Blues’ Halak suffers ‘lower-body injury’ versus Wild


St. Louis Blues goalie Jaroslav Halak left Monday’s game against the Minnesota Wild, and has now been reported that he will not return due to a “lower-body injury.”

Halak entered Monday with a 6-5-1 record, a 2.19 goals-against average and a lackluster save percentage of .897.

Brian Elliott replaced Halak in the Blues’ goal.

A Halak injury almost guarantees that Jake Allen will once again be re-called from the Peoria Rivermen of the American Hockey League.

Allen was only re-assigned back to Peoria on Saturday, after posting an impressive 8-3-0 record in 12 appearance with St. Louis this season.
