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

Apr 1, 2013, 9:35 PM EDT

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.

    Well. the Blues are going all in with the Bouwmeester and Leopold deals. Halak is increasingly looking like a porcelain doll out there and all you can hope is that Elliott gets his s–t together like last year. I just don’t have a good feeling about this.

    Really too bad about Halak, he has the ability to be an elite goalie but just can’t stay healthy.

    Who would have thought the Blues of all teams would be having such crazy goaltending issues this year?

      As a Blues fan, I can’t say I’m surprised. It always seems lately like, 1 good year, then it all goes downhill, find somebody new, repeat…
