Blues' Allen Earns First Win Of Season

News: Jake Allen stopped 24 of the 25 shots he faced for his first win of the season Saturday against Arizona.
Analysis: A great season-debut from Jake Allen, who got loads of offensive support in the blowout victory. Allen will continue to split starts with Brian Elliott this season, but if the 24-year-old get hot, he could just runaway with the starting gig. Allen is definitely one to keep an eye on.

Blues' Allen To Make Season Debut Saturday

News: Jake Allen is set to make his season debut in the net Saturday against the Coyotes, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Coach Ken Hitchcock hasn't given much insight into how large a portion of the goalie workload he plans on giving Jake Allen this season, but he should be a serviceable fantasy option nearly any time he starts. The Blues boast one of the better collections at both forward and defense, which should put Allen in position to come away with a win on his ledger more often than not.

Blues' Allen Strong In Preseason Win

News: Jake Allen stopped 14 of 15 Minnesota shots in a 4-1 victory Thursday.
Analysis: Jake Allen wasn't tested very seriously in this one - he didn't face his first shot until more than nine minutes into the game. He seems to be tuning his game well for the start of the regular season, when he will split starts with Brian Elliott.

Blues' Allen To Start Thursday

News: Jake Allen is lined up to start Thursday's pre-season game against Minnesota, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Analysis: Jake Allen and nominal starter Brian Elliott are alternating starts so far in the pre-season, a pattern that is likely to hold into the regular season the Blues appear poised to split their starts pretty evenly. As the rookie, Allen is likely to end up on the short end of the split, but his status as a legit top prospect (and Elliott's historical streakiness) could play into how the starts get divided up as the year goes on.

Blues Set To Go With Allen As No. 2 Goalie

News: Jake Allen is poised to enter the upcoming season as the Blues' No. 2 goalie, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Analysis: Coach Ken Hitchcock has already appointed Brian Elliott for the opening night start in the net, but Jake Allen's standing as one of the best goalie prospects in hockey should make him one of the league's more-used backups, particularly with Elliott having never entered a season as a No. 1 goalie. The 24-year-old Allen earned AHL Goalie of the Year honors in 2013-14 while playing for AHL Chicago, where he went 33-16-0 with a 2.03 GAA and .927 save percentage. His numbers were predictably less impressive in a 15-game cameo with the Blues in the lockout-shortened 2012-13 campaign, but he's developed significantly since then and should make for a good spot start option most any time he's guaranteed to be in the net.

Allen Is In Blues' Plans

News: GM Doug Armstrong indicated Tuesday that Jake Allen has earned the right to begin next season as one of the Blues' top two goalies, St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. "He's earned the right. He's the top American League goalie," Armstrong noted. "He's got that team in the playoffs, now we're going to see how far he can take it. He will be one of two. Who is partner will be will be discussed at the appropriate time, and that will be over the next few weeks."
Analysis: Both Ryan Miller and Brian Elliott are slated to become free agents this offseason, and Jake Allen's 2014-15 fantasy prospects clearly hinge on who ends up as the team's other goalie. We'd expect the Blues to try to bring back Miller, but it's unclear at this stage whether he's inclined to return to St. Louis.

Blues Reassign Allen

News: Jake Allen was reassigned to AHL Chicago on Tuesday.
Analysis: Jake Allen's demotion signals the Blues are now convinced that Jaroslav Halak has put his illness behind him and is at least ready to back up Brian Elliott for Tuesday's game vs. the Oilers. The 23-year-old didn't see any action during his latest stint with the parent club.

Blues Recall Allen

News: Jake Allen was recalled from AHL Chicago on Saturday.
Analysis: It appeared Jaroslav Halak (illness) would be fine to back up Brian Elliott for Saturday's contest after Jake Allen was sent down Thursday, but it looks like that's no longer the case. Allen should have another brief stay with the parent club with Halak not expected to be unavailable for much longer.

Blues' Allen Sent Back To AHL

News: Jake Allen was returned to AHL Chicago following Thursday's game.
Analysis: With Jaroslav Halak (illness) still feeling under the weather, Jake Allen was briefly called up to serve as Brian Elliott's backup for one game. Allen's demotion to AHL Chicago would seem to indicate that Halak is expected back soon.

Jake Allen

Blues Recall Allen

News: The Blues recalled Jake Allen from AHL Chicago on Thursday.
Analysis: Jake Allen was brought up to get another goalie on the roster with Jaroslav Halak still dealing an illness. Allen will back up Brian Elliott in Thursday's game against the Kings.

