The St. Louis Blues have re-signed goaltender Jake Allen to a two-year contract.
Friday's announcement came from Doug Armstrong, executive vice president and general manager.
Allen, 22, led all rookie goaltenders last season with nine wins (9-4-0) and a 2.46 goals against average while he ranked second with a .905 save percentage. The 6-foot-2, 195-pound goaltender posted the best win percentage (.692) for a Blues rookie in franchise history (at least 10 games) while he became the first rookie since Curtis Joseph in 1989-90 to record at least nine wins.

The Fredericton, New Brunswick native was drafted by the Blues in the second round, 34th overall, of the 2008 Entry Draft.
