The Montreal Canadiens signed goaltender Jake Allen to a two-year, $5.75 million contract extension, the team announced on Wednesday.

Allen was acquired from the St. Louis Blues on Sept. 2 in exchange for a third-round pick and a seventh-round selection in the 2020 NHL Draft. The Canadiens also received the Blues' seventh-round pick in 2022.

Allen appeared in 24 games (21 starts) in 2019-20, posting a 12-6-3 record with a 2.15 goals-against average, .927 save percentage and two shutouts in the regular season.

Allen, 30, started four of the six games in the postseason for the Blues, who lost to 4-2 to the Vancouver Canucks in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs. He had a 2-1-1 record with a 1.89 GAA and .935 save percentage.

In 289 career games, Allen has a record of 148-94-26 with a 2.50 GAA, a .913 save percentage and 21 shutouts.
