January 7, 2014

The Chicago Wolves announced Tuesday that goaltender Jake Allen has been returned on loan by the St. Louis Blues and goaltender Jordan Binnington has been reassigned from the Wolves to the ECHL’s Kalamazoo Wings.

ALLEN did not appear in any game action during his time in St. Louis. The 23-year-old netminder has won his last four starts with the Wolves to bump his win total to 14, which shares fourth in the AHL. The Fredericton, New Brunswick, native has appeared in 23 of Chicago’s 35 outings this season (14-7-2) and ranks fourth in the circuit with a 2.17 goals-against average and 11th in the league with a .922 save percentage.

BINNINGTON stopped 31 of 34 shots in regulation and overtime and three of four shootout attempts on Sunday to earn his first AHL victory in his Chicago debut. The 20-year-old netminder has posted a 10-6-1 record and ranks seventh in the ECHL with a 2.21 goals-against average and sixth with a .924 save percentage in 17 games with the Kalamazoo Wings this season. The Richmond Hill, Ontario, native was named the ECHL Rookie of the Month for December after notching a 6-2-0 mark, a 1.74 goals-against average and .941 save percentage in eight appearances during the month.

The Wolves lone tilt this week is an Amtrak Rivalry contest against Milwaukee at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 11, at the Bradley Center. For more information or to purchase tickets to upcoming home games, visit chicagowolves.com or call 1-800-THE-WOLVES.
