Allen was 9-4-0 with a 2.46 goals-against average to lead rookie goalies, filling in when Jaroslav Halak was injured and Brian Elliott was slumping. His .692 winning percentage was a franchise rookie record and he was the team's first rookie to win at least nine games since Curtis Joseph in 1989-90.

With Halak and Elliott also under contract next year, Allen could start the year in the minors. He was a second-round pick in the 2008 draft.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Blues are 12/1 to win the 2014 Stanley Cup Finals, which give them the same odds as the Kings. The Blackhawks, meanwhile, remain 6/1 favorites and the Penguins are 13/2 to win next year’s Stanley Cup.
