NEW YORK (KMOX) - The St. Louis Blues have a representative on the NHL’s 2012-13 All-Rookie Team.

The league announced Saturday that goalie Jake Allen joins forwards Brendan Gallagher (Montreal), Jonathan Huberdeau (Florida) and Brandon Saad (Chicago Blackhawks), as well as defensemen Jonas Brodin (Minnesota) and Justin Schultz (Edmonton).

The 22-year-old Allen led rookie goaltenders in wins (9), goals-against average (2.46) and save percentage (.905), while ranking second in appearances (15) and minutes (803:53).

The 6’2, 195-pound goaltender won eight of his first nine decisions, including five straight from March 7-16, and became the third goaltender in League history to win his first NHL start in Detroit (Damian Rhodes, 1991; Rastislav Stana, 2004). Allen made a career-high and Blues season-high 39 saves March 12 versus San Jose and posted his first career shutout March 14 against Phoenix (28 saves).
