The St. Louis Blues on Friday agreed to terms with restricted free agent goaltender Jake Allen on a two-year contract worth $4.7 million, and he is expected to continue to compete with veteran Brian Elliott for the No. 1 job.

“It’s great to get [the contract] out of the way,” Allen said. “I couldn’t be more excited to have two more years in St. Louis. It finally feels like home to me now. I’ll be able to feel secured for two more years; it’s a lot of weight off my shoulders. I’m looking forward to it. It took a little time, but it’s done now and I’m focused on the main goal.”
