According to the team, the St. Louis Blues have signed starting goaltender Jake Allen to a four-year extension worth a total of $17.4MM. This comes after the team dealt Brian Elliott to Calgary last week, clearing the way for Allen to become their undisputed number one netminder. He will join Carter Hutton, who signed with the Blues earlier today, as their goalie tandem.
Last season, Allen played in 47 games with St. Louis, compiling a 26-15-3 record with a 2.35 GAA, .920 SV%, and six shutouts. Those 47 games are a career high, something that will likely change this year as he should see much more of the workload with Elliott gone. He also got into four postseason contests (Elliott was the starter for most of their playoff run), going 2-1-1 with a 2.49 GAA and a .897 SV%.
In his NHL career – all spent with the Blues – the soon-to-be 26 year old has a 57-26-7 record in 99 games with a 2.34 GAA and a .915 SV%.
