ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - It’s two more years in a Blues uniform for goaltender Jake Allen.

General manager Doug Armstrong announced the signing, Thursday.

The 22-year-old Allen was named to the NHL All-Rookie Team last season. He posted a 9-4 record and 2.46 goals against average.

The 6-foot-2, 195-pound goaltender posted the best winning 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, in the 2008 NHL Draft.
