saves against the Blue Jackets on Friday night.

It has been a bit of a roller coaster ride for Allen, who was sent down March 30, then recalled again days later when Jaroslav Halak went down with a lower-body injury. The 22-year-old was very solid in his first NHL start since March 19. He and Brian Elliot figure to split starts until Halak is back.

Jake Allen will play between the pipes on Friday.

It will be Allen's first start since he was summoned. He's expected to split the goaltending duties with Brian Elliott while Jaroslav Halak recovers from a lower body injury.

St. Louis Blues recall Jake Allen from AHL Peoria.

Allen was sent down Saturday but was recalled after Jaroslav Halak left Monday's game in the first period. While we still don't know the severity of Halak's injury, it seems obvious he'll miss at least Thursday's game against Chicago. Allen had a 2.45 GAA and a .906 save percentage in 12 NHL games this season. It's unclear if Allen or Brian Elliott will get the start Thursday.
