The St. Louis Blues and goaltender Jake Allen have agreed to terms on a two-year contract.
Allen led all rookie goaltenders with 22 wins (22-7-4) this past season, while recording a 2.28 goals-against average and a .913 save percentage. In addition, he tied a Blues rookie record with four shutouts while becoming just the second rookie goaltender in club history to post consecutive shutouts, on Oct. 30 vs. Anaheim and Nov. 4 vs. New Jersey (Ernie Wakely, 1969-70).
The 24-year-old Allen also logged 184:38 consecutive shutout minutes from Oct. 23 (third period vs. Vancouver) to Nov. 6 (third period vs. New Jersey), etching a new Blues rookie record.
Allen has accumulated a 31-11-4 record to go along with a 2.33 GAA, a .911 save percentage and five shutouts in 52 career games with the Blues.
