Goalie Jake Allen a Montreal Canadien following trade from St. Louis Blues

Goalie Jake Allen a Montreal Canadien following trade from St. Louis Blues”

The Habs and Blues hooked up on a deal that sends goaltender Jake Allen to Montreal in exchange for a couple of draft picks.

Allen has played in Montreal before, with the Montreal Juniors of the QMJHL, and will serve as Carey Price's backup next year.

Allen, who hails from Fredericton, shone in a first-round Stanley Cup playoff series loss to Vancouver, posting a scintillating 1.95 goals-against average and.935 save percentage after 2.15, .927 totals in 24 regular-season games. We saw what a healthy, well-rested Price is capable of in the playoffs - 1.78 goals against average, .936 save percentage, and a pair of shutouts - and by opening up the possibility of a more tandem-like approach to the 2020-21 campaign through heavy stretches, general manager Marc Bergevin is setting his No. 1 netminder up for more success. Allen has a career a 2.50 GAA and a.915 save percentage.

The Blues also received a seventh-round pick in the 2022 NHL Draft.

Fitzpatrick just finished his second pro season, splitting the year between the ECHL's Tulsa Oilers and Brampton Beast. He was a combined 3-5-3.

Fitzpatrick, a Memorial Cup victor in 2018 with the Acadie-Bathurst Titan, was the Blues' second-round draft pick, 59th overall, in the 2016 National Hockey League draft.

The Montreal Canadiens' trade for goaltender Jake Allen Wednesday impacted at least two players with ties to St. John's.
