The One and Only Jake Allen

Player created for Hometown Hockey website

Before St Louis Blues goaltender Jake Allen was an up-and-comer in the NHL he was a promising young golfer as a teenager growing up in New Brunswick.  While his natural talents on the links culminated in back-to-back Junior championships as a teenager, Allen could not ignore his passion for hockey which has led to him becoming the only active NHLer from the city of Fredericton.   Every summer the 25yo returns to his hometown and this past August, he took us out onto the course he both played and worked on leading right up to hearing his name called out at the NHL Draft.