Blues Cut Allen

News: Jake Allen was assigned to AHL Chicago on Thursday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Jake Allen went a promising 9-4-0 with a 2.46 GAA as a rookie, but with Jaroslav Halak and Brian Elliott both healthy, there was no need for him on the NHL squad. He'll be the first one up for the Blues if injury strikes their goaltending ranks.

Blues Re-Sign Goaltender Allen

News: Jake Allen agreed to a two-year extension with the Blues on Thursday, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Jake Allen's extension helps solidify the goaltender position for the Blues, as well as give the organization some cap flexibility, due to the fact that the first year of the deal is a two-way agreement. The 22-year-old impressed in his rookie campaign with the Blues, posting a 9-4-0 record with a .905 save percentage.

Blues' Allen Stops 11 In Relief

News: Jake Allen came in for Brian Elliott against the Avalanche on Sunday. He played 22:37 and made 11 saves on 12 shots.
Analysis: Elliott had been playing well recently before this game, while Jake Allen has slowed after a good start. He's not likely to see much playing time as long as St. Louis is vying for playoff seeding.

Allen Shaky In Blues' Loss

News: Jake Allen allowed four goals on 19 shots in Friday's loss to Columbus, his first start in four games.
Analysis: Jake Allen did not do much to earn himself more starts with Friday's loss, especially considering Brian Elliott has not allowed a goal in three games. Look for Allen to see a start or two in the season's final week, but Friday's performance was not a solid one.

Blues' Allen Will Start Friday

News: Jake Allen will start in goal against the Blue Jackets on Friday, Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: The 22-year-old rookie has played well this season for the Blues, and with Jaroslav Halak still out with a groin injury, St. Louis will turn to Jake Allen on Friday in the second game of a back-to-back.

Allen Strong In Blues' Win

News: Jake Allen stopped 26 shots in Friday's 3-1 win over Columbus, his first win since being recalled from Peoria (AHL) earlier in the week.
Analysis: Look for Jake Allen to see a number of starts as St. Louis tries to tighten its grip on a tenuous playoff position. Allen has a 9-3 record in the season with solid peripheral stats; look for him to see a few more starts than Brian Elliott.

Blues' Allen In Goal Friday

News: Jake Allen will start at goalie Friday against the Blue Jackets, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Jake Allen has posted a 8-3-0 record this season with a 2.45 GAA. He has lost two consecutive decisions and is looking to right the ship on Friday against the Jackets.

Blues' Allen Assigned To AHL Peoria

News: Jake Allen was assigned to AHL Peoria on Saturday.
Analysis: Jake Allen got off to a fantastic start with the Blues, but he struggled in his past two outings and is headed back to the AHL. The Blues will likely lean on Jaroslav Halak for now, while hoping that Brian Elliott can eventually regain his form.

Blues' Allen Yanked Tuesday

News: Jake Allen allowed three goals on seven shots before being pulled early in the second period of Tuesday's loss to the Oilers.
Analysis: He was replaced by Jaro Halak, who stopped 12 of 12 and seems likely to be the starter Thursday against Los Angeles.

Blues' Allen Gets Tuesday Start

News: Jake Allen will start Tuesday's game against the Oilers.
Analysis: Jake Allen, who gave way to Jaroslav Halak in the Blues' last two games, will take aim Tuesday at an Oilers' squad that has dropped three games in a row.

Allen Takes Loss For Blues

News: Jake Allen gave up three goals on 19 shots Tuesday in a 3-2 loss to the Canucks.
Analysis: It was a shaky second period that sunk Jake Allen, as he gave up all three goals on the 14 shots he faced in the middle frame. That period aside, the young goalie has strung together some good starts. He may give way to Jaroslav Halak on Saturday, so stay tuned for news on that front.

Blues' Allen Gets Tuesday Start

News: Coach Ken Hitchcock said that Jake Allen will start Tuesday's game against the Canucks, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Hitchcock also added Monday that Jaroslav Halak will start Saturday in Edmonton, so thanks to that announcement, Jake Allen owners enjoying his recent strong run can plan accordingly this week.

Blues' Allen: Fifth Straight Win

News: Jake Allen made 27 saves in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Ducks. He now has five straight wins.
Analysis: Just keep this streak in perspective. The NHL eats its young goalies for lunch and dinner, and it wasn't that long ago that Jake Allen had slipped down the Blues' depth chart. But short term, you should stick in the spurs and ride him hard.

Blues' Allen To Start Saturday

News: Jake Allen will be between the pipes Saturday night against Vancouver, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
Analysis: Jake Allen is riding the wave of a four-game winning streak and is coming off his first NHL shutout.
