Jake Allen Returns to Blues Practice

Blues goalie Jake Allen returned to practice on Tuesday, October 31st, after suffering a concussion this past Saturday, October 27 in a Blues victory over Chicago. Allen was making a big save, when teammate Zach Sanford collided with Allen, Sanford was trying to get back to break up a two on one Blackhawks rush into the St. Louis zone. Allen left the game immediately after the collision and did not return to the game. He went into the NHL’s concussion protocol testing after leaving the game.

Allen and Sanford recalled the collision after Blues practice on Wednesday.
